 Retrouvaille of Fresno

Retrouvaille: A Lifeline for Troubled Marriages

Thinking about separation or divorce? Is your marriage or that of a relative or friend heading for divorce? Retrouvaille (pronounced retro-vi with a long i) is designed to help troubled marriages regain their health. It helps spouses uncover or re-awaken the love, trust and commitment that originally brought them together. The program is highly successful in saving hurting marriages, even bringing reconciliation to couples who have already separated or divorced. The next English weekend in Fresno will be held November 09-11, 2018. For confidential information or to register, call Rudy & Lori Torres at (559) 862-6765

Jesus’ invitation in giving us his flesh and blood to eat and drink is an invitation to enter into his own self-giving. Eucharist is self-giving. We can be self-giving like Jesus because through the Eucharist, the body of Christ, we become Jesus. This is why we can “remain” in Jesus—we are transformed by what we eat. Our relationship to Jesus, then becomes a relationship of indwelling, of divine life. Eucharist is both gift given and invitation to our self-giving. The mystery of Eucharist strengthens us for our daily dying and rising, our daily giving of ourselves for the sake of others so that we all might share more abundantly in divine life.

  Vincentian Meditation:

Like so many of God’s graces and blessings, which we receive from Him daily, we take them too easily as something as ordinary as the light of day. The challenge for all of us, who have the joy and privilege of receiving Communion, weekly or even daily, is to keep in our souls a sense of wonder that the Bread of Life which we eat is the same as was distributed by Our Lord to his apostles at the Last Supper. The Last Supper is going on still. Just before we receive the Body and Blood of Christ in Holy Communion, the Church reminds us that we are happy to be called to the table of the Lord. “Happy are those who are called to His supper,” for at this supper it is no ordinary bread. As we receive the host, Jesus Christ is saying to each one of us in particular: “Whoever eats my flesh and drinks my blood remains in me and I in him.”

St. Vincent De Paul wrote,” To be involved in the service of Jesus, is a sacred trust to which we have been invited”.
