Wednesday: Today a sad day in the history of our nation. Besides the impeachment trial, the 47th anniversary of the legalization of abortion in the US. Over these 47 years some 50 million babies have been aborted. This is a holocaust. A whole generation of youth have been wiped out. I cannot express in words how aghast I am about this. May God have mercy on our human race for these atrocities. Please pray that this law be overturned. Pray that pregnant mothers bring their babies to birth. Pray also for those who have committed this sin (women and men) and have deep sorrow: experience redemption and healing from God. Lord Have Mercy! Christ Have Mercy! Lord Have Mercy!
Sunny and cold in Miami. (39 degrees this morning!) I am here for a mission at St. Richard's church in Palmetto Bay (South Miami.) I preached the five Masses on Sat/Sun. Great folks and bought lots of my resources. Monday over 100 at am Mass and over 250 pm. About the same Tuesday. Lots of confessions. Now: 8 am Mass and 7 pm services. I was here for a mission 29 years ago, my first year of priesthood. Here are some photos from one of the Masses on Sunday. Nice church layout and folks. I fly back to Houston on Thursday.

Saturday morning I drove (1/2 hour) to St. Laurence Church and gave a prayer breakfast talk about Surrendering to God who loves us. The talk was for the staff of 150! who minister there. I met so many great people who are making a difference. The talk went super and they bought a lot of my books.

This is the Limpias crucifix in our retreat center chapels. What is different about these crucifixes are that Jesus' side has not been pierced. His eyes are still open because he is still alive and suffering. His sufferings are caught in time and eternity so that we can lay our burdens and guilt down at the foot of his cross. On Fridays especially we remember Jesus' sufferings for us. May his Passion be always in our hearts!
Sundays at 1 pm ET and 10 am PT. Also: TBN 7 am ET.
My precious "Pen Pals" write those who are incarcerated to encourage and inspire them. It is Jesus who is our inspiration: "I was in prison and you visited me" (Mt. 25:37). If you would like to participate in this wonderful writing ministry: Email Nancy Firmin at: firstname.lastname@example.org
