Praying for you

Praying for You!

I am in the midst of signing more than 600 copies of Navigating the Interior Life: Spiritual Direction and the Journey to God to send out to the hungry faithful who made a donation to secure a copy. As I for post on praying for youwrite a note on each and sign them I am also praying for each person who will read them. I am supernaturally aware that the words I write are not just words, they come with and through the Holy Spirit because of prayer and His promise.

I am a bit overwhelmed by all of this. It is a privilege beyond words that I (and our faithful volunteers) have the opportunity to serve so many of God's people – to serve you. I have prayed for years that He would allow me to serve His people to better know and love Him and He has answered in abundance. I am humbled to tears. Thank you for those who donate, and pray, and tell others in order make all of this possible and who by doing so, also participate in bringing hundreds of thousands of Catholics into a deeper relationship with Christ.

Yours in Christ – Dan

    Thank you for praying as you sign!

    With all the great Catholic blogs out there, browsing the web can be like candy for the Catholic reader. Sometimes all that candy leaves one quite hungry. Your site RC Spiritual Direction invariably fills me with insight … often it’s a firm step forward in my relationship with God.

    I’m looking forward to your book. 🙂

    Pax Christi!

     How about me? I just ordered the book yesterday (after an epic battle with Paypal) and cannot wait to read it over the break next week – I’m a medical student with a family and thanks to the hectic demands of life, I’ve been all but forced into becoming a daily communicant just to keep body and soul alive.

    Your words, along with those of Fr. Bartunek, and Bishop Mansour have convinced me of the need for spiritual direction – to nourish my vocation as a physician, father, and defender of the faith (yes, medicine can be a hostile environment!). So, thank you for this site and for your work. God’s blessings!

    • Dear David – thank you for your kind words. Your order probably won’t come as fast as you anticipate as we have run out of books! However, more are on the way. Your patience is appreciated.

  • SueAthey

    Thanks Dan, I’m looking forward to receiving and reading your book.

  • Marg

    Thank you Dan for taking the time to signing all the books and praying for all. I am looking forward to receiving and reading your book as well. I praying you you too.

  • EileenFrances

    Dan, the book and the signature are prayers in themselves! Thank you for the sweet note of prayers as you sign. God bless you and your family especially on this coming feast of Christ the King!

  • Good things are worth the wait!  Thank you!

    • Ha – I would be grateful if you could somehow sprinkle patience dust on many who are less so than you are! 🙂
