On Friday, June 13th, Padre Martín celebrated a Holy Mass with a Benediction and Healing Service. The healing portion lasted well into the night as the people lined up along the altar to have Padre Martín pray over them individually or as families. It was an amazing, holy event.
The visit to St. Monica Parish ended with a Couples Mini-Retreat on Saturday morning, June 14th. Padre Martín began with a talk that covered many things from how to better love, cherish, and value each other to how Satan tries his best to attack and destroy the family. He emphasized that we need to arm ourselves against these attacks by praying together often, both as couples and as families.
Padre Martín Scott visited several parishes in Maryland from March 22nd to March 27th, 2014. He started his visit with a day-long retreat conducted in Spanish at the Mother of God Community in Gaithersburg. Following this inspirational event, he conducted healing Masses at local parishes.
The healing Masses began at the Shrine of St. Jude in Rockville on March 24th. The following night Padre Martín was hosted by Our Lady Help of Christians in Waldorf. On Wednesday, March 26th a healing Mass was held at Jesus the Good Shepherd in Owings. He was then blessed to be at St. John the Evangelist in Silver Spring on March 27th. Padre's final event for this trip was a healing Mass at The Shrine of the Sacred Heart in Washington, DC.
As is customary for Padre Martin's healing Mass and services, the sacrament of reconciliation was offered in the hour before the Mass. Padre Martín always emphasizes that Jesus is the healer of body and soul, and an honest confession is the beginning of the healing process.
