What is a Parish Mission – A Parish Mission is a parish awakening; a time for the entire parish to come together for reflection upon the Word of God, to renew their faith, and to pray with open hearts and hands.

What is a Parish Revival – A Revival is also an awakening of a Parish. A revival (similar to a Mission) consists of Praise & Worship, Preaching, Teaching and Celebration. Parish Revivals have deep roots within the Catholic Church and is an outstanding way to Celebrate Who We are and Whose We are; done in a very Inspiring and Charismatic format.

Sessions can be customized to fit popular books and encyclicals, e.g. Rebuilt; Dynamic Catholic; Rediscover Catholicism; Joy of the Gospel; Light of Nations; God Is Love; and many other wonderful Catholic Teachings.


Lent – Give Up Giving Up and UNPLUG!!!

Photobomb Classic!
Photobomb Classic!
I am done with it. It’s almost like those outlandish never kept new years resolutions! No, I am not walking 20 minutes everyday, no I am not eating salad everyday and no I am not getting up 15 minutes early everyday, like I said in my resolutions for 2015. So for Lent, I am Giving Up trying to Give Up something. This year I am doing to DO more.

Why don’t we try something new. Alms giving without conditions. I am have $40.00 in $1.00 bills. I am going to make a commitment to give at least $1.00 every day to someone who is in need, or asks. I am not going to be judgmental, I am just going to give. I ask the Holy Spirit so ‘send someone in need my way, each day. If not, please send them the following day.’ Should I not give one day, I will roll the gift over to the next.

Nine years ago when my wife and I went to Cancun on our honeymoon, I was forced to “Unplug”. There was no wifi at the hotel, nor was I going to pay the outrageous amount for international cell phone rate, and they did not have ‘burner phones’ at that time. I was forced to “Unplug”. No internet, no cell phone, no computer, NO EMAILS… NOTHING! It took me about three days to really and truly ‘unplug’ and stop worrying. Once I reached that point of unplugging, it was an AWESOME feeling. Letting go of worry. For lent, I am going to unplug for a minimum of 15 minutes per day. Cell phone OFF (not in airplane mode), computer OFF, iPad OFF, television OFF. Just my Bible and My Lord. Reading the bible for a minimum of 15 minutes per day for MYSELF, not studying for that nights preaching, but spending QUALITY – UNPLUGGED TIME with my Lord.

If you can give up what you say, then God bless you. I am sorry, I am not that disciplined, so I am doing to give up giving up and I am going to DO. Do something that is going to encourage and increase my Encounter with Christ. Attempting to allow the Lord to edify me, that I might be a better person, strengthened to go forward and proclaim His Word.

It’s not too late to give up on giving up. Join me in doing something MORE that will help you Spiritually this Lent. Let us continue to pray for one another that we might unplug and allow the NEW connection with the Holy Spirit in our lives!

See you in the Desert… and KEEP ON KEEPIN on!

Is this what most Catholics say when they attend Mass?
Is this what most Catholics say when they attend Mass?

Marshawn Lynch, one of the preeminent running backs, perhaps “The BEST” in Professional Football today, more affectionately known as #BeastMode, (I LOVE that nic), attended the annual Superbowl Media Day Press Conference last week.

For those of you who might not know, Mr. Lynch is not affectionate when it comes to speaking with the media. He does not like to do interviews at all. What ever your views on this is irregardless, he just does not trust the media, and in some ways, I cannot blame him.

In typical #BeastMode fashion, he refused to speak with the media, and for five minutes, repeated “I’m here so I won’t get fined.”

In my humble opinion he sounds like a lot of Catholics who “Attend” Mass on Sunday’s. “I’m here so I won’t get Fined”, “I’m here because it’s a Holy Day of OBLIGATION.” “I’m here so I won’t go to hell.” In over 10 years of Catholic ministry, having been blessed to speak and preach in hundreds of Parishes around the U.S. and South America, I can pick these people out in an instant. You can tell from when they get out of their car’s, walk into the Church (five minutes after Mass has started), sit during the homily and Eucharistic Celebration, in a manner VERY similar to Marshawn, and then LEAVE early prior to the end of Mass.

I am NOT in anyway beating up or talking bad about Mr. Lynch. As a matter of fact, I admire him for speaking (or not speaking in this case) is mind. He is not wanting to waist people’s time, yet the media continue to FEED off this. His ON the field work says it all as well as his off the field work in the community of Seattle and his hometown of Oakland, SPEAKS VOLUMES, but no one is reporting about that!

Now back to us #Catholics. They come in Late, just in time to hear the Gospel being read (in the nick of time for it… the Mass ‘to count’) then they sit, stone faced and immobilized until the sign of peace and then they do what I call… “the Holy Flip-off” by flipping you the Peace Sign (because they don’t want to look bad), then after communion, the RUN OUT the SIDE door… saying “I’m just here because it’s an OBLIGATION”.

Just because I am married, does not mean that I am OBLIGATED to come home to my wife. I come home to my wife because I LOVE her and I want to spend as much time with her as I possibly can… because we are in “Relationship” together. Similarly we should not run to Catholic Mass as if it is an OBLIGATION. We should be their because we are in “Relationship” with our Lord. Because He is everything and we can do nothing without Him.

Let us emulate the On-Field performance of #BeastMode and let us go out and SHARE that RELATIONSHIP with others, and lets stop looking like, “I’m here so I won’t get fined.”

Blessings and Peace to you and yours and enjoy this (as I call it) extra (unholy) day of Obligation… Big Game Sunday… (can’t say the coined name or I will get fined!)
