Spreading the Good Word

Greetings brothers and sisters last night I attended street evangelization and although much of the night turned out to be confused looks and no thanks or sarcasm there were others that accepted our worship most importantly this older lady that I approached whom my group had a long conversation with. She had been having dinner with her friend for his birthday and he is in his third battle of cancer and will not be around very long. She is a catholic and was confused why he didn’t believe in God. Although faithful she wasn’t for sure about heaven and hell so my group started talking to her about what has been said about after life and really opened her eyes after a wonderful talk we had to remind her we were there to pray if she would still like to and as we were about to a gentleman she was friends with approached us and he had many intentions he would like to pray for so we all held hands in a circle and after prayer she was so blessed she had felt electricity throughout her.  She hugged us all and was amazed that after numerous counts of trying to find a parking spot and losing her keys in her purse that us three young adults were going around on a Saturday night to pray and that God had blessed us with the gift of meeting and touching her life. This account opened my eyes like never before my heart was completely opened and my eyes filled with tears, and I now understand the meaning of spreading the good word. God bless you all.

They call it Happy Valley

Penn State University and the surrounding town of State College, PA will always hold a special place in my heart.  God shaped my life dramatically during the four years I spent at college there, and several weekends ago when I went back to visit April 11-13, He changed my life yet again with another major moment that shot right to the heart of my discerning becoming a Catholic priest.
