Coming away from the weekend retreat with Fr. Jay and the other couples, I walk away feeling extremely blessed! This past weekend of experiencing a third retreat with Fr. Jay has proved to be another God inspired event. It is miraculous to see God working through Fr. Jay and him being so active to respond.
In completing a retreat and getting to work as part of the Team, I can feel the grace, joy, and passion Fr. Jay has through living out his calling of shepherding couples. I am able to see that as I observe other couples at the retreat open up and expose those truths that were hindering their relationship. Through that, hurt is released and given to God, allowing love to take place.
I experienced this at my first retreat with my husband Brad, then again at the following two retreats I have been blessed to help out at. It is always an honor to be in Fr. Jays presence, so I will continue to pray that the Holy Spirit continues to lead his journey. It is also a powerful example to be on a team with such strong couples. Thanks be to God for allowing this retreat to take place once again in the beautiful Diocese of Springfield. Thanks be to God for the willingness of couples to desire to live out the Sacrament of marriage. May we all continue to pray for this powerful ministry, and that through God’s grace, will change the face of marriages.
