Do you ever find yourself in the dumps and wondering what to do to get out of it? God has a way for you to lift your spirit by praising him for who He is and what He has done. I'm excited to announce my new book, "Praise God and Thanks Him: Biblical Keys for a Joyful Life" to be released from Franciscan Media on May 13, 2014! Pre orders can be made on Amazon.
I met so many wonderful people on my speaking tour of England. I was blessed and encouraged by their hospitality and deep desire to deepen their faith. The trip was a blur because it went by so quickly, but what excites me the most is that over 600 people signed cards to help get Bible studies started in in their parishes. The Ascension Press team is doing all they can to organize this effort to put materials into the hands of people hungry to learn the plan of salvation in the Bible. People from other countries were also there, asking for the studies in their languages like Polish and Bulgarian. Pray with me that we are able to spread the word of God to all those who want to hear it!
Keep me in your prayers as I leave for the UK for a several city speaking tour as well as presenting a Bible Timeline in London. I will be accompanied by a great team from Ascension Press who has helped organize this venture along with several wonderful people in the UK. We are hoping to find a way to make it affordable for Catholics in the UK to obtain Bible study materials to help satify their hunger for the scriptures. To learn more about the events, click here.

Lily of the Mohawks: The Story of St. Kateri
by Emily Cavins, Foreword by Fr. Mitch Pacwa
Order from Fransican Media: 800-488-0488 or Catalog.FranciscanMedia.org
St. Kateri is the first Native American to become a saint from North America. Her life of 350 years ago was one of simplicity and devotion to Christ in the midst of great political change and division among the Native American tribes. Her life can help us become more aware of the current situation in the US and Canada concerning Native American relations. She is an intercessor for North American for healing and hope.
Review from Fr. Chris Walsh: In recent years there has been much conversation about the "new evangelization" yet many are still unsure of what it actually means. In Lily of the Mohawks: The Story of St. Kateri, Emily Cavins allows us to experience its meaning as she tells this beloved Native American's story of grace. Through the Jesuit missionaries' willingness to understand the culture of Kateri's people, their commitment to remain a loving presence despite many obstacles and the primacy of prayer and devotion we learn the essence of the "new evangelization". This book tells us a story that will no doubt inspire many so that there are more saints for North American. -- Fr. Christopher M. Walsh, Pastor, St. Raymond Church, Philadelphia PA
For many years Emily has written Catholic Family Night, a set of lessons for every Sunday of the liturgical year that helps families learn more about the Sunday mass readings. Each lesson contains prayers, activities, catechism connection, snack ideas, discussion questions and an easy quiz. Even adults use it for discussion time, so even if you don't have children at home anymore, it still can help you dig a bit deeper into the readings.
We have an indexed PDF available for download for only $20, which includes all 52 lessons of Cycle A (Advent to Advent) plus the lessons from now until Advent begins. Catholic Family Night gives permission for parishes to make copies for their parishoners if they so wish.
