Fr Kubicki recently had a book published entitled A Heart on Fire:  Rediscovering Devotion to the Sacred Heart of Jesus.  He keeps a journal of his travels and ministry on his blog entitled “Offer It Up“.

If you won’t be able to attend the retreat sessions, you can get a taste of Fr Kubicki’s teaching on the Sacred Heart of Jesus by listening to his presentation at a recent webinar hosted by Ave Maria Press.
