Gary Zimak

I’d Like To Share Something Personal With You…

 

Catholic speaker Gary Zimak will be the guest of Marcus Grodi on EWTN's The Journey Home on Monday night

When I look at the above EWTN program listing I feel like scratching my head and saying, “Is this for real? ME…on The Journey Home?!!!”

On Monday, January 26, I will tell my story on EWTN TV’s The Journey Home with Marcus Grodi. I have to be honest and tell you that I never thought that I would appear on this program. In fact, I never even thought that I had a “story”. After all, I’m a cradle Catholic who never fell away from the Church. I went to Mass every week for as long as I can remember. Big deal, right? Not much of a story…

Over the past year or so, I’ve accepted the fact that I do have a “story” and I want to share it with the world. As you watch the program (which we taped in December), here’s what I hope you’ll take away from the interview:

1. It is totally possible to go to Mass week after week and have no (or a very limited) personal relationship with Jesus Christ.

2. The Lord is so merciful and loves us so much that He never ceases to reach out to us over and over again. Even when we repeatedly ignore Him, He continues to call us in new and creative ways.

3. It is not only possible to meet Jesus Christ and have a personal relationship with Him through the Catholic Church, it is the best place to have that encounter!

4. Having a close, personal relationship with Jesus is a life changing experience that will fill your life with great joy…even if you are struggling with many difficulties.

I hope you’ll tune in and let me share my story with you. You’ll hear all about how lukewarm and self-centered I was for many years. As the details unfold, you’ll be able to see how the Lord continually reached out to me and, for the most part, how I ignored Him. What’s really important, however, is the fact that I finally accepted His amazing offer and invited Him into my life. I now have a personal relationship with Jesus and I’m really glad that I do. In fact, I plan to spend the rest of my life working on that relationship and telling others about my friend Jesus.

Please join me on Monday night as I share my personal story with Marcus Grodi…and with you!

Announcement Number Four – My Journey To Jesus!


 

Catholic Speaker Gary Zimak tells his conversion story on EWTN TV's The Journey Home with Marcus Grodi

Here’s my final announcement (for this week, anyway!)

As many of you know, I am a cradle Catholic and I have attended Mass every Sunday for as long as I can remember. Given that information, it may come as a surprise if I tell you that for most of my life I never knew Christ personally, worried constantly, rarely prayed and made no effort to live out my Catholic Faith in the world.

On January 26 at 8 PM Eastern, you’ll have a chance to hear my conversion story as I visit Marcus Grodi on the EWTN TV series, The Journey Home. I hope you’ll be able to watch the show, especially if you’re eager to have a closer personal relationship with Jesus. No matter how distant the Lord seems to you, He is closer than you think and He wants to be your friend. Tune in on January 26 and let me share my story with you!

Announcement Number One – Wake Up With Gary Zimak!
