Friday April 17th: I'm in Houston. I had a blessed day of recollection for many parish ministers on Wed. We had over 90 people participate. Today I am catching up on mail and other matters/working out. After a lot of rain last night, the Sun has returned. I fly to Michigan next Friday for two missions.
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!
***Our Holy Cross Province puts out a Passionist Magazine. My preaching in Naples made the cover and there is an article where I talk about this special year of consecrated life inside. Enjoy. PASSIONISTS

Lenten Missions: Mission accomplished in Naples FL. at St. Agnes Church. (Fourth week of Lent) Wow. The final night there was some 850 people there! What a celebration of the Holy Spirit. Thunderous choir. Loved it. So many people from so many places. Such encouragement and many became my partners for television. God bless these people as we near Holy Week and Easter. I head to Ft. Meyers today for another treatment from my eye doctor. I still have many floaters and need them to be lasered still. I will drive to New Smyrna Beach on Friday to be with my sister for a week. I will then drive back to Houston during Holy Week.
Early March, I preached a mission in Lake Charles Louisiana. (March 1-3) Pics below. The people came out in great numbers. Monday night we have 500 people there! Tuesday night we were all filled with the Holy Spirit. It was such a blessing seeing many of my friends and partners in Lake Charles again. I look forward to my return the second week of Lent, next year.
A blessed Lent to you. Lent is a season of grace. May you make the changes you need to in your life with God's help. Strive for significance, not necessarily success. See more of my reflections at LENT. Pictures of my mission below.
Mission in Baton Rouge: (Feb. 21-15) Unforgettable! So many people. So gracious and enthusiastic. They all touched my life. We were all filled with the Holy Spirit the final night.
Here are some pictures from B.R. About 700 present Monday night!
