On June 24th 2019, I said “Yes” to Jesus the Bridegroom’s proposal to consecrate my heart and soul to Him by making a private betrothal promise. The waterfall of healing, grace, and pure love He has showered on me this past year is amazing!
I started Hope’s Garden as a means to sharing the beautiful healing truth of Christ the Bridegroom’s deeply personal and intimate spousal love for each and everyone of us.
He is the one, true, eternal Spouse of every soul regardless of your vocation or state in life. He offers His unconditional love and only asks that we reciprocate by opening our wounded hearts to His loving gaze and saying “Yes, let it be done unto me according to Your word.”
I urge you to place any fears, doubts, and disbelief into our Mother Mary’s hands and ask her to walk you to the Heart of your awaiting Bridegroom.
He is singing to each of you… “Come then, my love, my lovely one, come, for see winter is past, the rains are over and gone. The flowers appear on the earth.” The Song of Songs 2:10-11
On Tuesday December 1st, the Hope’s Garden family and Sisterhood of Mary Mystical Rose of God will begin a novena to Christ the Bridegroom through Mary Mother of the Bride. On the 10th day, Friday December 11th, we will consecrate ourselves to Christ the Bridegroom and enthrone Him as King and Spouse of our hearts. Our spiritual advisor, Father Michael Stalla, will lead us in a live streamed Bridegroom prayer service followed by Holy Mass from Saints Cosmas and Damian Church in Twinsburg Ohio.
We will ask the intercession of Our Lady of Guadalupe, Mystical Rose of God, whose feast day is December 12th. Mary is truly our teacher, model, and companion on this journey into the Heart of the Beloved. She is Mother of the Bridegroom and Mother of all of us… His brides.
Please take some time to prayerfully consider joining us for this beautiful and healing novena and consecration. You can find the novena prayer and act of consecration to the Bridegroom on our website as well as in our new book Consecration to Christ the Bridegroom on Amazon.com.
With joyful and hopeful anticipation I am awaiting the coming of the Bridegroom to more and more hearts… healing us and filling us with His Living Water!
Together in His Heart,
