Reconnect Night: "To Heal the Broken Hearted" Praying with St. Charles of Mount Argus

Join us at The Monastery for a night focused heavily on healing.

When: July 18th at 7pm at the Monastery

Who: All are invited

What: A night of healing and prayer based the the life and spirituality of St. Charles of Mount Argus - There will be a blessing with his relic, music, and a reflection by Joe Farris, Director of Mission, St. Paul of the Cross Monastery

Joe Farris is a lay Passionist and evangelist who has traveled all over the United States for the past 20 years speaking to hundreds of thousands of Catholics with a constant message of inspiration and encouragement. This night will include Reconciliation.

During his very solemn funeral that was attended by people from all of Ireland there was definite proof of the popular devotion that had surrounded him throughout his life.   In a newspaper of the time we read: “Never before has the memory of any man sparked an explosion of religious sentiment and profound veneration as that which we observed in the presence of the mortal remains of Father Charles.”   The Superior of the monastery wrote to his family:  “The people have already declared him a saint.”

Heavenly Father,
you filled Blessed Charles with your Holy Spirit.

In love with Christ Crucified
he spent his life in prayer at the foot of the cross.
From the cross he went forth to bring good news to the poor,
healing to the sick and dying,
and forgiveness to the sinner.

Through the intercession of Blessed Charles
give us the graces we need.
Heal our aches and pains,
our hurts and wounds,
our anxieties and bad memories.
Free us from depressions, habits of sin, and all evil.
Strengthen our faith,
deepen our hope,
and increase our love.

We make our prayer through Christ our Lord.
