I’m sure that some of you may have noticed that I’ve been absent from some of my evangelization activities lately. No weekly radio show (although it still airs in reruns), no Following The Truth newsletter, no articles for Catholic Exchange or appearances on the Son Rise Morning Show, and very few blog entries. Is everything ok?
Well, I’m happy to report that everything is fine and that I’m just taking a break from some of my more public efforts. I’m actually doing what the Lord wants right now and enjoying it. Some of you may be aware that my Catholic evangelization efforts are not what I use to support my family. In other words, I have a day job. At one time, I hoped that I would be able to support my family through full time Catholic evangelization, but that’s just not practical at this time. Instead, the Lord has recently provided me with a new position in my current company. It is a job that requires a lot of thought and effort, but still allows me to work a normal work week and attend Mass every morning. There is a lot of information to be absorbed and it leaves me little time for writing and radio appearances. Instead, the new job affords me the opportunity to offer up my daily work to the Lord, bring the values and teachings of my Catholic Faith into the workplace, provide for my family and spend quality time with them each evening. And the beautiful thing about it is that this is what God wants me to do for the time being. It is also what He asks for the vast majority of you as well. Sometimes we lose sight of the fact that the road to our sanctification is most often found in the ordinary activities of daily life.
In meantime, I’ll still be blogging from time to time and putting some short thoughts on Twitter and Facebook. My website (http://www.followingthetruth.com) is still active and contains lots of good resources about the Catholic Faith. I also hope to write some articles soon and may just turn up on EWTN’s Son Rise Morning Show in the future. I still feel called to spread the Good News of Jesus Christ as contained in His Catholic Church, so I’m sure that this is not the “end of the road” for Following The Truth Ministries. Please feel free to email me at firstname.lastname@example.org with any comments or questions. I ask for your continued prayers and will remember you in mine as well.
Your Brother In Christ,
