Hello Everyone! I hope that the first few weeks of the new year have gone by well for you!
On May 13, 2019, I gave a talk in Ishpeming, MI on Marian Consecration and Fatima. I have made the talk available on my YouTube channel.
There was a group of people at the parishes in Ishpeming who were preparing for consecration to Mary. I was contacted either in February or March by a member of this group and was asked to give a talk about Marian consecration in relation to Fatima. I had not given such a talk before, but thankfully, I had some thoughts in my head and was able to organize them along with other material.
You’ll find the result of my preparations in this talk.
I also made a PowerPoint presentation to go along with the talk. My remarks were written out in advance, though there were numerous times that I went “off script” with the audience.
For the present video, I took digital stills of the PowerPoint and arranged them accordingly to the audio file.
I decided to upload to my YouTube channel a video that I filmed 8 years ago.
On July 30, 2011, Br. Ignatius Prakarta, OSB, made his solemn profession of monastic vows in Norcia, Italy. I was present and filmed a good part of the ceremony. This was about 5 years prior to the earthquakes that destroyed the beautiful Basilica of St. Benedict in the summer of 2016.
A few months ago, I came across a talk from Archbishop Fulton J. Sheen on The Demonic Today. The talk struck me very much. A friend transcribed the talk for me and I would like to make it available for you here.
Back on September 10th, I had just finished a work-out and was passing by a racquetball court. It was very early in the morning and no one was using the room. It has some beautiful acoustics and so I decided to record myself chanting Benedicamus Domino.
The piece is not very long, not even a minute, but I posted it today on my YouTube channel for anyone interested.
