Number 44:

Bob and Penny Lord

Through their Commitment to Evangelization through Communication with their Journeys of Faith ministry the Lord has an able ally in Bob and Penny Lord

   Today we bring you the 44th person selected out of the TOP 100 CATHOLICS OF THE CENTURY. The voters chose the marriage team of Bob and Penny Lord, founders of Journeys of Faith ministry, authors of twenty books and hundreds of videos and well-known on EWTN. As a team they are one which comes through in their talks and videos as one picks up right where the other left off without missing a beat. Their story, like so many Catholics, is one of struggle and survival and then triumph through the simple submission of their will to the Divine Will.

44.    Bob and Penny Lord

We need to be powered by God in order to tap into that Almighty Power!

    In his column today, Pat Ludwa illustrates how any "power" we possess comes ONLY from God. It does not come from within, or from crystals or mantras or self-hypnosis or any other New Age devices. Power within does not come from self-will but from submitting our wills to God's Will as Pat shows how the Son of God set the example with His fiat to His Father, "Not My will, but Thy will be done". Pat proceeds to show how God has shown man, without a shadow of a doubt, that He alone has the Power, not man and the faster we realize that, the better off we will all be and be able to not only accept whatever comes our way in life, but offer all joys and sufferings up to Him for merit and graces. In other words, we rev up that Power through our "Yes" to God and then can more readily run on all cylinders on the road to Heaven. For Pat's column Whose Power?, click on VIEW FROM THE PEW

Whose Power?

September 25th Medjugorje Monthly Message

   Dear children! Today again I call you to become carriers of my peace. In a special way, now when it is being said that God is far away, He has truly never been nearer to you. I call you to renew prayer in your families by reading the Sacred Scripture and to experience joy in meeting with God who infinitely loves His creatures. Thank you for having responded to my call.

"This generation is an evil generation: it demands a sign, and no sign shall be given it but the sign of Jonas. For even as Jonas was a sign to the Ninevites, so will also the Son of Man be to this generation. The queen of the South will rise up in the judgment with the men of this generation and will condemn them; for she came from the ends of the earth to hear the wisdom of Solomon, and behold a greater than Solomon is here."

Luke 11: 29-31
