The First Annual Ecumenical Retreat of the
American Association of True Life in God

Nov 9-11, 2007

Philadelphia, Pennsylvania USA

It seems fitting that the first North American meeting of AATLIG should take place in Philadelphia, the City of Brotherly Love. North America can and should be a great servant to the Lord in spreading His Message, not just in North America but the whole world.

This meeting will be a landmark occasion for TLIG and everyone interested in TLIG, everyone who loves the messages, everyone who wants to learn, to grow, to be inspired - everyone who loves the church and wants to see her renewed. This retreat is open to all who are interested in True Life in God.

Make it a priority, especially if you have never attended an international TLIG pilgrimage, to experience renewal and great friendship. We will get to know each other, experience uplifting keynote speakers and have daily mass at significant shrines. You will be inspired and have the opportunity to come forward and be part of our larger family. It will be a wonderful experience and together we will call on the Holy Spirit to fill every one of us to the very brim!

We have 3-4 Clergy strong in the spirituality of TLIG, a great program and great accommodations!

Our program will include a visit to the shrines of two Saints from the USA: St. John Nueman and St. Mary Katharine Drexel.


Date: Friday, November 9th our program begins formally with dinner. Sunday, November 11th, noon, program ends.

Cost: $250 dollars including all 5 meals, 2 nights hotel and transport to shrines.

Our Retreat will include a visit to St. John Nuemann's Shrine.

St. John Nuemann
Almost immediately devout souls were drawn to his grave. They came from far and near. More than a few were claiming extraordinary miracles of grace. It was as though John Neumann, now dead, continued his works of mercy among his people. For decades this unsolicited devotion continued. Finally after many years and many incontrovertible miracles worked through the intercession of this holy man, his Cause was introduced in Rome. In 1921 Pope Benedict XV saw fit to have John Neumann declared "Venerable."

The procession of the faithful continued and in 1963 Pope Paul VI declared him "Blessed" John Neumann. Bus loads of pilgrims came from different parishes throughout the year to pray to Saint John. Finally the long expected happened in Rome on 1977. Pope Paul VI declared John Neumann a Saint in heaven.

Now pilgrims come from all over the world. Pope John Paul II made it a point to visit the Shrine when he came to Philadelphia to attend the Eucharistic Congress.

And a Visit to The Shrine of St. Mary Katharine Drexel.

Pope Proclaims Katharine a Saint!

The journey to Canonization came to fruition on October 1, 2000. At that time Pope John Paul II in Saint Peter's Square, Vatican City, at the solemn celebration of Mass, proclaimed Mother Katharine Drexel, "Saint Katharine Drexel!" The process of canonization for Katharine was begun by John Cardinal Krol who officially introduced her Cause in Rome in December 1964.

On January 26, 1987, Mother Katharine was declared Venerable.

The Vatican concluded that Robert Gutherman was miraculously cured of deafness in 1974, upon his family's having prayed solely to Mother Katharine.

Katharine's beatification took place on November 20, 1988.

October 1, 2000 saw the culmination of this journey after several boards investigated the second healing of Amanda (Amy) Wall and concluded that her cure from nerve deafness was truly miraculous.
