Book YOURS TODAY!

I am Richard Lane, not only am I the son of NFL Hall of Fame legend Dick “Night Train” Lane, but most importantly I am a lay (non-ordained) Catholic Evangelist in full-time ministry.

For the past 12 years the Lord has blessed me to travel the world, preaching, teaching and sharing the Word of God to millions of people; via Eternal Word Television Network (EWTN), CatholicTV out of Boston, MA., Ave Maria Radio and many other Catholic  and Christian Apostolates around the United States, South America as well as Asia.

Though my Parish Missions, lives have been saved, people have experienced an encounter with the Lord they have never felt prior. Youth and Youth Adults are motivated and excited about these missions! Dead churches have been transformed into LIVING places of Worship!

There is VERY LITTLE planning on your part for a Richard Lane Parish Mission;

  1. Permission from the Pastor
  2. Agree on dates for the Parish Mission
  3. Provide Richard Lane Ministries with a $700.00 non-refundable retainer fee to lock your mission into his schedule, along with a completed engagement agreement
  4. Richard will arrive the Saturday prior to your mission to speak at the Vigil Mass as well as all Sunday Masses to give people a taste of what to expect at the Mission.
  5. Three weeks prior to the mission you will receive a professional, custom PDF flyer for your mission to be placed in your bulletin, website and all social media links.
  6. Richard will take care of his own lodging, air and ground transportation for your mission
  7. Richard would only ask to take up and receive a “Free Will Love Offering” at the end of each nights preaching, for his services.

I would truly be honored to come and lead a Mission at your parish. Here are just a few of the missions;

– “Standing on the Rock of Faith” 

This mission teaches about an Encounter with the LIVING Lord

What is Faith biblically, theologically and personally

How do we as Catholics enter into that personal relationship with Christ

How do we as Catholics express our joy and love for Christ and His Church

How do we invite others IN to experience this encounter

– “From Dust to Glory”

This mission chronicles not only our faith but our existence from creation of dust

How and why God created us/man/human

How we traversed from the initial fall of Grace; out of the bondage of Egypt into the Promised Land

How we continue to traverse this desert experience called life

How we are strengthened through our Emmaus Road experience in seeing God with us

How we are to rejoice in the Pascal Mystery and the Saving Graces of Christ

– “Mercy Mercy Me”

This mission series based upon the year of Mercy is a powerful healing mission

Healing from past hurts and pains in our personal and church lives

How do we first forgive ourselves then begin to forgive others

How we are called to be the Living and Visible sign of the Fathers Mercy upon others

 

Richard Lane Ministries can customize a Parish Mission series for your parish, as well as provide missions for Pentecost, Advent, Lent and Easter.

Please email IMMEDIATELY RichardLaneMinistries@gmail.com for immediate openings and availability for your parish!

May it be done to me according to your word.

 

 

There is POWER in the Word of God.
There is POWER in the Word of God.

There is POWER in the Word of God.

The Mother of God recited these words when the Angel of the Lord spoke them to Her. Her life would never be the same, as She acclaimed Her great Fiat – Yes Lord. I am Your willing servant and I will obey Your Word.

What is the Word of God saying and speaking into your life? The Word of God came down from Heaven, becoming lower than the Angels. The Word of God was given to us in the form of the Eucharist; the Body, Blood Soul and Divinity of Christ. What is the Word saying to you?

“I am the Way, the Truth and the Life.”

“He that is within you is strong that he that is in the world.”

“I have come that you may have LIFE and have it more abundantly.”

The Source and Summit of our Existence.
The Source and Summit of our Existence.

The Word of God does not return to Him void, for He gives us POWER. The POWER to heal, the POWER to Forgive, and the POWER to Love, unconditionally.

We are closer now to celebrating the Birth of the Word of God made flesh. The KING OF KINGS and LORD OF LORDS is coming. Emmanuel – GOD is WITH US.

