Brothers and Sisters in Christ,
JESUS IS LORD! How many times have we heard that Jesus is Lord? If you listen to Fr. Al Lauer on radio, Podcast, YouTube, Audio, or Video, you will hear with conviction that Jesus is truly our Lord. Can we say "Jesus Is Lord" with conviction? If so, it is only with the help of the Holy Spirit, for "no one can say, 'Jesus is Lord,'except in the Holy Spirit" (1 Cor 12:3).
Our goal at Presentation Ministries (PM) is to help you have a personal relationship with Jesus, Who is our Friend (Jn 15:13-15), our Savior (Jn 4:42), and our loving King (Lk 23:38). We encourage you to praise God at daily Mass, read the daily Mass Scripture readings, and to listen to what Jesus has to tell you each day. Our hope and prayer is that you will receive Jesus, the Bread of Life (Jn 6:48), Who gives us eternal life. Make your spiritual growth a priority.
Let's make the coming months a time of building up "conviction" that Jesus is Lord, so that we may run, and not stumble, into Advent. Let us be prepared to go up to the Mountain of the Lord, to celebrate with enthusiasm the coming of Christ. "Many peoples shall come and say: 'Come, let us climb the LORD's mountain, to the house of the God of Jacob, That he may instruct us in his ways, and we may walk in his paths. 'For from Zion shall go forth instruction, and the word of the LORD from Jerusalem" (Is 2:3).
Visit our website, www.presentationministries.com, for information about PM, our retreats, and our ministries. Please pray for us. Some people pray the fourth Joyful Mystery of the rosary for our intentions. Thank you for your prayerful support.
Your brothers and sister in Christ,
