Brothers and Sisters in Christ,
As we end this "Year of the Priest," let us continue to thank God for our Priests and support them with our prayers and our sacrifices! Thank you for all you are doing to know, love, and share God's precious word by which the Lord graces us to have faith in Him as our Savior, Lord, and God (see Rm 10:9, 17). We are looking forward to seeing you personally this summer at our Discipleship Retreats and Bible Institute.
Please pray for the hundreds of people who work for Presentation Ministries (PM). None of them, even the full-time workers, are paid. We owe a great debt of gratitude to them. Please pray for them, and pray about the idea of working for PM yourself — full time, part-time, or as a PM Co-worker (see the back inside cover). You could start your work by being a distributor of this One Bread, One Body (OBOB) booklet to your family, friends, parish, doctor's office, and neighborhood. To order more booklets, call us at (513) 662-JESU.
Father Al Lauer is the founder of PM, which is a canonical Lay Association of the Faithful under the authority of the Archbishop of Cincinnati. Father Al died in 2002, but this Lay Association forges ahead with Fr. Al's teachings. Father's radio teachings are fifteen minutes long and are aired on nearly twenty-five radio stations throughout the USA. If you want to help get Father Al's teachings on your local station, please call Dean Weber at (513) 232-5482.
We pray that God will bless you and your family during these difficult economic times. We know that many of you are affected financially by this economy. As you may know, PM is funded by contributions from individuals like you. One-hundred percent of your donations go to the ministry; no one is paid. We ask you to pray for us. We also ask you to pray about financially contributing toward the spreading of God's word through this OBOB booklet. We thank God for you always!
Your brothers in Jesus,
Deacon George Schmidl, Jerry Cappel, and Mark Schuermann
(Directors of Presentation Ministries)
