Holy Family Press produces world class Catholic CD’s that dramatize true stories of Eucharistic Miracles and the love and protection of our Blessed Mother and of our Guardian Angels. During today’s broadcast, we aired one of those true stories, “The Maiden of Creteil”, which recounts a miraculous healing of a young girl. These graces and miracles are still available to us today if only we have the faith that is made manifest in absolute trust in our loving Lord and His omnipotent power.

March 18, 2014 – Dan Lynch

Our study of Marian apparitions continues with this week’s Guest, Dan Lynch, founder of Dan Lynch Apostolates, promoting devotion to Our Lady of Guadalupe, Our Lady of America, Jesus King of All Nations, and Blessed John Paul II. Dan travels throughout the states presenting missions, promoting and conducting Image Visitations of Our Lady of Guadalupe and Our Lady of America. He and Sue live in Vermont; they have nine children and 20 grandchildren.

Today, we want primarily to learn more about Our Lady of America, the Immaculate Virgin. Dan’s book, Our Lady of America, Hope for the States is an excellent summary of information about Our Lady of America, the seer Sister Mary Ephrem (later Mildred Neuzil), Our Lady’s statue, medal, requests, and promises–including that more graces will be bestowed on the United States than all the graces from Lourdes and Fatima IF her wishes are granted!

Major ownership issues have slowed promotion of Our Lady of America. These legal issues have to do with copyright and trademarking of Our Lady of America devotional materials that resulted in an Indianapolis Federal Court trial from January 21st until the jury decision last week. The Final Judgment by Judge William T. Lawrence is expected any day. Kevin McCarthy is one of the plaintiffs (with Al Langsenkamp) in that case. Kevin was our Guest on January 7th (http://radiomaria.us/questforlife).

Please join us Tuesday the 18th at NOON ET to learn more about Our Lady of America–one of only two approved Marian apparitions in the United States: Our Lady of America in Ohio, and Our Lady of Good Help near Green Bay Wisconsin. You can listen on air or on line at radiomaria.us .

Blessings to you and your families as we are only one week away from the Solemnity of the Annunciation and Incarnation of Jesus on March 25th. Please plan special celebrations of this most awesome event in all human history–God becoming Man. Take the family to Mass and dinner. Take a day off from your usual activities to pray, do Eucharistic Adoration, participate in 40 Days for Life, and meditate on the significance of the divination of humanity and the humanizing of divinity.

November 29, 2012 – Eric Sammons

Ken talks with his guest Eric Sammons, author of Holiness for Everyone – The Practical Spirituality of St. Josemaria Escriva. The early Church held that all believers could achieve holiness. Over time, this conviction was largely forgotten. Sainthood seemed to be an honor only intended for a select few among the priests and religious. Eric Sammons tells us how Spanish priest and canonized saint Josemaria Escriva, the founder of Opus Dei, recovered the message of the universal call to holiness. His legacy is the belief that each of us can, by God’s grace, achieve holiness through the course of our ordinary life and work. You can download the introduction and 1st chapter of his book at www.ericsammons.com You can read all of St Escriva’s writings for free at www.escrivaworks.org His book can be purchased at catalog.osv.com
