Testimonies from Houston
This was an AMAZING weekend. It was peaceful, Spirit filled, encouraging, empowering, all things Catholic. I loved the way you honored the young mothers, pregnant and with their infants. These young mothers are building their best domestic church-their families. The take away was knowing where you are is where you are supposed to be.
The Eucharistic adoration procession was SO moving. I have never experienced anything like it. It reminded me that Jesus pursues me daily, and to see Him actually coming towards ME was SO incredible. I can only imagine that this is just a fraction of the joy and anticipation that we will feel upon entering heaven and meeting Him face to face for the first time. Thank you for allowing me to share that.
I also truly just loved hearing 400 women sing and worship together. It seems simple but just hearing everyone’s voice during worship brought me to tears several times. Thank you for this beautiful ministry.
After this weekend I am saying “yes” to hosting a Blessed Brunch so that I can continue to help grow the community. And encourage others to go on retreat next year!
This was my second retreat with BIS and it blew me away as much as the first. Having a theme for the weekend really brings everything together. The worship is the most beautiful music, brings me to tears. I can’t wait to bring more friends and family to next year’s retreat.
