When You're Down and Out...

The Sisters at Our Lady of Peace Retreat Center have been so supportive to Real Catholic Ministries.

I attended my first retreat there about 6 years ago. It was a married couples retreat with fellow Teams of Our Lady members. I remember not wanting to leave. The place is so serene and it gave me a quiet place to contemplate my marriage and my manhood.

I've been back many times. And not just for retreats, but to say "hello" and lend a hand when needed.

One of my favorite things to do at OLP is to go to their annual BBQ. So many great people having nothing but good food and fun. Music, games for the kids, raffles. All the things you'd expect.

This year, the Sisters offered to let me have a spot to put up a table to help promote RCM. And what a spot it was. Right by where everyone had to purchase their food tickets. No one could get in without going by me!

Now I must admit, I've been having a rough time of it lately. Both personally and spiritually. Wondering what God is wanting from me. Dealing (again) with disappointments. Sometimes it's hard to be the "face" of RCM when you're not "feeling it."

But this BBQ, this table and this exposure was exactly what I needed.

So many people came up to me to shake my hand and thank me for the ministry. People who are enjoying the radio show. People who are just glad that someone - anyone - is out there on the frontlines giving it a try.

It's true that the laborers are few. And there is much work to me done.

Thank you for your prayers of support. I honestly don't know where I'd be without them.

God bless you all!

I see you are plagued by the mysterious Chinese Spam Engine as well.

But more on topic.

As I'm sure you are aware, the OLP BBQ gets most of it's support from the Knights of Columbus. In fact, as a Knight, I've volunteered for the setup/teardown a few times.

It occurs to me that your ministry might benefit from association with a Knights of Columbus Council- and perhaps, since you're on KBVM, even getting the State Council involved. said...

Wow... Real Catholics, as opposed to all of those fake Catholics? Personally, I'd rather have the fake ones. At least they didn't murder, commit cannibalism in the crusades and rip Jewish babies from their parents. Catholics are like the rest of Christendom: afflicted with rectal-cranial-inversion.
