Pope John Paul II and Fr. William Casey: Superficial Preaching

"The greatest obstacle to evangelization in America is superficial preaching."
~ Pope John Paul II ~

God bless Fr. William Casey! A superficial preacher--He is NOT! In his dynamic video he says:

"...I know that there is right now a new generation of young, zealous, orthodox priests and bishops on the rise. They are now making their presence felt in the Church...a small army of new converts...are breathing new life into the Church...Everyone that I have met is on fire for the Catholic faith...The home schooling movement is now gaining momentum...Eucharistic adoration is making a strong comeback, gaining strength. More parishes than ever before have Perpetual Eucharistic Adoration...there is going to be a new evangelization...simply and precisely because God wants it. The Holy Spirit is going to make it happen!...Let's get away from all the negativity, all the defeatism and all the spiritual mediocrity. Let's start lighting the candles and stop cursing the darkness now, right now!

This video was posted by the Fathers of Mercy on July 13, 2009, along with this statement:

BIG PROBLEM IN THE CATHOLIC CHURCH! Do the Catholic Church a favor and E-mail this video to every, Bishop, Priest, Deacon, and seminarian you know. For that matter, E-mail it to EVERYONE you know.
If you are inclined to send a message to priests, Fr. S has written an encouraging one to share with his brother priests: To My Brother Priests.

Mary, Mother of Jesus Christ, Eternal High Priest, Mother of all priests, and our Mother, help us respond generously to the holy Spirit's request, through the voice of His Church, to offer up to God Eucharistic adoration for priests. Amen.
