“The Lord desires to do more than call us to be close to Him. He wants to give Himself entirely to us. The Holy Spirit makes us enter into the very Heart of Jesus, into this blazing furnace of Love. What we must ask the Lord is for Him to light the fire in our hearts”  Pierre Goursat

As the feast of Pentecost approaches, let us prepare our hearts to receive a new outpouring of the Holy Spirit to renew the Emmanuel Community and through her, the Church and the whole world.  The Emmanuel Community has put together a simple and easily accessible retreat in which all can participate.

This retreat called “15 days of prayer with Pierre Goursat” will consist in reading and praying each day with one chapter of the book by the same name.  This is an opportunity to deepen our understanding of our founder, who had such a strong desire that “it should burn!”  Together with Pierre Goursat, let us ask the Holy Spirit to enkindle our hearts in the fire of His love so that the world may be filled with His burning love!

The retreat will be from Saturday May 16 to Saturday May 30, the eve of the feast of Pentecost.
