Whoda Thunk It

Does anybody out there think that God isn't amazing?

As you may or may not be aware, this blog is connected to the Real Catholic Men ministry and the conference that we are putting on in June of 2008.

Any organization worth its weight - or with a few bucks - knows that it has to have a website "presence" in this day and age. Some use it as a major marketing tool, while others use it simply as a place of information for people to go to on their own, and still others have one so they can appear "legitimate" or professional to those who come across their business.

My reason? I suppose it's a little bit of all of these things, but not one more that the other. But the fact is, where else can people from all over the country and the world find out about who you are and what you do without putting out a boat-load of money to advertise?

I have been amazed at the correspondence I have received over the past 2-3 months. At this point I am doing no major ad campaign (can't afford it, for one thing) and am not even actively promoting the event or the site outside of a close circle of friends. Still, people from Florida, Louisiana, Ohio, etc. have contacted me about the RCM ministry. There is a movement out there which is soft-spoken, but powerful. Waiting to leap out of the darkness and attack the devil anywhere he lurks. The network is forming, strengthening, collaborating.

Al Gore may say that he invented the Internet, but we all know that it was God. Romans 8:28 says, "We know that all things work for good for those who love God, who are called according to His purpose."

Who knew? He did.
