WAVERLY (SNR) - Men and women of all ages are invited to a weekend retreat on the “Seven Sorrows of Mary” with Father Steve Thomlison, Nov. 17-19 at Our Lady of Good Counsel Retreat House.
The purpose of the devotion of the Seven Sorrows is to promote union with the sufferings of Christ through union with the special suffering Our Lady endured as the Mother of God.
“By uniting ourselves with both the Passion of Christ and His holy Mother,” Father Thomlison said, “we enter into Jesus’ Heart and honor Him greatly; He is more honored because we have so honored His Mother.
“This retreat is for anyone who wants to learn about the graces and benefits of this great devotion of the Seven Sorrows of Mary,” he explained.
Ordained in 2010, Father Thomlison is pastor at St. Stephen Parish in Exeter and St. Wenceslaus in Milligan, and he is chaplain for both the Nebraska Army National Guard and the Nebraska State Patrol. Follow him on Facebook at facebook.com/fr.thomlison.
