Deacon Tom is headed towards a deacon retreat — the facilitator is Fr. Michael Gaitley, MIC . You may remember he’s the author (& speaker) who wrote 33 Days to Morning Glory – the beautiful book on consecration to the BVM using the St. Louis de Montford approach. Simplified. Inspiring. Hopeful. I am hopeful that I will return renewed, refreshed and re-energized.
We feature a homily on the Blessed Virgin Mary from an early guest and contributor to Catholic Vitamins. He’s Father Patrick J. O’Doherty, pastor of Queen of Peace Parish in Ocala, FL. Fr. Pat had a lot to do with the renewal in our faith journey. We are grateful for the gift of Fr. Pat in our lives. He has (had?) a coffee mug on his desk with the word HIMSELF… An Irish pundit and personality — deeply in love with Jesus, Mary and the Church.
