Retreat Guide on St. Elizabeth Ann Seton

Dear Friend in Christ,

Why does the Church canonize saints? It doesn’t help them; after all, they are already in heaven. It’s meant to help us!

The saints’ amazing spiritual maturity reminds us of where we are going, and the stories of their spiritual journeys remind us that God’s grace truly can get us there. The saints inspire us. They intercede for us. They accompany us.


In the decades following the Revolutionary War, Mother Seton grew up in New York’s high society as a member of the Episcopalian Church. She was a wife, a mother, a widow, a convert, a teacher, and a foundress.

This Retreat Guide will draw some practical lessons from a few pivotal scenes of her life – four scenes so real and ordinary that they will resonate with every single one of us: Under the Chestnut Tree; Sitting in the Side Pew; Making Ends Meet; Under the Oak Tree.

As always, this Retreat Guide can be watched, listened to, or read – whichever helps you pray better. Check it out now at our website (scroll down the page to find this retreat).

We also have a new Retreat Guide commercial that we would like you to see. Please share this with others to help spread the word about the Retreat Guides and the other resources we have coming soon.

Sincerely in Christ, Fr. John Bartunek, LC