The Word of God is with us; within each of us that accept Him. By accepting Him into your life, He speaks a NEW BIRTH upon you. The old has been taken away and we live for the Spirit. We live to LOVE, to share and to GIVE that love and forgiveness to others. What is the Word of God speaking into your life?

God is with us.
God is with us.

The Word of God has come into this world to free us; to ransom us from the tyranny of evil. We celebrate the VICTORY won for us on Calvary. Oh COME Oh COME Emmanuel and ransom the captives from the depths of hell. Renew us as we REJOICE. REJOICE in the Word of God that speaks RELEASE in our lives from all that binds us from His Will. Come Oh Key of David and unlock the closed door of our hardened hearts that we might be open to the NEW Life that only the Word of God gives us.

Keep on Keepin’ On!

The Power of the Redwood Tree!

 

 

California Redwood
California Redwood

Building the “Bridge of Mercy”. Construction begins with a solid foundation of Faith. Faith in an invisible God that none have seen, but is evident through the Face of His Son. Calvary is where the journey begins. The pillars of Faith; The Apostles Creed, the Seven Sacraments, The Ten Commandments and The Lord’s Prayer. Does your faith stand on such a foundation? Without a firm foundation, the building that is within us will crumble and not withstand the storms of life that will come.

Have you ever witnessed or seen the California Redwood Trees? Some of the most giant of these trees stand over 275 feet tall, weigh over 2.7 million pounds and average about 100 feet in diameter. How do these Giant behemoth trees grow and withstand storms? It begins with their root system. One would assume their roots are extremely deep but that is not the case. They are only about 5 or 10 feet deep, but the extend up to 100 feet from RedwoodRootthe trunk or base of the tree. They thrive in thick groves, where the roots can intertwine with each other giving the tree its strength. Intertwining, braiding, twisting and coming together becoming strong, working in concert, conjunction with one another to generate massive strength and sustainability.

Picture your faith as the root system within the tree of Mercy which is our Bridge from this life to the Eternal. Our connection from the Finite to the Infinite; from our world to the Eternal Father. We must be rooted in our Faith. We must work in concert with one another as Christians, seeking out with tenderness, understanding and unconditional forgiveness that we might grow together. If one root is weak then the others come to its aid with nourishment of water, sunlight and healing from the others. This is the Bridge of Mercy that leads to the Father’s forgiveness for all mankind.

The specialized water system within the tree transfers water through the roots upward to give it strength and sustainability for its journey toward the Eternal. We also must continue to work tougher, strengthening, lifting up and building up one another; as ONE people of God, all traversing the Bridge of Salvation leading to the Father’s Mercy. That bridge was formed and solidified through Calvary. Christ on the Cross, the precipice of Love, the foundation of renewal and courage in a world filled with storms, trials and tribulations.

RedwoodUpWe look to the power and strength of these great trees given to us from the Father who looks down upon His people with Grace and Unconditional love. Let us continue to strengthen each other with the same love of Calvary. Giving up our lives that others might live, dying to our sinful flesh and living for the Spirit of Love placed within each of us at the moment of our conception. Once we reach that point, then the world shall see not only the power of the Redwood Tree, but the POWER of He who created it; He who is the Creator of all that is, that was and all that WILL come to be!

Keep on Keepin On!

Relationships & Jesus Christ…

 

JesusThe relationships he forms with the people who approach him manifest something entirely unique and unrepeatable. The signs he works, especially in the face of sinners, the poor, the marginalized, the sick, and the suffering, are all meant to teach mercy. Everything in him speaks of mercy. Nothing in him is devoid of compassion. ~Pope Francis

This reminds me of the story of Blind Bartimaeus. Here is a man that has been blind all his life and is begging for his very existence. He hears about this “Jesus” who is able to heal and do extra ordinary things. He merely heard about this Jesus. Next thing you know he hears Jesus actually coming not just near him, but is passing by him. He knows the miracle that is needed in his life and he realizes this might be his only chance at that miracle. He screams out, “Son of David, have mercy upon me!” Jesus, with empathy, hears Bartimaeus Cry and asks him what he wants. “To see”, says the blind man.

