Are D.U.M.B.s, the coronavirus, and civil rights concerns all related in society today? What is the foundation of the legal system in America today? Are there aliens, and why is so much alien activity reported around deep underground military bases?
These questions and more are considered in today's podcast. Sound far-fetched or irrelevant to your day? It may be more pertinent than we can comprehend. Considering these things just may be the single-most important thing that you will do today and the single-most important thing we can understand as a nation and as a world of human beings all made beautifully for a glorious society called the Kingdom of God.

What’s in a name? Attached to your name is your reputation, your character, your personality, your past, present, and future. Naming plays an important role throughout salvation history, especially, in the case of the patriarchs called to enter into a holy covenant with God. There is also the naming that happens at baptism, and the naming of an entire people like the Samaritans or other groups of people who are, in fact, all part of the one human race called to be one family in Christ, the God-Man. In Christ's Name an everlasting marriage covenant has been established and in this eternal covenant, all of us have become children, heirs, brothers and sisters of the same royal family.
With racial discrimination and racial tensions breaking into occasions of violence, destruction, chaos, murder, and theft, it is high time that we all get together to start acting according to our dignity as members of a royal family in Christ Jesus. And that means everybody--black, white, rich or poor, bound or free. We are all called into the freedom of life regulated by the 10 Commandments, a life that is like a wellspring of hope springing up inside each one of us who prays.
Is there a problem in your life that seems unsolvable? Do you feel broken? Most of us in one way or another do. It seems to be part of life. Why is that anyway? We keep striving for wholeness, but we just keep getting brokenness. What’s going on with that anyway?
John 10:10 records the words of the Divine Master, who has told us: “I came that you may have life, and have it more abundantly.” Okay, Lord, I accept this as divine revelation, but help us to piece it together with all the suffering and brokenness we experience in this world. What can you really mean by this?
Today, the answer came to me through insects, wild mushrooms, scripture bits, and a song. I hope you will join with me in this noon-day reflection on time and eternity. (Just click above to listen to today's podcast.)

“How good and pleasant it is when brothers [and sisters] live together in unity!”

Are you experiencing discord, division, arguments, temptations to violence, crime, or to moral, financial, or physical dissolution? You need to listen today to hear more about how to break demonic strongholds in your life! It is not difficult. There are simple steps you can take, and one of them is to walk the perimeter of your property --whether you own it or rent it-- and sprinkle blessed (exorcised) salt while praying the prayer of consecration of your property given at the end of this podcast and also linked below. You will also hear today about the mysterious spiritual warfare the Infant King and Lord undertook while sojourning with the Holy Family in Egypt during his infancy.

