preaching ministry of Fr. James in the year 2019
Brest - France. March 15 to 17th. 2019
From 15th to 17th March, Fr. James and team preached a charismatic
retreat at 'Eglise Saint Jacques' in Brest-France by the invitation
of Bishop Mgr Laurent DOGNIN. It was organised by Maryvonne Lavalloir &
Patricia Brassart Paulhiac in the Catholic association' Fontaine D'Eau
Vive', with the able support & guidance of the Parish Priest
Jean Baptiste GLESS and other volunteers. On the first day Fr. James released
his new book book named " Ten moments Jesus shed His Blood" ( in French)
by giving the first copy to to Fr. Jean Baptiste, the parish priest.
Fr. James and Dr. Richie preached on the subject " Sanctify yourselves
today, tomorrow you will see miracles" ( Joshua 3.5). In fact, the whole
retreat was in the context of the Lent - it was really an opportunity for
the participants to experience the fruits of the passion of Jesus Christ!
Both Fr. James. and Dr. Richie gave very powerful talks focussing on the
Passion of Christ that helped the participants for a new life by
repentance & conversion. Sr. Gaby Landauro gave her testimony of life
with emphasis on consecration. Maryvonne also shared her testimony about
her conversion and new life in her retreat with Fr. James at Lourdes and
how she started organising retreats for him in France. All the talks and
prayers were beautifully translated by Vincent Maduraud. On the second
day, Sunday, the Parish priest Fr. Jean Baptiste GLESS presided the
concelebration of the mass. On the last day, Sunday, the Vicar general
of the diocese Rt. Rev Fr. Alain Guellec presided over the concelebrated
mass and preached. Mr. Jacques Comand and Miss Marianne Vertommen
consecrated their lives for holiness in Charis Marian Covenant Community
on the second day during the mass..There were several priests to hear confessions
on all days and to concelebrate the Holy Mass. Many people shared
testimonies of conversion, healing and new life. Fr. James prayed over
each participant of the retreat on Sunday morning.Here are some photos
The first charismatic retreat of this year by Fr. James and team was preached
from 25th to 27th January 2019 in Weingut Stefanhof at Burgenland, Austria.
The theme of the retreat was "Sanctify yourselves today, tomorrow you will
see the wonders of the Lord" (Joshua 3:5). Fr. James and Dr. Richie gave
powerful talks on the need of holiness for the church and the people of
God that led every participant to very good conversions of hearts,
confessions, inner healing and new life. The atmosphere and the events
were very grace- filled according to all who participated. It was organised
by deacon Erwin and his Wife Ottilie, & Johanna Klein with their prayer
group. Mr. Joseph and Irmgard Gross gave their mighty support for conducting
the retreat. Fr. Florian, Deacons Kurt, Christian,(with there wives Silvie
& Gabi) Deacon Werner and other priests and deacons were
a great help for the preaching team, organisers and the participants. Gaby
Landauro was there with her sisterly or maternal love & smile for all.
The music was by Miss Beata of Graz and team.
Although it was snowing and very cold out side, the hearts all
were set on fire within by the infilling of the Holy Spirit! Her are some
