"Adventure into the Interior Life" - Rose Sweet

"Adventure into the Interior Life" with Rose Sweet
Posted on 02/12/2020

Saints Peter and Paul Parish Presents: 
Our Parish Lenten Mission/March 8, 9 & 10/school Café 

National Speaker and Author Rose Sweet 
Missions should call the people to return to Christ with all their hearts. Too often we forget the 
extravagant love of God and are distracted by the care of family, work, and the world. Drawing from 
Scripture, the Catechism, and her own journey, Rose Sweet will guide our parish on an "Adventure" into the interior. With her signature heart and humor, she'll take us where saints and mystics have gone—the interior life—to rediscover and remember the Love for which we were made. For a Lenten Mission, these talks will also tie into the suffering Jesus, endured for us and how our own suffering can help us DETACH (Talk 1) LOVE (Talk 2) and BE IN UNION WITH GOD (Talk 3).

Night One ~ Happiness 
Sunday, March 8, 6:15-8:15 pm 

If the goal of the Christian life is to "live happily ever after," how can we find our fairy tale ending in an upside-down world? This talk is suited to teens and up and invites the parish to get in touch with the deepest desires of their hearts. To help us stay on track, Rose introduces the classic "Four Levels of Happiness" and practical steps to finding 
authentic joy—even when the world around you may be falling apart. Includes an introduction to Inordinate Attachments and Theology of the Body. 

Night Two ~ Relationships 
Monday, March 9, 6:15 - 8:15 pm 

Even Harvard proved it: what makes us most happy is a meaningful, safe, and loving relationship. Then why do they sometimes cause us so much disappointment and misery? To follow Christ, we are called to "Put our RELIGION into 
our RELATIONSHIPS," often a most difficult thing to do! But—looking to Christ and His interactions with others— Rose offers helpful ways of relating to and loving others rightly in "The Four Rules of Relationship." 

Night Three ~ Romance 
Tuesday, March 10, 6:15-8:15 pm 

Romance is the drawing of the heart into love, through beauty  and that is precisely what God intends for every soul. No matter if you're single, married, divorced, or religious, your heart was made for romance—in the widest and 
most eternal sense. This talk explores the powerful Scriptural imagery of the Bride and Bridegroom and what that means in every-day life. Rose reveals the "Seven Stages of Romance" as a way to understand the spiritual life. Introduction to the Spousal Analogy and the Mystical Marriage . . . with a surprise ending!
