HOW do we learn to recognize the voice of the Good Shepherd? Primarily in prayer. In Episode 8, Mark summarizes the powerful teaching on Prayer from the Catechism in words that will make you want to pray. Also, hear Mark sing for the first time on Embracing Hope, a moving song he wrote on prayer and communion with God.

THANK YOU FROM MARK…
My family and I want to take a moment to thank all of you for responding in prayer, donations, and words of support. It seems that God is moving many hearts through this ministry, which is a joy for all of us. Know that our family is keeping all of you in prayer in our Rosary. We are tremendously blessed by this little community of readers and viewers—from Singapore to Hong Kong, Australia to America, Ireland to Canada—blessed by your love, kindness, and constant prayers, which are a source of strength and consolation.
As I look back over the past four years, it hasn’t been easy at times; there are some topics that have been difficult to write about, and truthfully, I’ve often wanted to run the other way. I don’t think anybody wakes up in the morning wanting to write about persecution or chastisement. But it is necessary that we listen to our Blessed Mother and what the Holy Father’s have been saying for over a century. It won’t always win you friends, and you’ll lose some when you speak the truth… but I’ve also learned that it will gain you new brothers and sisters in Christ—an immeasurable gift.
Each of you remains in my heart and prayers. May this Christmas truly be an encounter with Christ…
Glory be to the Father, and to the Son, and to the Holy Spirit.
As it was in the beginning, is now and ever shall be,
world without end, AMEN.
