Friends, if you are in the Chicago area tomorrow (Tuesday, July 30), I will be speaking at Immaculate Conception parish, sharing my testimony about God’s transformative healing in my life, and about the path to discerning a priestly vocation; giving witness to the innumerable blessings that the Lord has given me through the intercession of Our Lady of Medjugorje. We will begin at 7:30 pm.
The second video here — with the Franciscan sister — features Sister Alicia Torres, an anointed soul who I knew some years ago (when she was still a lay person) in Chicago during my undergraduate years. We were both active in pro-life activism on our campuses.
“I stand a new creation baptized in blood and fire.”
Powerful new song from Hillsong United.
“Dear children, with a motherly love I am imploring you to give me the gift of your hearts, so I can present them to my Son and free you – free you from all the evil enslaving and distancing you all the more from the only Good – my Son – from everything which is leading you on the wrong way and is taking peace away from you. I desire to lead you to the freedom of the promise of my Son, because I desire for God’s will to be fulfilled completely here; and that through reconciliation with the Heavenly Father, through fasting and prayer, apostles of God’s love may be born – apostles who will freely, and with love, spread the love of God to all my children – apostles who will spread the love of the trust in the Heavenly Father and who will keep opening the gates of Heaven. Dear children, extend the joy of love and support to your shepherds, just as my Son has asked them to extend it to you. Thank you.”
