You Make a Difference


JUST so you know… you make a big difference. Your prayers, your notes of encouragement, the Masses you have said, the rosaries you pray, the wisdom you reflect, the confirmations you share… it makes a difference.Continue reading

The Now Word in 2020

Mark & Lea Mallett, Winter 2020

 

IF you would have told me 30 years ago that, in 2020, I would be writing articles on the Internet that would be read all over the world… I would have laughed. For one, I did not consider myself an author. Two, I was at the beginning of what became an award winning television career in news. Third, my heart’s desire was really to make music, especially love songs and ballads. But here I sit now, speaking to thousands of Christians across the planet about the extraordinary times we live in and the remarkable plans God has after these days of sorrow are through. Continue reading

Watch and Pray… for Wisdom

 

IT has been an incredible week as I continue to write this series on The New Paganism. I am writing today to ask you to persevere with me. I know in this age of the internet that our attention spans are down to mere seconds. But what I believe Our Lord and Lady are revealing to me is so important that, for some, it could mean plucking them from a terrible deception that has already deluded many. I am literally taking thousands of hours of prayer and research and condensing them down to just a few minutes of reading for you every few days. I originally stated that the series would be three parts, but by the time I’m finished, it could be five or more. I don’t know. I’m just writing as the Lord teaches. I promise, however, that I am trying to keep things to the point so that you have the essence of what you need to know.Continue reading

Update… and Conference in California

 

 

DEAR brothers and sisters, since writing Under Siege in early August imploring your intercession and prayers, the trials and financial crises literally multiplied overnight. Those who know us have been left as breathless as us at the scope of inexplicable breakdowns, repairs, and costs as we try to cope with one trial after the next. It seems beyond the “normal” and more like an intense spiritual attack in order to not only discourage and dishearten us, but take every waking minute of my day trying to manage our lives and stay afloat. That’s why I have not written anything since then—I simply have not had time. I do have many thoughts and words I could write, and hope to, when the bottleneck begins to open up. My spiritual director has often said that God is permitting these kinds of trials in my life in order to help others when the “big” Storm hits.Continue reading

Co-workers in Christ’s Vineyard

Mark Mallett by the Sea of Galilee

 

Now is above all the hour of the lay faithful,
who, by their specific vocation to shape the secular world in accordance with the Gospel,
are called to carry forward the Church’s prophetic mission
by evangelizing the various spheres of family,
social, professional and cultural life.

—POPE JOHN PAUL II, Address to the Bishops of the Ecclesiastical Provinces of Indianapolis, Chicago
and Milwaukee
on their “Ad Limina” visit, May 28th, 2004

 

I want to continue to reflect on the theme of evangelization as we move forward. But before I do, there is a practical message I need to repeat.Continue reading

The Now Word in 2019

 

AS we begin this new year together, the “air” is pregnant with expectation. I confess that, by Christmas, I wondered if the Lord was going to be speaking less through this apostolate in the coming year. It has been the opposite. I sense the Lord almost eager to speak to His beloved ones… And so, day by day, I will continue to strive to let His words be in mine, and mine in His, for your sake. As the Proverb goes:

Where there is no prophecy, the people cast off restraint. (Prov 29:18)
