EWTN’s New Show For Youth

To Premiere on YouTube
‘You’re Amazing With Justin Fatica’ 
Deals With Real Issues Such as Pornography and Broken Families
Irondale, AL (EWTN) – “You’re Amazing With Justin Fatica” is more than just the title of EWTN’s newest series, which will premiere online Thursday, August 27. (Find out more below!) It’s also more than just a slogan to our host, Author/Speaker/Evangelist Justin Fatica of “Hard as Nails.”
Recently, this young dynamo was at a book signing when a teenager came up to him and said, “I think your message is baloney.” Most people would have been offended. Not Justin.
“I’m an East Coast guy,” he said, “I’m thinking, ‘I like this kid.’ I said, ‘Why do you think that?’”
The teen said, “My dad left me. He’s not amazing. Everybody is not amazing.”
Justin said, “That really must have hurt, but your dad is still amazing.”
The teen got indignant. “You can’t say that. You don’t know what I went through. He left us. I had to take care of my brother.”
Justin looked at the teen and said, “That must have been really hard for you. What your dad DID was not amazing, but your DAD is amazing.”
“You can’t say that,” the teen insisted.
“Did it hurt you when your dad left?”
“Yes, I was a little kid.”
“Did you ever cry about it?”
“Yeah, I cried about it! It hurt!”
“If your dad wasn’t amazing, it wouldn’t have hurt so bad,” Justin said. “Your dad just has to know how amazing he is so he won’t hurt people anymore. When you sin, it hurts others and yourself.”

That’s just a taste of the kind of straight talk that Justin uses to begin cracking open the doors to wounded hearts in need of the healing only Jesus can bring. Find out more on August 27, when EWTN kicks off a series that will take you on a journey to high schools across the United States. In each episode, you will experience Justin as he brings young people – and their parents – to Christ.  You will be there as he speaks with teens about the many issues they face such as pornography, broken families, premarital sex, self-mutilation, and lost loved ones.
EWTN’s newest series will premiere ­online at 8:30 p.m. ET, Thursday, August 27, a week before its 10 p.m. ET, Thursday, Sept. 3 premiere on EWTN television! However, the online version, which can only be seen at www.youtube.com/ewtn, contains a special bonus!

Catholics: Stand With Father Kevin Cusick For Absolute Truth NOW!

I've been remiss in blogging for, well, a long time due to "life" getting in the way. Thankfully I've still been functional as an EWTN press release site - an honor. 

I haven't blogged for lack of material . . . as all Faithful Catholics are aware these are times of trial - of severe satanic attack - the likes of which we haven't seen in our lifetimes.


It was our beloved Saint Pope John Paul II who warned, "Woe to you America if you do not succeed in defending life." 

Abortion is one of the most pressing issues of our time, with millions of innocent babies having been murdered to date. A "Faithful" Catholic - meaning one who actually practices what the church and Her Founder Jesus Christ teaches - is pro life. PERIOD. Not only are we pro life, we are called to DEFEND innocent life "from the womb to the tomb." 
See Abortion Statistics Here: 
Life Site News: Number of Abortions since Roe v Wade

For Clarification on Catholic Truth relating to abortion:
http://wearethesalt.blogspot.com/2013/10/what-does-catechism-teach-about-abortion.html

WITHIN THE CHURCH


Tragically abortion genocide has even infiltrated "The Catholic Health Association." Father Kevin Cusick is a holy priest/military chaplain I've been following on twitter who has petitioned the USCCB for the removal of CHAUSA Leader: Pro Abortion "Nun" Sister Carol Keehan - or the title "Catholic" - from the Catholic Health Association.

From Father Cusick's Blog:


"Abortion is not healthcare; it is murder. Sister Carol Keehan has openly defied Jesus Christ by her encouraging and enabling behavior at every step of the process to introduce the HHS mandate as part of the “Affordable” Healthcare Plan. Even the title of the plan itself has turned out to be a specious lie as so many people are now bankrupted by the program or turned away from any source of health insurance altogether. Above every other consideration, however, the plan is not about health care as long as it approves or pays for any form of abortifacients."
Father Cusick also prudently reminds us:
"We must support our bishops by prayer and obedience. We must act in tandem with them to spread and nurture the Catholic faith for the salvation of souls. But at the same time we are all of us, bishops and people, alike subject to the faith and morals of the Church of Christ, and must help and correct each other whenever that becomes necessary in order to do the same." 
I would humbly add that we pray for Sister Carol. Truly she is on the path of eternal perdition and I fear for her soul. 

My request is that you support Father Cusick's petition. WE NEED TO STAND UP IN THESE EVIL TIMES! Disciples . . . we've been quiet for too long and have allowed evils such as abortion to infiltrate Holy Mother Church. So please, join me on the front lines in support of this petition: A Priest For Life: Why I Am Asking Our Bishops To Remove Sr Carol Keehan from Leadership of the CHAUSA or Title "Catholic" from It's Name.


If you are on twitter, kindly follow Father Cusick  show him some Catholic love, share his petition and be blessed by authentic, holy church teaching. God's grace be with you all.
