Iâ€™m working hard to do more good than bad.â€ť Have you gotten to the point where you aim to at least make it into purgatory?

Peter Herbeck, Vice President of Renewal Ministries and the host of the Ave Maria Radio show â€śFire on the Earthâ€ť, and I are going to challenge you to shake your lowered expectations this week and help you come to realize how much the Lord loves YOU!

We have a front row seat to the future of our Church and the future looks bright! Tizoc Rosales is the Director of Advancement for the Saint Paul Seminary and the Saint John Vianney College Seminary in Minnesota. As he tells us heâ€™s not in the business of forming priests, he is in the business of forming MEN.
Young men, Tizoc and I have a message for you. Youâ€™ve lived through some things and seen some things that have caused you to pause. Youâ€™ve seen the institutions we thought were stable fall away. 9-11 and other recent events have forever changed us. Itâ€™s time for your generation to turn to God. We are all sinful and we all need healing. The time is now. You are our future.

I often share my testimony of my return to the Catholic faith. This week Keith Nester joins me and we have a great discussion about both of our conversions. Keith was raised a United Methodist pastors kid and became a pastor himself. As he became more engaged in his faith he encountered a number of Catholics who showed him the true beauty of the Catholic faith.
Keith became inundated with books, videos, and other material that simply blew his mind. Catholicism got him and he eventually converted to the Catholic faith. Once he abandoned himself he was locked into that wave, ready for the ride of his life. I love this guy and canâ€™t wait for you to hear how he has totally sold out his heart for Jesus!

Do you realize every one of us is meant to have a personal relationship with Jesus? I get itâ€¦.life gets a little uncomfortable, it doesnâ€™t seem to fit, we take ourselves too seriously and we end up missing out on the simplicity of what it means to give our lives to Jesus and experience the infusion of his love and his truth.
My Cajun friend, Karlo Broussard joins me this week to discuss how to be in the worldâ€¦..but not of the world. We need to learn how to properly order our goods in our lives. Let me tell you, pleasure and material goods will not last forever. Remember memento mori. We are going to die. We must ensure we possess the ultimate good. One that never will passâ€¦a relationship with God.

Youâ€™ve probably heard people talk about hearing this small voice. I bet youâ€™ve wondered how exactly do we hear that still small voice within each of us? We have to be quiet. Life requires us to step out in faith and see where God leads us. We may not know what is beyond the horizon but it is worth the ride.
This week Long Ride Home cast member Tony Orband and I reflect upon the challenges and triumphs of seasons one and two as we prepared to film the third season of Long Ride Home.
