Mary’s Fiat is My Fiat – Retreat

17 March 2023 - 19 March 2023

A$40.00 – A$330.00

Mary’s Fiat is my Fiat - March 2023

"Let it be done to me according to thy will"

Angelus Consecration Ceremony
New Members to be consecrated – please register now.
Join us for the Zoom online preparation during February/March to prepare candidates for their consecration
The Feast of the Annunciation is held on the 25 March and celebrates the Incarnation of Jesus Christ. The Word was made flesh and the Holy Spirit descended upon earth and through Mary the Christ child was born.

Mary questioned the implications of the angel’s message; we too like Mary will have doubts about our spiritual experiences or insights and question how this can be. Mary overcame her human reservations or will to say “Yes “or (fiat) to God.

When Mary surrendered her human will to say yes (fiat) to God an infusion of His light illuminated her.
When we say “yes “to God and desire to make a space in our hearts for God’sWord; the power of His Holy Spirit descends,impregnates and spiritually illuminates us through grace for our prayer mission.
