I'm back in Houston after a safe on time flight from LaGuardia, NY. I just concluded a mission in Whitestone (Queens) N.Y. Wow, people came from Long Island, Staten Island, The Bronx, Brooklyn and other places. What a gathering of worship and praise. The final night, we were all filled with the Holy Spirit of Pentecost. Many books sold. The people overwhelmed me with their kindness and hundreds of pictures were taken. It was a joy to meet these folks, many of whom I'd met before. I hold you all in my heart. See you in September in Belle Harbor at St. Francis de Sales.
TV viewers: If you become a partner we'll send you a prayer card and book. Help me reach out around the world with the Gospel! (If you would like the beautiful print of the crucifixion, just make a donation and tell me you would like the print in the misc. instructions, or call and tell my representative (844-FATHERC) that you would like to donate.) Thank you!
May 2-5th: I preached a mission in Maple Grove, Michigan.
I concluded the mission Tuesday night with a comfortably full church. We all were "refilled" with the Holy Spirit. Reception lasted a good long time. Good book sales. I'll never forget these enthusiastic folks. I have such fond memories of the people of the last two weeks~ Wow. The people in Bay City and Maple Grove were very generous to my community and bought a lot of books. I also picked up numerous new partners for my TV ministry.
Sunday night was a magical night. Crowded. People in the choir loft. People came from Bay City, Detroit, Flint and all the surrounding areas such as St. Charles and Cheasaning. Sunday night pic:
Monday night, same crowd. People spirited and listen well. More pictures here: Pictures Now Tues. night Mass of the Holy Spirit at 7 pm All Welcome. This weekend, we heard how Jesus is the vine and we are the branches. He invites us to an organic living relationship. In order to bear fruit and enjoy life we must remain connected. Abiding in Jesus brings Passion. St. Francis de Sales said, "Live Jesus!" The weather in Michigan is rainy and chilly.
We are in the midst of the Easter Season now. 40 days of fasting yields to 50 days of feasting. Read more of my reflections about Resurrection: Rise!
