A blessed Advent to you all! I hope that this Advent season is a time of prayer and reflection as you prepare your heart to celebrate the coming of Christ at Christmas.
As we prepare for Christmas, I would like to suggest a Christmas gift for your family and friends, a gift that will help lead them closer to Jesus and Mary through trust. My bookStepping on the Serpent: The Journey of Trust with Mary is available for $14.95 on www.shopmercy.org. Thank you for your prayers and support of my religious Congregation, the Marian Fathers of the Immaculate Conception, as we spread the message of Divine Mercy and devotion to Mary Immaculate. I pray that our Lord and our Blessed Mother might walk with you along your journey of trust in this world and lead you home to Heaven.
A blessed feast of St. Lucy to you all. I previously posted the audio files to a parish mission I gave in Battle Creek, Michigan. Today and tomorrow I will post the video versions of these talks.
The parish was preparing to go through the “33 Days to Morning Glory” Marian Consecration preparation by my Marian brother Fr. Michael Gaitley. My talks were themed on entrustment to Jesus through Mary.
Part one was entitled “The Journey of Trust with Mary”
Today at the National Shrine of The Divine Mercy, in honor of St. Faustina’s Feast Day, I will be giving a talk on St. Faustina and my new book which will be live streamed on The Divine Mercy (Official) Facebook Page at 11 a.m. ET today. Make sure to share the live stream with your friends!
You will be able to see my homily from the Mass today and pictures from today’s events on TheDivineMercy.org later this evening.
You can order the book at shopmercy.org or by calling 1(800)462-7426.
This past Lent I had the joy of presenting a mission on my upcoming book Stepping on the Serpent: The Journey of Trust with Mary at St. Monica’s Catholic Church in Converse, Texas. We are one week away from the release of the book, and today is the final part of the mission.
In this final part I speak on the Crucifixion of Jesus and how to trust God even in the darkest moments of our lives, just as Mary did at the foot of the Cross.
This past Lent I had the joy of presenting a mission on my upcoming book Stepping on the Serpent: The Journey of Trust with Mary at St. Monica’s Catholic Church in Converse, Texas. In preparation for the official release of the book on Oct. 5, the Feast of St. Faustina Kowalska, every Thursday I will post a presentation from the mission.
In this week’s presentation, I talk about examples of trust from the Gospels – specifically St. Peter and Our Lady.
