Brothers and Sisters in Christ,
Praise God the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit!
Thanks for all you're doing to love and serve the Lord. Thanks
for your generosity to the Lord in Presentation Ministries (PM).
We are in a great period of celebrations! We just celebrated
Pentecost where we recall the descent of the Holy Spirit on our
Blessed Mother and the Apostles. Now in June, we will be
celebrating the feast of the Most Holy Trinity (June 3) where God
reveals Himself as Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. Then, we celebrate the great Feast of Corpus Christi (June 10), where Jesus
gives us His body, blood, soul, and divinity in the Most Holy
Eucharist so He can be with us always (Mt 28:20; Jn 6:34). Then,
we celebrate the great feasts of the Most Sacred Heart of Jesus
(June 15) and the Immaculate Heart of Mary (June 16).
All of these special feast days remind us of God's special
love for us and His desire to be part of our lives. He died for us
because He loves us and wants us to be in heaven with Him (Lk
15:7). Then He sent His Holy Spirit with His gifts to help us do
His will. And finally. He gives us His body, blood, soul, and His
divinity in the Eucharist because "God's greatest desire at the
Mass is that we become the very thing we receive" (St. Augustine). Let us imitate the virtues of Mary for the purpose of uniting
ourselves to her sacred Son.
The Lord has fantastic plans for you. Ask him if He is calling
you to prepare to carry out those plans by participating in our
Discipleship Program and Bible Institute. Please pray for the
thousands of people who work for PM. None of them, even the
full-time workers, are paid. We owe a great debt of gratitude to
them. Please pray over the idea of working for PM yourself - full
time or part time. You may start your work by being a distributor
of One Bread, One Body to your family, friends, parish, city,
diocese, or state.
Also, pray for the completion of the Discipleship Center in
Peebles, Ohio where we have our retreats. We still need about
$500,000 to complete this work. Please pray about what the Lord
is asking you to donate for this great work.
Thanks again for your love in Jesus. It is such a privilege to
live in His love.
In Abba, Jesus, and the Holy Spirit,
Your Brothers in Jesus, the Directors of Presentation Ministries