Jesus took the time that no one else would, to build a relationship with this man, even if just for a few tender moments of this man’s life. He was healed because of his Faith in God and the relationship formed. Jesus took the time to establish relationships with the poor and downtrodden; those who were looked upon as lower than life. Jesus did not care about the law or tradition, He cared about people and their eternal souls.

Everything of Jesus speaks to the compassionate, loving and merciful nature of the Father. Remember, Jesus is the Face of the Father’s Love and Mercy. Thus we are called; mandated to emulate that same unconditional mercy. Establishing relationships and communications with others, but especially with God Himself. Our relationship with God comes from ‘knowing’ Him intimately as a man knows his wife, intimately.

Jesus2Bartimaeus knew the miracle needed for him to see. Let us pray for that same faith in God, that He might take us from our blindness to the site of NEW life!

“What is this Jubilee Year?”

 

Jubilee Year of Favor
Jubilee Year of Favor

In case you are asking this question, here is the response given by our Holy Father for the World Youth Day scheduled in Krakow, Poland in July 2016. Message is taken from Vatican Information News Service (VIS) 28 September 2015.

“Perhaps some of you are asking: what is this Jubilee Year that is celebrated in the Church? The scriptural text of Leviticus can help us to understand the meaning of a ‘jubilee’ for the people of Israel. Every fifty years they heard the sounding of a trumpet (jobel) calling them (jobil) to celebrate a holy year as a time of reconciliation (jobal) for everyone. During that time they had to renew their good relations with God, with their neighbors and with creation, all in a spirit of gratuitousness. This fostered, among other things, debt forgiveness, special help for those who had fallen into poverty, an improvement in interpersonal relations and the freeing of slaves.

Jesus Christ came to proclaim and bring about the Lord’s everlasting time of grace. He brought good news to the poor, freedom to prisoners, sight to the blind and freedom to the oppressed. In Jesus, and particularly in his Paschal Mystery, the deeper meaning of the jubilee is fully realized. When the Church proclaims a jubilee in the name of Christ, we are all invited to experience a wonderful time of grace. The Church must offer abundant signs of God’s presence and closeness, and reawaken in people’s hearts the ability to look to the essentials. In particular, this Holy Year of Mercy is ‘a time for the Church to rediscover the meaning of the mission entrusted to her by the Lord on the day of Easter: to be a sign and an instrument of the Father’s mercy’.”

This is a time of reconciliation for everyone. A time of reflection and introspection. Taking a deeper look at ‘Who we are and Whose we are’. Just as the two men walked along the Emmaus Road, many of us traverse the same road in this world failing to recognize Jesus in our midst. They did at least make the “Invitation” for Him to join them. They saw Him in the breaking of the bread and then He disappeared from them. We recall the glorious words spoken by them; “Were not our hearts burning within us while He talked with us on the road and opened the Scriptures to us?” ~ Luke 24:32

When we take the time to recognize the presence of Jesus in the encounter in our lives, our hearts begin to burn with love, joy and forgiveness. We then decrease in order for the one that is within us is greater than the one that is within the world. ~ 1 John 4:4

Jubilee“…this Holy Year of Mercy is ‘a time for the Church to rediscover the meaning of the mission entrusted to her by the Lord on the day of Easter: to be a sign and an instrument of the Father’s mercy’.” ~ Pope Francis

We decrease and realize that the needs of others are more important than our needs and wants. We see this when we walk the Emmaus Road with the homeless, the poor, the downtrodden, those who suffer persecution and abuse. This is the perfect time for us to reconcile our pride and stubbornness to God asking Him for His forgiveness and make us better Sign’s of the Fathers Mercy to others; that they may see Him in our works and actions.

Let us take time within this Jubilee Year to Celebrate the Gift of God that is with us and within us. Let us experience the Encounter of the Mercy of God through opening the Door of our Hearts, that He may enter, fill us with His Grace, in order for us to share that with others.

Keep on Keepin’ On!
