The Bride Revealed | Advent Day of Prayer with the Immaculate Conception of the Blessed Virgin Mary | Presented by: Fr. Greg Cleveland, OMV, Director, Lanteri Center

Date: Saturday, December 8, 2018 9am-2:30pm
Cost: $25.00
Location: Lanteri Center for Ignatian Spirituality 416 22nd Street Denver, CO  | Solemn Mass of the Immaculate Conception at Holy Ghost Church 1900 California St, Denver, CO at 8am.

Advent is a time of longing and patient waiting for our heart’s desire and the coming of our Savior. Based on insights from the Song of Songs, Fr. Greg will show us how Mary typifies Israel’s longing for the coming Messiah. Her complete virginal commitment to God alone is something we can all imitate. In our pursuit of holiness, we can participate in her all-holy fullness of grace and life. She is a model of prayer for us in her pondering God’s word and plan for her life. Mary, immaculately conceived and full of grace is not distant from us, but rather close to our hearts. Discover a more intimate connection and relationship with her.
