Dear Bruce
I’m carrying a weight from my past. During Lent it has been pressing on my mind & heart to go to reconciliation. Today’s reflection confirmed what I know I need to do! THANK YOU!!!
God bless your work!

I ran across you one day by accident and have tried to watch you daily ever since as I really like your videos. I have passed them on to Catholics as well as non Catholics. I really enjoy them and glad you are going to continue after Easter. Thank You.

Thank you Bruce for your inspirational talk.
I do regret many times of missing the opportunity of talking to family re my feelings not knowing how to in fear of being too much, so say nothing in case I bore them. I do need to pray for help here.

I always fear going to confession. I never know if I’m saying the right things or May leave out sins Ive not considered. Help me God to make a good confession.

Thank you Bruce, after many many years away from the church your message has given me courage to go to reconciliation, even though very fearful and unsure of the format now

I also had been away from the church for 50 years. Going to confession for the first time was the healing I needed the forgiveness I needed. I cried the entire time and finished with renewed faith hope and love as I knew I was now back to where I belonged. Prayers for you Catherine.

I feel the same Catherine, I have not been to Confession for over 30yrs do not no what to say now, even though I confess to God personally still feel I’m confessing to a person/man who does not understand me even though I would like to receive the Sacarment/Blessings and hopefully encouragement.

Sometimes…past hurts are too traumatic to go back for more. I am at peace and I know God loves me and blesses me in so many ways. Thank you Bruce for encouraging me to have the conversation in my mind but God loves me unconditionally and as imperfect as I am. Prayer is offered but reconciliation is still on hold.

So very sorry for your loss Merlene. I lost my daughter too, but many years ago. Be gentle with yourself. I remember wanting to pray, but even found that very hard to do at the time. Be assured that the Holy Spirit is praying in your place when you are unable to. You and your family will be in my prayers.

Dear Marlene I just read your message and I pray that God will shine white light over you and your family at this time. I pray that your daughter is with Him in Heaven and that you will find peace and comfort every day knowing that God is good ‘all the time’ and that He will NEVER LEAVE YOU NOR FORSAKE YOU! God Bless and comfort you today and every day

You bring the Blood bought family together, you leave nothing undone! Everything in prayer and He hears and answers! God is our vindicator, we only have one Enemy, satan and unfortunately he works on people who have deep wounds and Jesus fixes that! Leave it in His most capable hands and let go and enjoy the life Jesus died to give you! Take the Words of our precious Priests at the end of Mass, GO IN PEACE!!! That’s a huge blessing!!! May God continue to bless your ministry!

I am eagerly awaiting Easter and Holy Week. I have stayed away from church because of COVID but have had my vaccine and eagerly look forward to receiving the Eucharist.

Christ says you have to forgive 70 x 7. You have to forgive, but it doesn’t mean you have to be the best of friends with them like a friend, co-worker, or neighbors, but you can’t keep bringing it up over and over, or talk about them in a negative way. Just let it go. God Bless! Thank you so much Bruce. I have been watching since day 1 of Lent.

Hello Karen I pray you are well The following is my answer to the many people who have been asking if there is another series after Easter. Last year I did the Lent Daily Devotional videos and did not intend to keep going after Easter. It was suggested to me by others however, that my staff and I should keep doing them everyday. As I said I had not planned to, but God leads in ways we sometimes don’t expect. So, what started just for Lent last year ended up going throughout the whole year with the Daily Devotionals being… Read more »
