6,000 souls have consecrated in the last year

WANT TO RENEW YOUR RELATIONSHIP WITH CHRIST IN THE YEAR OF FAITH?
START WITH HIS MOTHER!
Since the launch of the Hearts Afire program on Divine Mercy Sunday, 2012, there have been many groups forming at parishes around the country and in Canada.  In fact, since April 15, 2012, over 6,000 people have Consecrated themselves to the Sacred Heart of Jesus through the Immaculate Heart of Mary, and hundreds more are planning to Consecrate this Lent and Spring.  It is AMAZING!
  
EXPLANATION
      The first part of the program is 33 Days to Morning Glory, an extraordinary 33-day journey to consecration to Jesus through Mary with four giants of Marian spirituality: St. Louis de Montfort, St. Maximilian Kolbe, Blessed Mother Teresa of Calcutta, and Blessed Pope John Paul II. This 6 week program is life changing! The Book masterfully summarizes their teaching, the retreat companion allows you to go deeper into your heart and relationship with Our Lady and her Son, the small group experience invites an amazing community dynamic, and the DVD presentation by Fr. Michael Gaitley, MIC takes all of it and makes it simple to put into practice in everyday life.
BISHOP JENKY, DIOCESE OF PEORIAIL AND ARCHBISHOP NAUMANN, ARCHDIOCESE OF KANSAS BOTH ENCOURAGED THEIR FLOCK TO DO THE 33 DAYS TO MORNING GLORY RETREAT, PRAISING THE IMPORTANCE AND VALUE OF CONSECRATION/RENEWING YOUR CONSECRATION FOR THE YEAR OF FAITH. 

EVANGELIZATION
      33 DMG is a do-it-yourself preparation for Marian Consecration, but since we are in the New Evangelization it is NOT a keep-it-to-yourself retreat. We need to spread the fire! And, that is happening. People who go through 33 DMG are turning and leading parish or home based groups all over the country, and the beauty of doing the program with the Retreat Companion, small group discussion, and DVDs is that the fruits are even GREATER and Christian communities are forming. Catholics are bonding, and in a time when society is doing its best to divide the Catholic Church. Things are moving FAST… but I guess if you let Mary take over, her Spouse is never far behind and He will hasten evangelization! Catholics are Evangelizing heart to heart and they don't even know it!   

SIMPLE AND INEXPENSIVE
    
Hearts Afire has made it very simple for those interested in Hearts Afire to form a 
group and run the 33 Days to Morning Glory retreat and at a fraction of the cost of most parish-based programs out there. Just contact Julie Musselman at jkmuss@gmail.com or 727-709-8649
