Day of Recollection this Sunday at Grotto; and, Bishop Schneider's book, "Corpus Christi

The Order of Canons Regular of the Holy Cross, through their apostolate, Opus Angelorum, will be giving their annual, summer Day of Recollection at Assumption Grotto, this Sunday.  After the Noon Mass there is a Eucharistic Procession to the outdoor grotto where the Rosary is prayed, weather permitting (otherwise there is Exposition in the church with Rosary).  The parish has grilled meats, along with the usual donuts and coffee, each Sunday, with only a few exceptions.  With the conference set at 2:00, it gives a little time to spend having a quick meal.  

You can read more about Opus Angelorum here and visit the Opus Angelorum website here

This is an opportune time to mention that Bishop Athanasius Schneider's latest book, Corpus Christi, is being distributed here in the U.S. by them. I know they have stacks of it in the convent, so if you come, look for it on their table with other books.  If you want to order the book, you can do so online.  Here is a report about the book from Catholic News Agency before it was available in English.

They also have many of their talks recorded.  One I frequently recommend is, "On Holy Silence" (scroll down). You can see many other titles by scrolling, and by clicking on the sections in the side bar for other subject areas.  

The Grotto News - Assumption Grotto's weekly bulletin, is out (these are only online in PDF form for a limited time so do a save-as on it if you want to keep it).   With Fr. Perrone away on his July vacation, you can read Fr. John's column.  In it, he has a reminder about the Preparation for Total Consecration According to St. Louis de Montfort.  I'm sure books will be available in the Grotto gift shop for that.  In fact, Sunday will be a good time to browse with the Day of Recollection taking place at 2:00.

Help is also needed for our feast day and the bulletin has a chart showing where you can help.
