The Luminous Mysteries were prayed. The Spiritual reading was taken from the Handbook page 113-116 Chapter 18 Titled: Order of the Praesidium Meeting. The Allocutio was given by Father Hugh Gillespie concerning the importance in understanding of the Handbook. The deeper we are in the Handbook, the more we will be able to understand it. Just reading it is not enough; we need time to reflect on it deeply and gain spiritual insight as to its meaning.
The Handbook assignment is Chapter 19 Titled: The Meeting and the Member page 116-119 parts 1-9. The study assignment is Chapter 13 page 123-129 in The Man Called Montfort by E.C. Bolger.
Everyone is welcome at Our Lady of the Island Shrine this Saturday, Sunday and Monday for Our Lady of the Rosary Weekend Retreat with Father Hugh Gillespie SMM. Please check OurLadyoftheIsland.org for more details.
Our next meeting will be October 15, 2014 at 7PM.
