Ormond Beach mission Jan. 27-Feb. 1st: I preached about the Holy Spirit Wed. night, the largest crowd of the mission. We all received grace! It was an unforgettable night. The people were open, humble and hungry. I loved meeting them all and pray for these folks as we prepare for Lent. Now for a few days of visiting my sisters and hitting the beach. I fly back to warming Houston on Saturday, just in time for the Sun to dawn there. They have had a week of miserable weather while the weather here couldn't have been better. I love being a missionary and the joy I feel can't be bought...

Sunday Jan 22nd, I presided at Mass to conclude a confirmation retreat for 100 Juniors in High School and their parents. (300 or so total gathered) The retreat was held at Stoney Creek Ranch retreat center about 70 miles West of here. Because of two of my benefactors, I was able to give each candidate a Picture Bible (on the Word of God Sunday.) I shared about my confirmation experience in my homily and helped them to understand who the Holy Spirit is. Here are some pictures: Confirmation students in front. Parents in back. Let us pray for our youth. As I said in my homily, 3/4 to 4/5th of the young people will leave the church for various reasons: College, work, political differences, parents and because they struggle with knowing God. We pray the Holy Spirit will touch them and revolutionize their lives...
