Thank you Bruce for continually uplifting teaching and inspiring us with the Word of our Lord and God. I couldn’t thank God enough for prayers answered and blessings He generously bestow upon me, at a time where I started to give up and have no hope. How He restored my husband’s health, granted me a post, which will assist me in the near future, and bringing me back my son,who was living a controlled life, although he is still unemployed at least he enjoys the wonders and joy of life. And Birthday blessings in abundance to you and your brother… Read more »

Thank you Lord for answering my prayers so quickly. I had been feeling so empty and was really trying to pray daily and keep up the daily with Bruce but I wasn’t truly feeling it in my heart. While I sat in chapel yesterday I asked God to plz show me in my heart that he was truly in me and in my heart. Well he did he helped me find the words to pray and put this book for me to find Rediscover Jesus An Invitation from Matthew Kelly. I just had to smile at how is truly with… Read more »

Thank you Rosemary! Tonight, I listened to Bruce’s message. He was emotional and that validated for me that God is talking to us through him. You and Bruce are truly servants of God and his teachings. I hope we can make this ministry strive like your calling is asking. My heart and prayers for all of you. This world needs a world pilgrimage towards God. I pray God will show himself more to us so more will come to believe.

Good Night,
Nancy

I am so thankful for my FAITH and for connecting with other Catholic Christians. I am so blessed to have a faithful God that shows me His presence during this lonely season of my life. Even though my husband of 33 years has chosen to leave me and our family, through daily prayers, through scripture and the Blessed Sacrament, God has shown me over and over His unconditional love through His Holy Presence. I know, He will never leave me and through my trials offered to Him,, blessings continually flow. I cannot even begin to name how His gifts have… Read more »
