Father Donald Calloway on “From Fear To Faith”


 

Here’s the first of several endorsements for my new book (coming in August), From Fear to Faith: A Worrier’s Guide to Discovering Peace. I’m grateful to Fr. Calloway for his recommendation!

Father Donald Calloway endorses From Fear To Faith, the new book from Catholic Speaker and Author Gary Zimak

“One of my favorite passages in the New Testament is when Jesus tells his apostles the following: “In the world you have troubles; but be of good cheer, I have conquered the world” (Jn. 16:33). There is no doubt, as Jesus affirms, that we live in a troubled world that could give us much to worry about. Yet, our faith in the promises of Christ gives us the ability to overcome our fears and anxieties. In From Fear to Faith Gary Zimak gives both practical advice and biblical examples for helping us to have total confidence and trust in the goodness of our loving God. I highly recommend this book to all!”

Struggling To Live Your Faith In The Workplace? Here’s A Book That Will Help!


 

Catholic Speaker and author Gary Zimak reviews Faith At Work by Kevin Lowry.

As someone who worked in the corporate world for thirty years, I understand the challenges of integrating faith and work. Despite the difficulties, however, it’s something that must be done if we are to authentically live out our Catholic Faith. Recently, I had the opportunity to spend some time with Kevin Lowry. I emerged from our meeting a better man, as he is one of the kindest and most genuine individuals I’ve ever met. In addition to being the Chief Operating Officer of The Coming Home Network International and a popular Catholic speaker, Kevin is the author of Faith At Work: Finding Purpose Beyond The Paycheck (published by Our Sunday Visitor).

If you are looking for concrete suggestions to live your Catholic Faith in the work place, you need to read this book. Once I picked it up, I couldn’t put it down. Kevin has a great deal of experience as an executive manager and has developed effective methods of integrating faith and work. Each chapter ends with a series of action steps and reflection questions, making it perfect for today’s busy worker. You can find out more about Kevin Lowry (and order the book) by visiting his website.

Easing The Suffering Of Jesus…Today!


 

Catholic Speaker Gary Zimak reveals some practical ways that we can ease the suffering of Jesus

On this holy and sad day known as Good Friday, we will have many opportunities to reflect on the suffering of Christ. While this is a great idea and something that we all should do, we need to be careful. We often have the tendency to treat Our Lord’s suffering as something that happened two thousand years ago and something that was caused by some really nasty people who are no longer alive. While this line of thinking is partially true, it ignores two very important facts:

1. Ultimately, all sinners are responsible for Jesus’ suffering. That means that we share in the blame.

2. Even though Jesus’ Passion took place two thousand years ago, there is something that we can do to ease His suffering TODAY.

On the night before He died, Jesus spent time in the Garden of Gethsemane. Scripture tells us that “He was in such agony and he prayed so fervently that his sweat became like drops of blood falling on the ground” (Luke 22:44). Why was He suffering so greatly? In his book, Life of Christ, Archbishop Fulton Sheen expressed the opinion that Jesus was in agony because He saw all of the sins that were committed in the past and will be committed until the end of time. This means that when we hear of Our Lord’s suffering on the night before He died, we should realize that our sins were a contributing factor to his distress.

On the other hand, since He was God, it follows that Jesus would also be able to see all of the good things that would be performed over the years. Therefore, while He was in the garden, Jesus would have known every time that we turned away from sin or performed an act of kindness. Therefore, we still have the ability to ease His suffering in the Garden.

So what can we do about this? For one thing we can recognize that our sins caused Jesus a great deal of mental and physical pain. This should result in some degree of sorrow and a desire to do better in the future. Secondly, we can do something to ease the Lord’s pain. Here are some steps that we can take:

1. Pray - What did Jesus ask Peter, James and John to do while He was suffering in the garden? He asked them to stay awake and be with Him as He suffered. By praying every day, we do just that.

2. Turn Away From Sin - We should ask the Lord each day for the grace to resist temptation and turn away from sin.

3. Trust - Jesus told St. Faustina, “You will give me great pleasure if you hand over to me all your troubles and griefs. I shall heap upon you the treasures of my grace”. Do you trust Him enough to let Him handle your problems?

4. Surrender - The most basic way to surrender to the Lord’s will is to accept everything that happens to you today and not complain. When was the last time you tried this?

5. Show Mercy To Others - “Amen, I say to you, whatever you did for one of these least brothers of mine, you did for me.” (Matthew 25:40). In her diary, St. Faustina wrote of three ways that we can show mercy to others:

a. By Deed (Anything we do to alleviate the suffering of another)
b. By Word (Anything we say to alleviate the suffering of another)
c. By Prayer (Praying for one another)

Jesus suffered and died so that you could go to Heaven. By doing some simple things today and in the future, we have the ability to lessen the intense suffering that Jesus experienced because of our sins. Don’t waste the opportunity!

Lent’s Almost Over And I’m Still Not A Nice Person. Thank You, Lord!


 

Catholic Speaker and Evangelist Gary Zimak offers encouragement to those who are struggling with Lent.

I came to a realization over the weekend. Lent’s almost over and I’m still not as nice of a person as I’d like to be. I still spend way too much time thinking about myself and way too little time trying to serve others. What went wrong? Was my Lent a failure? Is there any hope for me?

After spending some time in prayer, I received a comforting answer. First, I now know that I need to work on getting to know Christ better. The fact that I can be very self-centered confirms that I’m lacking in this area. The good news is that it’s something I can work on. Second, if the only fruit that my Lent produced is the realization that I have a LONG way to go before people can look at me and see Jesus, my Lent was VERY successful. Many people never come to this realization. Now that I’m aware that I have a problem, I can continue to work on fixing it.

Those of you who have heard me speak or listen to my radio show know that I don’t pull punches when it comes to our faith. If I think we’re being lazy, I’ll say so. On the other hand, I do believe in offering hope (as does the Lord, who “who wills everyone to be saved and to come to knowledge of the truth” – 1 TM 2:4). Therefore, I suggest that we look at the glass as being half-full. We still have another week of Lent to go, so let’s keep pushing. On the other hand, the end of Lent doesn’t mean that we’ve lost our window of opportunity. We shouldn’t try to stop growing closer to Christ as soon as Easter rolls around. This is something that we should be working on for the rest of our lives. Therefore, if we recognize that there’s still work to be done…great! Let’s continue to work.

On my radio show this evening, I offered some suggestions for moving forward and becoming more like Jesus. After the Lenten Radio Retreat is finished I plan on helping all of my listeners (and me!) work on this by adding some new daily themes to my show. I’ll be revealing some more details in next few days. For now, however, I recommend that you listen to tonight’s show and try not to get discouraged. If you’re reading this, you’re still alive and that means it’s not to late to become a saint!

“As long as one is alive, each one can become a great saint, so great is the power of God’s grace. It remains only for us not to oppose God’s action.” (St Faustina)
