Day 34: Thank you to Our Lady of the Lakes Parish and the courageous volunteers

Winston Churchill, the Prime Minister of England and someone who had to repeat the 8th grade three times for failing English, said just these three words when he was asked to give the commencement speech at Oxford: “Never give up!” I repeat more words from Winston Churchill: “Never give in, never give in, never, never, …

Day 27: Thanks to Elk County Right to Life Group, Triumph of the Holy Cross Parish, and our courageous volunteers

God speaks to us in funny ways sometimes.  Maybe even through fortune cookies. I’m uncomfortable going downtown to witness to life and pray at pp.  I watch the news and see all the crazy thing going on.  Sometimes I even feel a twinge of fear. I’ve come to realize that fear is normal.  It’s how …

Day 20: Thank you Our Lady of Mount Carmel Parish and the prayer volunteers

“We have worked hard all night and have caught nothing, but at your command…” (Luke 5:5) All the signs seem to be saying don’t do it, why bother, and yet we put out into the deep. We are only at the halfway point of our Fall Campaign and may not feel like we have been …

Day 13: Thank you Christ the Divine Shepherd, St. Agnes and Mary, Mother of God Parishes

Almost every time I am outside the clinic, someone will say, “Don’t get discouraged, we are planting seeds.”  Every smile, every greeting, every car or passerby that sees us, every card handed out, every prayer that is offered up is a seed. Our work in HIS vineyard is to plant the seeds.  Plant the seeds …

Day 6: Thanks to St. Maria Goretti and Our Lady of the Angels Parishes

Are you at crossroad on which way to turn? The world is screaming “Go this way, take the easy way. Why do you care? Don’t make waves. What will people think of you? Sleep in, parking downtown is a hassle. You’ll be more comfortable at home. Somebody else will do it.” No doubt, their smooth …

Day 34: Thanks to Guardian Angels and Our Lady of Mt. Carmel Parishes

Gratitude. What a wonderful virtue.  Its effect is great, it costs nothing, yet it is offered too infrequently. As we come to the final week of the Spring Campaign, I don’t want to miss this opportunity to say “Thanks.”  So many of you have inspired me and impressed me with your perseverance and commitment.  You …

Day 25: Thanks to St. Paul of the Cross, Christ Our Savior and Archangel Gabriel Parishes

That was on Instagram; it took only an instant to read.  But the meaning and question that it imposes stands firm and demands an answer. Really?  You would have defied the growing Nazi intimidation?  Our Jewish brothers and sisters had no voice that anyone would give attention. They were human beings.  Although the pro-abortion side decries the …

Day 20: Thanks to St. Joseph the Worker Parish and the faithful

Sacrifice is not easy “If any man would come after me, let him deny himself, take up his cross and follow me.” Matthew 16:24 “There is a big difference between following Christ when this does not require a great deal from us, and identifying ourselves totally with him through the tribulations, great and small, of …
