Called To Love Again
Participate in the Sacraments of Grace:
Communion: Where we bring the sacrifice of our life to meet Jesus’ sacrifice for us. This allows us to lay down our life for Him and in return give our hearts a great and greater capacity to love. Here he prepares us for the Gift of Self.
Reconciliation: Here we learn to be vulnerable and experience the Lord’s unconditional love despite our sins. Here he offers us forgiveness and it is important that we too forgive ourselves for past mistakes and sins. This sacrament holds us accountable to the body of Christ which we not only injure our self in sinning but also injury the church.
Spend time with Jesus in prayer. We learn to meditate on God’s word so that he might guide us each day by his still small quiet voice. The four R’s of meditative prayer are Read, Reflect, Relate and Respond.
Commit to taking part in spiritual formation which allows us to understand God’s plan for us according to the Bible and the Catechism of the Catholic Church. Here we learn how to discern and find true love in hopes of a new marriage.
Be accompanied by others who have experienced divorced and are journeying together to offer friendship and support as we share with each other how our hearts are healing and finding this beautiful joy in seeing how the Lord is redeeming us for true love.
Invite others who have experienced divorce to join us. They need what you have found; hope and love. God intends for us to share our struggles and more importantly tell of the joy we have found in our journey to finding love.
