- Bon Secours Young Adults is hosting one of our twice-yearly Bon Secours Charism Formation Weekends at Bon Secours Townley IV Farm starting today and going through Sunday, August 5, 2018. We are filled with gratitude that young adults from across Virginia, Washington, DC, and Maryland will be joining us for a weekend of prayer and deepening of their connection to the Sisters of Bon Secours and the Charism of Bon Secours “to bring God’s compassion, healing, and liberation to people in need.”We hope that you would be open to keeping all of us on retreat this weekend in your prayers.This weekend we will be exploring what the Bon Secours Charism means by the words, “God’s Liberation.” We hope that each participant will walk away from the weekend with a deeper sense of God’s liberation in their own lives, and a greater understanding of how they can bring God’s liberation to a world in great need of just that. Here is a prayer that you can use, if it helps:Peace WithinMay today there be peace within.May you trust God that you are exactly where you are meant to be.May you not forget the infinite possibilities that are born of faith.May you use those gifts that you have received, and pass on the love that has been given to youMay you be confident knowing you are a child of God.Let this presence settle into your bones, and allow your soul the freedom to sing, dance, praise and love.It is there for each and every one of us.– St. Therèse of Lisieux and St. Theresa of Avila
Pope Francis released a new Apostolic Exhortation today on holiness in the contemporary world. You can open the PDF version of it here. Apostolic Exhortations are important teaching documents of the church. Let us all take some time to read and contemplate on the call of Francis and explore in our hearts the question: how am I challenged to holiness in the contemporary world?

Sample Script: “I’m your constituent from [CITY/TOWN], and I urge you to support the U.S. refugee resettlement program. I strongly oppose President Trump’s all-time-low cap on refugee admissions, as well as his continued Muslim and refugee bans. I urge you to do everything in your power to see that the administration resettle at least the 45,000 refugees they have set as the cap for 2018 and urge the administration to commit to resettling at least 75,000 in 2019. Resettlement is a core American legacy that allows refugees to rebuild their lives in safety and dignity. My community welcomes refugees, and I urge you to reflect the best of our nation by supporting the refugee resettlement program.”
