"It had been seven weeks since we buried our 14-year-old grandson, Alexander, due to a brain tumor. The anger and grief within the family greatly affected all, and my son lost his faith in God. My daughter-in-law withheld my granddaughter from my loving embrace. My sorrow and cries of lamentation were heard by Almighty God, and I returned from the Shalom Retreat greatly healed and strengthened to face with hope my fractured family. Total forgiveness healed me, and the talk on generational sin helped me understand why my loved ones are so confused. My husband and I were greatly blessed by this experience."
"Praise the Lord! He is offering me a “New Springtime.” As I sat with the Lord in prayer after my third Shalom Retreat, I told Him that I looked forward to our second honeymoon! I experienced two healings during Eucharistic Adoration: Friday evening, I was delivered from pain of childhood trauma; Sunday, after Holy Mass, anointing and prayer, I was set free from the fear of voicing my pain. My daddy trapped and whipped me when I was a child, forbidding me to cry. I felt a choking sensation during deliverance, as I found it hard at my age (75) to disobey my earthly daddy and receive what my Abba Father was giving me. I just kept calling “Jesus, Jesus, Jesus,” to keep receiving His gift. This wound will require another touch from the Lord, but I know Him to be faithful and He will do it. Glory and praise to Him who began this good work and will bring it to completion!"
"I am so grateful for God's invitation to a Shalom retreat. I feel so much closer to my Heavenly Father and learned so much from the different speakers. I went in heavily burdened and came out much lighter. I still have a way to go, but with the help of the Holy Spirit, I know I'll get there. Words cannot express my gratitude for all your prayers and everyone's hard work."
"Overwhelmed by life's troubles, I was living a charismatic life but running like the “Energizer Bunny.” Busy in the church and work, I was not slowing down to heal inner wounds. This years’ Shalom Retreat brought wholeness to my life and I am free of the deep wounds of hurt caused during my infancy. I was neglected by my baby sitter until the day my mother caught her sleeping on the job, found me crying profusely in my bassinet with sour milk in my bottle, and fired her. Because of the Shalom Retreat, no longer is that wound a part of my life--God has set me free. I will continue to attend annual retreats to grow stronger in my faith and more ready to serve the Risen and Almighty Lord Christ Jesus."
"My husband and I were fortunate to attend the Shalom Retreat, along with my brother and sister-in-law. We all experienced the Holy Spirit on an interior level within our minds and hearts, as well as external manifestations of the Holy Spirit (through weeping tears, and the feeling of a gentle current and water being poured). The Holy Spirit spoke to us through the preachers, and the words cut to our hearts. We are looking at the world differently now, and our lives are forever changed. Words cannot express the healing Confession has done for us spiritually and emotionally. Thank You, Lord, for being so good to us; thanks to all who interceded for us at the Retreat. Our Lord blessed us tremendously because of those countless prayers."
"At 30-years-old, I experienced real happiness for the first time, with the Shalom Retreat. The first day, I was in-tune with the Lord and cried, acknowledging my sins and realizing God’s mercy. Yet, the next day, I felt numb and couldn’t even praise the Lord. I went to bed thinking maybe I was too much of a sinner and would be going home empty again. Next morning, the spiritual counselor (a sister) said, “God has healed you.” I cried, apologizing to God for not believing. The Holy Spirit asked her to read Luke 15:24: “because this son of mine was dead, and has come back to life again; he was lost and has been found. Then a celebration began.” Glory to God! In the past, I avoided getting too close to God because I knew the battle with evil would really start, but I was foolish. I have a lot of catching up to do. Praise the Lord!"
"I was greatly blessed by a recent Shalom Retreat! "He heals the brokenhearted and binds up their wounds" (Psalm 147:3). During the past year and a half, I've had serious medical issues and felt isolated, lonely, and numb. Being steeped in the oasis of inspired teachings, prayer and worship, silence, spiritual counseling, Confession, Holy Mass, Adoration, and fervent songs of loving praise--all guided by the anointed Shalom Team--I sensed the Spirit breathing new life into me. I'm so grateful my husband and I shared this healing, the actual transformation of our very-long marriage! I know now, more than ever, that I am loved and safely held, and that the Fire of His love is burning in me."
"During the Shalom Retreat, I experienced the Truth of God and the Mercy of Our Lord Jesus Christ. Now my heart is confident that Jesus Christ loves me wholeheartedly, and it is filled with gratitude and love for Jesus Christ. I am so grateful for the spiritual sharing and the priest, especially during Adoration. The stubborn darkness over my heart and mind has finally been broken. I know now how vital priests are for our spiritual healing. Truly, they intercede before the altar for us in the most effective of ways. I thought I would never become free of despair and shame. I thank God for every one of you!"
"What an amazing experience I had at the Shalom Retreat, from the inspirational words to the heart-melting spiritual healing. Words cannot express how I felt. I would like to encourage people to attend because it will change lives and give people understanding and peace. I was touched so much and never had such an amazing experience! God willing, I will be moving forward and getting all my Sacraments. From the bottom of my heart, I would like to thank everyone who made this possible."
"The Lord not only took my pain, He gave me abundant love, grace and mercy. I felt He wanted me to be humble, Holy, and a saint. He wanted me to change my way of dressing, and to cut friendships and language that separated me from Him. When I went to spiritual sharing, one of the counselor's said, ‘In the back of all the shadows of sin, I see a saint.’ My Lord also healed my body. I had been in the hospital for anemia, and was at the Blessed Sacrament when the Lord told me, ‘I can give you your blood back, but sin no more.’ Right after that, in the Retreat, my symptoms were gone. I medically confirmed the Lord had healed my anemia when I went to the doctor for blood work. He told me, ‘You are not anemic anymore.’ Praise the Lord! He not only rescued me from the way of life I was living, but He rescued me from eternal death.”
"Over my 73 years, I have attended many "spiritual" conferences and retreats, but the Shalom Retreat tops my list. I tapped into the lost regions of my soul and found the Father, the Crucified Jesus, the Holy Spirit, and Mama Mary. I am on a new Spirit-filled path; my future looks bright and I find myself in the embrace of a loving God. Many, many thanks to all those who enabled this Shalom weekend to be one of the greatest weekends of my life."
"After 38 years of back pain, I was advised by doctors to get surgery for my spine, but with no real hope that my pain would resolve. My wife and I attended a Shalom Revival. We all said a Rosary, worshiped, and I focused on Jesus in Adoration, asking Him with all my mind, body and soul to heal me. Jesus granted my healing, taking my pain away instantly. Others caution me asking, “What if the pain comes back?” If that is God’s Will, I will accept the pain. l take great comfort knowing my Lord Jesus is listening. All glory, honor and praise to GOD."
"I had knee pain for almost seven months after my delivering my second child and told Jesus, “I feel bad that I cannot kneel and pray in front of You.” At the Shalom Revival, the preacher said, “Jesus is healing someone’s left knee.” Even then I didn't think it was mine. I never before had a complete physical healing directly from God during an Adoration. Now I can't express my joy and thanks in words. Our good Lord Jesus healed my knee pain completely. Praise the Lord and all thanks to Him!"
