UPDATE: Half Way There!

Dear Friends,

By now, you probably have seen several pleas from me for donations as we were at a deficit of $30,000 for the end of the year. Thanks to many of you, we have reached the halfway point raising almost $15,000!

But, that means we still have $15,ooo to go and WE NEED YOU!!! We rely on donations to bring you We rely on donations to bring you Divine Intimacy Radio. And we rely on donations to cover scholarships to the Avila Institute for the faithful poor including priests and religious.


We are very frugal with the donations you send us. We always ensure we are getting the best value for the technology we use to bring all we offer into your home. I am not happy about it but the Avila team is mostly paid by rewards in heaven and much less in the temporal. Neither Dr. Anthony Lilles nor myself receive any salary for our work with the Avila Foundation. We work to be as frugal as possible without putting the safety and integrity of our services to you at risk.

Though we offer our spiritual support to you for free, it is not free to us. A lot of free “stuff” on the internet actually comes at a higher price than most would suspect. A lot of “free” sites also sell your information to companies that don't care about your personal information. We will never do that. You trust us enough to give us your information and we ensure that it remains safe at a cost to us, but not you.

We rely solely on your donations to function in every aspect.

So, please once again, allow me to be direct and to the point. We are in desperate need of your help. We are still short $15,000. If we have been a blessing to you and you support our work and can act now, please click HERE to help us to finish closing the gap.


Whether you can give in large amounts or small, please help us continue funding these precious works through a year-end, tax-deductible gift that will help us to continue to bring Christ into your home and the lives of so many around the world.

Thank you in advance for your generosity. We are grateful that you have joined with us in this important mission of changing lives and bringing renewal to the Church through faithful Catholic theology.

Yours in Christ,
