It was a marvelous fundraising dinner last night with Guadalupe Radio at San Antonio Texas. What a great group of energized, authentic Catholics who are working hard to make an impact on our culture. I am grateful to Richard Reyna, the general manager, and Toya Hall for the invitation.

3EDCDAD7-3777-479C-8775-F51980971E21I gave my talk “Swimming Upstream“ and tied it into the necessity of Catholic radio, which I think is one of the most important things happening in the Catholic world today.

We as Catholics are becoming a despised subculture, the underground society, almost the rebellion. Catholic radio calls us all together and energizes Catholics across the country.

However, Catholic Radio reminds us all that we’re not the only ones. There is a movement out there and we are part of something bigger than ourselves.

The day before I left for San Antonio I spent part of the day with Ave Maria Radio for their fundraising drive. Last week I was in Dubuque Iowa for a fundraiser at WCRD. If you can, please support your radio stations which can only survive with our donations.

Fr. Mitch Pacwa from EWTN got in touch with me yesterday and asked me to come on EWTN Live to discuss my new book on the papacy. That will happen the end of July. Looking forward to it!

Fight the good fight (1 Tim 6:12), never be ashamed of the gospel (Rom 1:16), seize heaven (Matt 11:12) and always be ready to give an answer (1 Pet 3:15) and do the work of an evangelist (2 Tim 4:5).
