The Apostolate of the Returning King began with The Volumes in 2003, when Anne received the first locutions. Most of us can remember the first Volume we read, whether it was 18 years ago or much more recently, and many people mark it as a turning point in their lives.
Regardless of when or how our individual journey with the Apostolate began, the common theme that runs through all of our stories is the life-changing, deep connection with God and the peace we received through The Volumes.
Some of us may have a daily habit of reading little excerpts from The Volumes. For others, The Volumes may sit on our bookshelves, like an old, reliable friend when we need them. We may return to the messages frequently or simply as needed but they remain the thread that knits us together in this Apostolate.
As we look forward into 2021, we invite you to go on a journey together, as Apostles of the Returning King, to revisit the ten Volumes over the next ten months. We have crafted a reading plan through The Volumes and we plan to read one Volume each month from February to November.
Then, we will gather together monthly for an online Zoom event with Anne, Fr Darragh, and the DFOT team to share our experiences with the messages contained in each Volume. We have outlined the reading plan and the options for participating and you are welcome to join us for as much or as little as you like.
- Let us do the work and send you the readings each day. Sign up above for the daily readings and we will email you the message each day. The daily email will include the daily reading in both text and audio options, so you can read or listen right from the email. The daily readings began on Sunday, February 14th, so sign up today to get started. If you sign up after February 14th, see the first portion of the reading plan below for the messages you’ve missed.
- Read along with your own set of Volumes. You can purchase the full set of Volumes for the discounted rate of $50 / €50 in our bookstore. The Volumes are also available for free in our online library here.
Even if you don’t want to receive the daily emails but plan on reading along, please complete the above form (but select to opt out of the emails) to let us know you are reading along with us and we will email you the reading plan.
Above is a sample of the reading plan you will receive when you sign up. The reading plan begins on Sunday, February 14, 2021 and outlines the readings to do each day. With the exception of Volume One, each daily reading is anywhere from 1-6 pages. We encourage you to set aside 10 minutes a day to read the messages and reflect on it briefly but we know that might not be possible, so the outline is merely a suggestion for what pages to read in a given week. You are welcome to read at your own pace but remember that the gathering will cover the Volumes that we have read over the previous four weeks.
Join us for our monthly gatherings, to be held on the second Saturday of every month from March to November (dates below). There is no cost or fee to participate in these monthly gatherings in the hope that as many of you can participate as possible!
This project has been made possible through the generosity and support of our team of monthly donors. If you would like to donate to help cover the costs of running events like this, there will be an option to make a donation when you sign up for each gathering, which will be done at a later date.
Please note that anyone is welcome to come to these monthly gatherings, even if you are not reading The Volumes along with us!
The first monthly gathering for Volume One will take place on Saturday, March 13, 2021.