Today, I want to introduce you to a world-wide family of religious congregations and secular institutes all established with one mission in mind: bringing Jesus Christ the Divine Master—Way, Truth and Life—to the whole world. I am talking about the Pauline Family founded by Blessed James Alberione beginning on August 20, 1914 – on this day exactly 106 years ago. That was the founding of the Society of St. Paul, a group of priests ordained to preach the Gospel with the media of mass communication—unlike any priestly congregation that had ever been founded before. It was unique, radical, visionary. After this foundational congregation was formed, other congregations and secular institutes followed: the Daughters of St. Paul, the Pauline Cooperators, the Pious Disciples of the Divine Master, the Good Shepherd Sisters, the Sisters of Mary, Queen of Apostles, the Annunciationists, the Gabrielites, the Institute of Jesus the Priest for parish priests, and finally, last but not least, the Holy Family Institute for married persons, widows, and widowers.
In this impressive array of vocational offerings, there is truly something for everyone, for every walk of life, so that every person in every vocation may have the opportunity to crown his or her baptismal promises with consecration and specific vows that bind them more closely to Christ and His Church and elevate every act of daily life to an act of worship, an act of religion, an act of thanksgiving and praise to the Eternal Father, Son and Spirit, the Divine I AM from whom each one of us has life, individuality, purpose, refreshment, happiness, and eternal life if we so choose it.
Check out PaulineFamily.com for more information. You can also reach out to me at firstname.lastname@example.org. I look forward to hearing from you! Be sure to like and share this podcast with someone you know who is searching for a better Way to live.
Evangelization is the act of bringing the Eternal Word Made Flesh, Jesus Christ, into the world wherever we are, into all the spheres of our personal influence. It is announcing the Good News of the Kingdom of God not only in word but primarily in action, living the Gospel and healing our world by doing so. Every act of evangelization echoes the unspeakable moment of the Annunciation, when the Archangel Gabriel announced to Mary that she would conceive a Son by a mysterious encounter with the Spirit of the Living God, and bring forth into the world that Inspired Word Made Flesh, that long-awaited מָשִׁיחַ— Messiah and Savior— who saves the visible world by bringing it into communion with the invisible Divine Godhead.
Today’s topic is a deep and complex one: it is a mystical, psychological, and material reality known as human marriage and family. In our world today and in every age, the importance of the Christian call to marriage and family life is inestimable.
So, how do Christian families--married couples and their children--announce the Kingdom of God? Tune into today's podcast to find out.
Today's topic is friendship. You can't get to heaven without it! What is friendship and what is it not? Tune in to hear about a family whose friendly ways of loving each other are certainly worth emulating. Let's love someone to heaven today!

Today we dive into the biblical foundations of devotion to the Sacred Heart of Jesus, which was defined by the Lord Himself in mystical conversations granted to St. Margaret Mary Alacoque in June of 1675 during the octave of the Feast of the Blessed Sacrament.
We also take a look at what is happening in various communities across our great nation: riots and mobs throwing rocks. Tune in to hear why this will never be the Way to solve anything in our country. If you are a young person who thinks the BLM riots might be just the greatest act of social justice this country has seen, please tune in and let's chat too. You can reach me anytime at EvangelNation on Facebook. Just look us up and send me a message.
To Sr. Margaret Mary, Jesus showed his Sacred Heart all aflame, and said, "Behold the Heart which has so loved men that it has spared nothing, even to exhausting and consuming Itself, in order to testify to Its love. In return, I receive from the greater part only ingratitude, by their irreverence and sacrilege, and by the coldness and contempt they have for Me in this sacrament of love. And what is most painful to Me is that they are hearts consecrated to Me."

The beatific vision is the end for which we all are created. It is the goal of our lives! When we make it to those heavenly shores and see God face to face, then a lifetime of trial, uncertainty, and separation from God will dissolve into an ocean of happiness. We will experience the complete fulfillment of all our deepest longings for loving and being loved and for the actualization of all our personal potential. We will be set free for loving and being loved.
But if we are created for happiness, why are we often so miserable in this life?
Can we not enter into God’s heavenly kingdom of heavenly happiness here and now? Did not Jesus Christ, in fact, tell one of his young interlocutors that, on account of his mindset, he was “not far from the kingdom of God”? (See Mark 12:34.)
Is it possible to experience a taste of the beatific vision on this side of the veil? Tune into today's podcast to consider this question more fully with me. And don't forget to like (if you do), share, and pass on the Good News of Evangelination with everyone you meet. In this way, you can become an evangelizer too.

In this episode, we take a hard look at the fear and confusion many of us have felt at one time or another during this coronavirus pandemic.
Are you drowning in uncertainties about where your life is going? Do you daily feel anxious about the big picture of what is happening and whether things will ever be “normal” again? Do you feel like your hopes and dreams for the future have evaporated? That everything you have been working toward is suddenly no longer there, whether that is a top university you expected to enter, or competing in the Olympics, getting promoted in a company that is no longer functioning in person, or maybe traveling the world or taking the world by storm on a stage? Let’s admit it. A lot has changed in the last two or three months in our country and in our world, but I still believe in the best and brightest future of our country, and our world...and there is an important reason why! Tune in to find out about the best and brightest future planned for YOU.
