Father's Day - 2022-06-19

July 10, 2022

“Male and female, He made them.” We offer both the knowledge and opportunity to pray the Rosary, which is a sure means to grow closer to Jesus Christ, Our Lord.

  • The evangelist wished a Happy Father’s Day to the many men who were accompanied by families on this US holiday. Most smiled and said thank you, but there were a couple of odd expressions, too. God, strengthen fathers and imbue them with the desire and ability to lead and protect their families.
  • Repeat visitor “Jax” came to ask for another Rosary. He said he had recently discovered that he is colorblind and that, although he had gotten several Rosaries from us in the past, he hadn’t known they were pink. This time, he carefully picked out a tan and brown one.
  • “Uwe” stopped for a moment, commenting on the sunshine we were (finally) experiencing again. When asked how he was doing, he replied that he was very well but also that he always makes it a point to look on the bright side. Anytime he was tempted to complain, he said, he soon realized that someone was worse off.  He acknowledged that many people were suffering, and that it wasn’t always their fault. E. Lucy agreed that bad things can happen seemingly at random, but that God can always bring a greater good out of them. “Sometimes,” Uwe hedged. “He does,” e. Lucy assured him. Uwe didn’t seem to agree, but left it at that and took his leave.
  • “Cole” came by, after our not seeing him for months upon months. He was wearing new clothes (and a hat?). He still talks heartily, but never quite makes sense. May God bless and heal him!
  • “John” the parking lot attendant tried to stop by several times. Within moments, however, he was always called away to service another parking lot machine. He seemed to be finally getting over his last bout of a bad bug. Thank you for your prayers!
  • A woman stopped for a Rosary. She told the evangelist that she has a friend who is a believer, and a Catholic. E. Lucy explained the benefits of trying the Rosary devotion, even if all she had were questions. The woman also accepted a copy of the one-page kerygma and the encouragement to take a moment to read it.
  • Two college students stopped by. They were Catholic and already in the habit of praying the Rosary together daily. They wanted Rosaries to give away. E. Lucy let them each have one and demonstrated how she introduces the devotion to people, especially those suspicious of Catholicism.
  • A dad and small child, 3-4 years old, stopped so the boy could get a Rosary.
  • An older Catholic couple stopped briefly to encourage us. The man pulled a thumb-ring Rosary out of his pocket. During the session, two other men also pulled out Rosaries to show the evangelist. Amazing, the power of Rosary-praying men!
  • Yesterday marked the interment of our fellow street evangelist Gary Novotny, who died of the pandemic virus last fall. Eternal rest grant unto him, O Lord, and let Perpetual Light shine upon him. May his soul and the souls of all the faithful departed, through Your Mercy, O Lord, rest in peace. Amen. Please also keep his widow, Mary, in your prayers?
  • Altogether, the evangelist gave away about 20 Rosaries and its pamphlet, as well as 1-2 copies of the kerygma.

Please pray for us again today? Ask God to send people to us with hearts prepared to perceive their need for Our Savior Jesus Christ and His Holy Catholic Church, and that much good fruit for His Kingdom comes of today’s efforts.


Fatherhood is regaining some respect in our culture at last, thank God! And thank you again for your prayers and other support for this apostolate. In turn, may God protect and greatly bless you and all those you love!
