Site featured on "The SaintCast"!

April 14, 2008

I was very proud to have this site featured on the SaintCast show.  The SaintCast www.saintcast.org is a podcast on the growing SQPN  family of shows and hosted by Dr. Paul Camarata, the show contains interviews, sound-seeing tours, news, and information that help bring the Saints alive into your daily life.  Well researched and presented in a fun and faithful manner, the show offers chat about Saints’ lives, histories, art, Patron Saints, Saints of the Day, current saint news, upcoming feast days, and much more!

Look for the March 4th show (SaintCast #89) to hear Dr. Camarata's wonderful comments about this site and the cause and I pray you support his wonderful work at SaintCast.

Book review...

January 30, 2008

Servant of God Pope John Paul II had a very strong devotion to Mary, and in my opinion, did more to foster devotion to her than any other Pope in history.

I just finished reading a wonderful book that I highly reccomend: the Complete Rosary by William G. Storey.

Now, I consider myself to be a devotee of the rosary which I pray daily... but this book was truly an education on the subject. From the history and development of the prayers to new ways to recite the rosary alone and in groups. For those of who out there who struggle to fully appreciate the wonder that is devotion to Christ through Mary this book will truly be a blessing.

Pope John Paul's Rosariun Virginis Mariae introduces a new program for the rosary that enhances the way we pray it and this book includes all of those methods offered in the encyclical letter as well as pictures, other Marian hymns and prayers, and all twenty mysteries.

I pray that you all purchase this great book and grow in your devotion to Christ.

If you are interested in purchasing the book at Amazon.com, click here.

New forum created....

January 17, 2008

I just made a online discussion forum for JPII prayer group members: http://johnpaulii.freeforums.org/index.php

Check it out and sign up if you'd like... I know some people enjoy being able to interact with other people this way.  I pray it helps groups organize themselves.

Going to be away for a bit....

I'm having shoulder surgery on Feb 11th, so I won't be able to respond to any emails after that for a week or two. 

John Paul pray for us.
