33 days to morning glory
Based on the best-selling book 33 Days to Morning Glory by Fr. Michael Gaitley, MIC, this 33 Days to Morning Glory Group Retreat* goes more deeply into understanding and living Marian consecration than the book alone. The Retreat Companion (workbook), the DVD talks, and the small group discussion bring each participant on an unforgettable and life-transforming journey.
33 days to merciful love
Based on the book, 33 Days to Merciful Love, by Fr. Michael Gaitley, MIC, this 33 Days to Merciful Love Group Retreat goes even deeper than the book alone and explores new material on the heart of St. Thérèse of Lisieux’s Little Way, uncovering the power of trust in the face of personal darkness, inspiring participants to become great saints amid ordinary circumstances, and laying the foundation for a personal consecration to Divine Mercy.
