Welcome to the Pray More Healing Retreat!

We invite you to join us for the next few weeks to reflect on God’s faithful love and presence in your life, and learn how to move from a place of pain and fear to a place of peace and faith.

St. John Paul II said that suffering is almost inseparable from man’s earthly existence. At times, suffering can lead you closer to Christ. And at other times, it can seem to lead you further away from Him. We created this retreat to help steer you closer back to Him, who is the divine healer.

As a part of this retreat, you will receive access to 16 different talks on healing. Some of them are about healing from specific problems – things like anxiety and worry, addiction, abuse, miscarriage and divorce. Some are about healing the wounds of our heart, and learning our worth and dignity. Others are about God’s faithfulness in the darkest of times. Lastly, we also have a few talks about what to do when you don’t receive the healing you’ve been praying for and working towards.

You can participate in this retreat at your own pace. Some of the talks are 10 minutes long, and others are closer to 20. You will be able to watch them whenever you have the time, or to download them and listen to them even while you’re on-the-go.

We hope the Pray More Healing Retreat will bring you closer to God’s healing love — wherever you are, and whenever you have the time.

All the presentations will be available beginning on Monday, August 6th. If you register now, we will send you an e-mail as soon as it is live and available for you to enjoy :)

God bless you!

She left her job and founded Made in His Image.

Maura has an immense yearning to inspire others to choose to see beauty in their suffering and in the ambiguity of life. It is her desire to use her story to foster hope and healing in the lives of all she encounters. Maura is dedicated to breaking the stigma associated with therapy and educating women about their inherent dignity, beauty and the love that God has for them as Father.

A young man without faith turned overnight into a passionate Eucharist-loving daily Mass-attending proud Roman Catholic Christian. After experiencing  his first World Youth Day in Toronto, 2002, he attended Franciscan University of Steubenville studying Catechetics, Philosophy, Theology and TV/Film. While there he was offered the opportunity to work for the manager of the most notable Catholic actor in Hollywood Jim Caviezel (Passion of the Christ).

In 2012 he left his final long term Mission in India and settled back in the US. He  finished his undergraduate in Texas, graduating Magna Cum Laude from the Mexican American Catholic College with a degree in Pastoral Ministry.
