Miracle / deep healing required as I'm at or near rock bottom:
Q. I am doing the retreat as a full participant as I urgently require change - I have another person who loves me and really wants this change for me also, but they aren't Catholic (or aren't prepared to do as much as I am). How do I invite them to join me?
A. Keeping in mind that you are praying for God's Will, let your special person know the following components of the retreat:
Reading, Fasting, Videos, Rosary, daily emails
Ask them what they would be comfortable doing - eg they may say Reading, Fasting, Videos, daily emails and no Rosary. It may be more, or less. Accept this as their genuine offering. Their fasting may be as simple as no coffee on Friday's, for you, in God's name.
Please only invite (and pray!) - do not push, this is really important to our own faith development too.
It is suggested that this occur gradually - allow the person time to think and not rush. It isn't recommended to say 'it's starting tomorrow, I need your decision today'!!
