Now that we have entered the summer months and things have slowed down a bit for me at the parish, I wanted to update everyone on what you can expect from me over the next few months.
First, I am going to continue to write throughout the summer, as I have done in the past, but the writing may not be as frequent as in past summers. I will continue to focus on my “Mondays with Mary” and Quick Lessons from the Catechism series, but there might be some days (Mondays in particular) that you won’t find a new blog post. I am going to take some much needed vacation time to spend with family and friends.
Second, the reason why my writing is not going to be as frequent is because it is my hope to finish two manuscripts that I have begun. One is based on my “Mondays with Mary” series and other is focused on the Doctors of the Catholic Church, also part of my blog writing. I really need to get these finished, edited, into the hands of the diocese for ecclesiastical approval, and then to publishers. Pray that Catholic publishers are interested in my manuscripts so that you can purchase them in the future.
Third, although I am compensated well through my position at the parish, there is always a need for more financial support, especially for those of us who have chosen to work for the Church. If you enjoy what you read on my blog, would like to thank me for my blog posts, and want to see more posts faithful to the teachings of the Catholic Church, please prayerfully consider making a donation. You can find the PayPal link on the main page of this blog or just click on the aforementioned link. Thank you in advance.
Lastly, please pray for me. Working for the Catholic Church is hard work, and more often than not, the devil is prowling around seeking to destroy and confuse. There are two scripture passages that I often think about – Ephesians 6:10-18 and 2 Corinthians 11:16-33 – they often bring me consolation knowing that even St. Paul endured sufferings.
Thank you for the support and enjoy your summer!
Praise Be Jesus Christ…Now and Forever!
