It was a beautiful and extraordinary time of grace with my brothers and sisters in Louisiana. My thanks to all who worked so hard to bring us there. My prayers and love remain with the people of Louisiana.

IT’S hard to put into words, but it is the sense that this ministry is entering a new phase. I’m not sure I understand what it is even, but there is a deep sense that God is pruning and preparing something new, even if it is only interior.
As such, I feel compelled this week to make some minor changes here. I have given this blog, once called “Spiritual Food for Thought”, a new name, simply: The Now Word. This isn’t by any means a new title to readers here, as I have used it to refer to meditations on the Mass Readings. However, I feel it is an even more apt description of what I feel the Lord is doing… that the “now word” needs to be spoken—whatever the cost—with the time that is left.
Among the reasons why one would have a “heart of stone,” [is that someone] has gone through a “painful experience.” The heart, when it is hardened, is not free and if it is not free it is because it does not love…
—POPE FRANCIS, Homily, Jan. 9th, 2015, Zenit
WHEN I produced my last album, “Vulnerable”, I put together a collection of songs I’ve written that speak of the ‘painful experiences’ that many of us have gone through: death, family breakup, betrayal, loss… and then God’s response to it. It is, for me, one of the most moving albums I’ve created, not only for the content of the words, but also for the incredible emotion that the musicians, backup singers, and orchestra brought to the studio.
And now, I feel it is time to take this album on the road so that many, whose hearts have been hardened by their own painful experiences, can perhaps be softened by the love of Christ. This first tour is through Saskatchewan, Canada this Winter.
There are no tickets or fees, so everyone can come (a free-will offering will be taken up). I hope to meet many of you there…
THANK you for every prayer, every letter,
every kind word, every gift this past year.
I am filled with a deep joy and sense of wonder
at the great gift of not only our Savior
but of His Church, which has spread to every nation.
JESUS CHRIST IS LORD.
Love and blessings from the Mallett clan
with gratitude and prayers for your joy, peace, and refuge in
Jesus Christ Our Savior.
THE words have been on my heart for some time,
Comfort My People.
They are drawn from Isaiah 40—those prophetic words from which the people of Israel drew their comfort knowing that, indeed, a Savior would come. It was to them, “a people in darkness”, cf. Isa 9:2 that the Messiah would visit from on high.
Are we any different today? In fact, this generation is arguably in more darkness that any before it for the fact that we have already seen the Messiah.

Advent Mission with Mark Mallett

Rediscovering Our First Love
December 1st — 3rd, 2014
BROTHERS and sisters, things are beginning to move very fast in the world with events, one on top of the other… like the winds of a hurricane nearest the eye of the Storm. cf. The Seven Seals of Revolution This is what the Lord showed me would happen several years ago. But who of us can prepare for these things outside of God’s grace?
As such, I have been inundated with emails, texts, phone calls…. and I can’t keep up. Furthermore, I sense the Lord is calling me to more prayer and listening. I feel I am not keeping up with what He wants me to say! Something has to give…

I laughed, I cried, I was riveted to the very last word. But perhaps more than anything, I was astonished that such a young mind could conceive The Tree, a new novel by my 20-year-old daughter Denise…
Begun when she was thirteen, and now finished seven years later, The Tree has been stunning reviewers. I am more than excited to share what they’re saying about this new book that, set in a medieval period, is a journey through raw emotion, suffering, and mysticism. We are proud to announce today the release of The Tree!
AS I mentioned recently, when you come between the Woman and the dragon, you’re entering a primordial battle!
A storm passed over today and a near lightning strike fried my computer (even though it was plugged into a powerbar)! Fortunately, it was backed up to a hard drive… unfortunately, the computer is damaged.
But it gives me an excuse to introduce (at my office manager’s behest) our new Donation page that makes it way easier for supporters to contribute to this ministry. Just click the button below, and donating on a monthly, annual, or one-time basis has been streamlined. We’ve heard your complaints, and hope you will appreciate the new design.
And suddenly, we need some extra help!
