I'm Talking at This Friday's Rally for Religious Freedom


In cities all across the country at Noon this Friday people will be gathering at their respective governmental buildings to protest the stripping away of religious liberty that the Obama administration is just beginning to do.

At the rally being held at Indianapolis' State House, I have actually been asked to be one of the three speakers. Bishop Coyne had a prior commitment, and someone had seen my "I Have a Say" video and asked if I would be able to speak. I'm honored to join with people of good will from all across the country to stand up and speak out. If you are free on Friday at noon, join us at the Statehouse, and if you don't live in Indy, find your local rally on line!

  2. Thank you Father for speaking up and speaking for many of us that will be at home or work praying for you, our country and our church on Friday. Very important time for us. Keep up the great work. We are blessed at St. Malachy's to have you ministering to us.

  3. May I suggest the following prayer in support of Fr. John Hollowell and the other Priests (and Bishops) who are standing up for the Faith:

    PRAYER TO SAINT JOSEPH FOR A PARTICULAR PRIEST

    Saint Joseph,
    I present to you this day
    Father N., priest of Jesus Christ,
    and beg you to be to him
    advocate and defender,
    counselor and friend.
    Open your heart to him
    as you opened your home to the Virgin Mother
    in her hour of need.
    Protect his holy priesthood
    as you protected the life of the Infant Christ
    threatened by cruel Herod.
    In darkness bring him light;
    in weakness, strength,
    and in fear the peace that passes understanding.
    For the sake of the tender love that bound you
    to the Virgin Mary and the Infant Christ,
    be for him, Saint Joseph, a constant intercessor
    and a shield against every danger of body, mind, and soul
    so that, in spite of his weaknesses and sins,
    his priesthood may bring glory to Christ
    and serve to increase the beauty of holiness
    in his bride the Church.
    Amen.
