Schedule: September 2012

September 5-Full Member WAY-In (location?)

September 12 Rule Talk/readings-on the Sacred Heart: Croiset-Chapter's 1-3 (The Motives for this devotion)

 As you begin this month and the study of the Sacred Heart, address one way you can show greater devotion to the Eucharist.  Possible practices to acquire/adapt (work on only one thing!): attire for Mass/Adoration/visits to the Blessed Sacrament; wearing of the veil; prayer of thanksgiving following reception of the Eucharist; length of fast before reception-3 hours versus one hour; preparatory prayer (time and quality) before Mass.  This is not an exhaustive list, ask the Holy Spirit to guide the emphasis of your devotion. Your practice this month-add/increase one aspect of your Eucharistic reverence and note the impact this has on you or those around you.  

September 19-Study of Therese:  Maurice and Therese
Read the Introduction and Chapter One-A Leap of Faith As you read the correspondence between Maurice and the Reverend Mother, I urge you to consider the impact our words have on one another-of our human need to be loved and supported in an efficacious and holy manner.  The life of a priest can be a lonely life.  The prayers, sacrifices and words of encouragement we offer will help or hinder their human and spiritual formation.  Beseech Mary to guide your words.

September 26-Council Meeting (location-Vivian's home?)
