OVERCOMING SPIRITUAL DISCOURAGEMENT

Freedom from one of the greatest obstacles in life – the “cage” of everyday discouragement we all experience.

Fr. Timothy Gallagher O.M.V.
is a Catholic priest, speaker, author,  retreat leader

What you will learn:

• How to leave the sins, weaknesses, and failures  of your past to God’s mercy
• Ways you can be joyful even when you do not feel happy
• How to evade sadness, melancholy, and temptation
• Proven techniques for waging warfare against negative moods
• How to recognize the enemy, even when he presents himself  under the appearance of good
• What is holy presumption, why you want it, and how to get it
• What to do when you have reached the point of despair

There is no shame in discouragement. Father Gallagher reminds us that the greatest of saints suffered from this affliction. The key is to learn how to draw closer to God in life’s difficult moments.

Conference Cost: $70 includes materials and four meals
