"Honey in the Rock: Finding God in All Things"

Women's Retreat with Magnificat
Sr. Marguerite Marie and the DLJC Sisters

Sept. 23-25, 2022
3-Day Weekend Retreat for Women

Retreat starts Friday with a talk at 8:00pm followed by Mass, ends Sunday with Noon lunch.

Our Lady of Good Counsel Retreat House in Waverly welcomes back the Sisters of the Disciples of the Lord Jesus Christ (DLJC Sisters) for a weekend retreat for Women September 23-25, sponsored by the Morning Star Chapter of Magnificat.

The theme of the retreat, “Honey in the Rock: Finding God in All Things” comes from Psalm 81:16,”I would feed you with the finest wheat, and with honey from the rock I would satisfy you.”

The retreat is an invitation for women of all ages who are looking for growth and transformation: to ‘Be Renewed in the Spirit’, to receive a greater outpouring of God’s Love in Jesus, and to rediscover the promise of the Father in the Holy Spirit. A series of teachings and reflections will accompany personal times of prayer and discussion.

The retreat will be based on the Scriptures and the Catechism, and will be a time to ponder the role of the Holy Spirit and how God provides for all our needs, He quenches our thirst and feeds our hunger. As the Pentecost sequence prays:

You, of comforters the best; You, the soul’s most welcome guest; Sweet refreshment here below;
In our labor, rest most sweet; Grateful coolness in the heat; Solace in the midst of woe.

The retreat will be given by Sr. Marguerite Marie and Sr. Mary Nika of the Disciples of the Lord Jesus, a Franciscan Charismatic Religious Congregation in the Diocese of Amarillo, Texas.

From a young age Sr. Marguerite Marie had a desire to live for the Lord completely and to be His. After graduating college, she entered the Disciples of the Lord Jesus Christ in 2010, professing vows August 10, 2013. She has joyfully served in various capacities in the community, including our local house at the Ark and the Dove in Pittsburgh, PA. She says, “God fulfills every desire of our hearts, we just have to be patient and follow the Lamb wherever He goes.”

Sister Mary Nika has been a member of the Disciples of the Lord Jesus Christ since August of 2019, beginning her walk with the Lord in the novitiate in 2020.  She will be joyfully professing her first vows of poverty, chastity, and obedience on August 6, 2022 (just before this retreat).

Magnificat is a women’s ministry that encourages a lively, active faith in the Lord, along with a love for Mary and the Church. Members are encouraged to become more open to the Holy Spirit through a deeper commitment of their lives to Jesus as Lord and to loving service.
