Feast of St. Apollonius
Greetings! Have you been enjoying the spring flowers and trees? I find them God glorifyingly beautiful! Truly, the flowers and trees of spring really make me thank God. I even love the color of those fresh, new green leaves. This week we are getting some heavy storms though. I pray that everyone remains safe throughout this tumultuous weather, our temperature swings have been dramatic. That reminds me that we need to continue to pray for the people injured in Boston and in the explosion in Texas.
We recently completed the Spring 2013 Radiothon. I have spoken with many people who shared with me how much they enjoyed listening to all the parish and school participation. I know I really enjoyed having everyone at the studio. Every hour that had a special presentation seemed very exciting and I loved hearing all about the history and people involved. The students who came brought in a lot of energy and the parish organization representatives really inspired me for all the wonderful evangelization that is happening. Thanks to everyone who helped, we had a really great week and we are very excited to begin finding new parishes and schools who would like to participate in the fall. Approximately $198,000 in pledges were called and brought in during the week.
Soon, the children will be home for the summer, the weather will be hot and we will be looking for places to stay cool. It has been a busy 2013! This month we ask Our Lady for her intercession. One of my favorite traditions is attending a May crowning. If you know of any, please let us know and we will get that information on the air. I encourage you to have a simple prayer time at your home, honoring Our Lady and praying a rosary. She will bring you closer to Jesus. I encourage you to make a consecration to Our Lady, either by St. Louis de Montfort or the 33 Days to Morning Glory.
Thanks to everyone who helped with the Spring Radiothon. Your prayers, support, and encouraging others to listen were a tremendous assistance for a terrific week for Catholic Radio. Please continue to keep Covenant Network in your prayers. May God bless you!
Sincerely in Christ,
