Education, Inspiration & Announcements
Luke 13: 31-35
Jesus is fully confident in God’s love for Him and the divine plan. The Lord is calmly disposed to the Father’s plan for Him and for the human family. When one is confident in God’s love – when one sees herself as the Beloved – it is easier to be docile.
O Gracious God, I am confident in Your love for me and your plan for me and my brothers and sisters.

A recent conference at Elms College titled “What Every Faith Leader Should Know About Addiction” was organized and presented by Guest House Alumni and demonstrates how our ministry to clergy and men and women religious has a ripple effect into a much wider community. When clergy and religious in recovery share their experience, strength, and hope they reach an audience that is literally worldwide.
The enhanced Guest House programming for compulsive overeating has the potential to bring hope to countless struggling men and women. As Fr. Ryan mentioned in the video – his struggles with addiction and overeating have actually helped him to more effectively minister to others from a perspective of solidarity and compassion.
