I preached a parish mission in Sulphur, LA. Feb. 15-19th Sat-Wednesday night. Great folks. See pictures below. Lots of great memories of people and they bought a lot of my resources! Today I'm working on ministry matters/working out and getting ready for my Lenten mission in Abbeville next week. ***Watch on EWTN: I discuss my new book: Your Best Lent Ever!

Sat/Sunday Feb. 8/9th we filmed 8 new episodes of Live with Passion! in Houston. The series is entitled "Through him, With him, and In him." The filming went great. You will love the content: One episode on family, another about depression, one about the power of the Bible and so much more. We now have to edit the raw footage and they will go to air the Sunday after Easter in April.
First picture from Friday night: promos. Second picture from Saturday filming.
Saturday Feb. 1st, I participated in a Mass at the Charismatic center in Houston at 8:30 am and then prayed at a planned parenthood abortion clinic. Met many great people dedicated to life who gave up their Saturday morning to be there and pray. Three of them were University of Texas students. Very inspiring!
Sunday we had a Mass for the religious of the diocese at our Cathedral. Pictured: Cardinal DiNardo and the some 1,000 people gathered for Mass. Lots of incense and singing for sure. 1)Cathedral downtown, 2) Cardinal incensing from the back 3) Altar incense 4) Religious and others gathered for worship.

It's official! The executives at EWTN have approved my new series "The Hour of the Crucified" for air. Debut Advent 2020.! (Every first Friday of the month.) I will be airing a Lenten mission Sat 6 pm ET and Sundays of Lent at 5:30 am. Radio: Sundays at 4:30 pm. Another series "The Meaning of Suffering" will air after Lent.
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: email@example.com
