Consider Consecration05-26-2019Fr. Larry Merta
Every two years priests of the Diocese of Phoenix gather together with their bishop and reflect on the important topics concerning the life of the Church. Fr. Michael Gaitley, MIC, who brought us the Do-It-Yourself Retreat, 33 Days to Morning Glory gave three conferences to us on the last day—and I am still harvesting fruitful reflection from his talks. I keep hearing him say those, "Go in to the Desert", which was a reference to how the Holy Spirit led Jesus into the wilderness for 40 days where he could be alone with His Father, gathering strength through His fast before beginning his public life.
I am drawn to those words anew, eager to implement the lessons and inspirations of those days. Since then, I have given more importance to observing exterior silence at home and office—not that I enjoy it for silence's sake but to be attentive to things that God may not want me to miss.READ MORE
