Tuesday: I'm at our residence in Houston. Hot sunny weather continues. I pray you were inspired by my episode: Be Lifted Up! God is the lifter of our heads. One day he will raise us from death. I remember you at Mass this morning as I live my religious life in community and prayer. (7:45 am prayer, 8 am Mass) I'm studying and working on a talk. I will work out later today.
Next series: I am reading about trusting God as well as the Splendor of truth as I prepare for my filming in late September. I wrote a script Wednesday about the sovereignty of God. I wrote one Thursday about trusting in God. Saturday: Prayer. I am writing about "Lectio Divina" and getting more out of the Bible by listening. Ancient practice from the 3rd century. I have been negative for Covid since Wednesday...Feeling much better and I thank you for your prayers and good wishes. I am strong and healthy again, Fr. C

July 14-16th: The Full Gospel conference in Anaheim CA. ended after lunch with Q and A. I was asked many questions. I thanked everyone for their love and hospitality and all prayed a blessing over me. What a graced moment for us all. I have fond memories of the folks at Full Gospel Businessmen International Fellowship! (Although I caught Co-Vid there!) I'm writing an article which will appear in their "Voice" magazine about my witness.
I also gave two talks Friday: One on "Receive the Holy Spirit: to about 400 men. The other was my witness to the large assembly Friday night (1000). The Holy Spirit was moving and people were touched. Here are multiple pictures. First: Men's conference, then general assembly:
This is where I contacted Covid at this conference. Make sure you wear a mask! I'm better now.

The filming of four episodes couldn't have gone better Tuesday, Thursday and Friday. (June 28, 30 and July 1st) The filming for my new series: Inexplicable Grace (click on this for episode descriptions) is now complete. 8 new episodes that will air debuting in September. Friday I filmed four more new episodes for the upcoming Lent Year A (2023). It's a workout, but worth it. I rejoice in the strength and grace God gave me to do the filming. My producer and I will be editing these episodes in the coming months.
