Tending the Flame of Love - 6 Day Retreat, Michelle Vass


With a combination of scripture and writings from the mystics, this retreat seeks to assist in kindling the fire of divine love within our hearts. No matter how small or how bright our flame is, we can always allow it a little more space to grow.

Retreat Program

Day 1  The Fire of Love

Love him so fiercely that you could die for him... without ever being extinguished as a living flame...you become full of the fire of love.. 
Mechthild of Magdeburg

Day 2  A Living Flame
I have come to bring fire to the earth and how I wish it were already kindled...

The Day will make it clear because it is revealed in fire, and the fire will test the quality of each person's work ... 1 Cor 3:13

Fan into flame the gift of God ... for God did not give us a spirit of timidity, but the Spirit of power and love and self-control...

O living flame of love that tenderly wounds my soul in its deepest center!
