giving my card to non-catholics

April 9, 2022

We had a meeting called "Carmichael Neighborhood Meeting" as we have had in the past until covid stopped them.

At the meeting were the mayor-pro-tem, a city councilwoman, her father, and a vice president of the Sierra Vista planning commission.

My pastor Father Greg was there as were the principal and my sister-in-law.

I introduced myself as the new Grand Knight of our council and the father of the councilwoman introduced himself to me.

I asked him if he was catholic.  He said he grew up Catholic but now he is a Baptist Minister.

I said, "That is wonderful.   Here is my card, and if you get a chance, please listen to the talks on the back of my card." He said he would.

Every non-Catholic I have given that card to has listened to the talks and then sent me an email saying that now they want to be Catholic.

The Happiest People Go To Church

November 21, 2019

I know most of us go out into the streets to evangelize. However, when there is not a lot of walking traffic in your city, you have to evangelize where you can. I work at a place where there are many desks side by side. I had a young lady sit next to me one day and I asked her if she had a church she attends. She said she was from the Philippines and was Catholic. I asked her if she had gone to St. Andrew yet (a nearby church). She said no, that her husband was in the military and worked on post (we have an Army base in our city). I told her that the happiest people who lived the longest had one thing in common around the world. They all went to church weekly. I gave her my card and emailed her about the mercy of God. This past Sunday, she showed up and said she was going to go to Confession. First time in around 11 years. She and her husband went to Confession!!!

Praised be Jesus Christ! You never know when an opportunity will arrive to help someone get right with God.


Forgiveness and Healing

October 22, 2019

I was asked by the office manager of St. Christopher to have an evangelization booth at the Parish Festival on October 12. We arrived at about 2:30, set up, and spoke to many people and handed out over 150 Miraculous Medals and about 100 rosaries. We also gave out many of our MP3 cards for them to listen to the 27 talks we have on them.

But one special lady came by named Mariann. She said, “Can you pray for me?” Of course, we said. Ed and Terry got up and went to the outside of the booth and Ed asked if she had any unforgiveness in her heart for anyone. She said yes. Ed asked, “Can you totally forgive this person because otherwise the healing of your body may be blocked. She shared that her mother was killed by her sister, and it was very hard to forgive her. We spoke more and she finally said, “I have to let God take care of this for me. I forgive her and will no longer carry it with me”. Ed asked if she had any pride in her – anything that took the place of God. She answered “No”. So Ed and Terry laid hands on here and asked the Holy Spirit to come. After we prayed, her husband was standing next to her and she exclaimed to him. “I can see clearly way over there!! She told us she had blurred vision and could not see far distance but now she can! Ed told her there is POWER in the name of Jesus!”

Another lady came by named Ida and she had a sore upper back and shoulder area. We laid hand on her and asked her the qualifying questions and her pain vanished. Please pray for Mariann and Ida that the Lord will continue to bless them with his healing graces. The pastor came by and gave us dinner tickets for free. He thanked us profusely for coming with all our materials and helping grow their parish. Overall, a very successful day.

Praised be Jesus Christ! God desperately wants to heal us, but so many hold onto hurts from the past and block that healing. Let’s look at today’s healing as an example of what is possible if we’d only forgive others as Jesus has forgiven us.
