The Beauty of the Cross this week on Women of Grace

I didn’t get a chance to mention that I am visiting on EWTN’s Women of Grace this week. Each day it airs at 11:00 AM ET and 11:30 PM ET. I hope you can tune in.

We are discussing my memoir The Kiss of Jesus and the twists and turns of my life and how they helped to shape my life.

Catching up!

I returned recently from a whirlwind trip to Lafayette, Louisiana. I spoke at a beautiful women’s retreat alongside Johnnette Benkovic. Graces were flowing indeed. It was wonderful meeting all of the lovely “thirsty” women. They were there to nourish their faith and to share with one another. I told them that I firmly believe that when women gather together at times like this–WATCH OUT!–because with God’s grace we have the power to change the world!


Just prior to that my visits on Women of Grace were aired on EWTN TV. You can see all five of them here for a limited time.

A recent article in the National Catholic Register highlighting my Lenten book is here.

Did you know that I make these Novena bracelets exclusively for the EWTN Religious Catalogue?

Have you seen my special bracelets fitting for any woman? They are a prayer aid and help to celebrate human life. Check out the various styles here.

I need to finish a few writing projects and prepare for my trip to Toronto. Please keep me in your prayers and now that you are in my prayers!

My visits on Women of Grace!


I was blessed to have visited with Johnnette Benkovic, host of EWTN’s Women of Grace television show. The shows aired this past week. In case you weren’t able to tune in due to some schedule changes with EWTN’s Pope Francis visit to Mexico coverage, here is a link in which you can view all five shows at your leisure.

I hope that you will enjoy the shows. I suggest you try to watch them soon while they are live on the website.

Women of Grace this week on EWTN this week


This week February 15-19 my visits with Johnnette Benkovic will air on EWTN TV.

This is the normal schedule: EWTN TV at 11 AM EST, Monday through Friday and re-airs each evening at 11:30 PM EST.

But, as I scrolled through the week’s schedule to tape them in advance, I noticed that the show will air tomorrow (Monday) at 10:00 AM ET, not at the normal 11:00 AM ET time. And I noticed that it might not air on Tuesday due to Pope Francis coverage. But, I am not totally sure. That could be just my area. Check it out on your cable.

Hopefully you will be able to tune in and see what Johnnete and I have to share with you. You might be surprised!


Catching up!

I haven’t had a chance to blog lately. I’ve had many things to report, but alas, no time in which to write them down. I’ll probably end up doing video blog posts – much better on my wrists (due to all of the typing I’m always doing and my joint pain). But then again, I’d have to put some make up on and get dressed up (at least a bit better than I am usually in my home office out here in the rural woods of Connecticut)!

Just kidding. I don’t really have to do that. You probably wouldn’t mind if I wasn’t dressed up and didn’t have make up on when delivering a message to you. After all, I am all about keeping it real. But, I think you know what I mean. The videoing requires some thinking and planning too. I’d also have to make sure that my office is clean! 😉 So, for now, I’ll simply type away and fill you in a little, at least.

I just got back from a whirlwind trip to the EWTN television network in Irondale, Alabama. There I met with Johnnette Benkovic and we were together on the set and chatted while five shows were filmed on Women of Grace. They will air in the near future and I’ll keep you posted on that.

It was wonderful to see Johnnette again and to share about the crooked path in my life and my memoir The Kiss of Jesus. We discussed some pretty intense issues. These are issues that affect countless women all around the world. I am praying that these shows will impact women’s lives and even help them to heal from deep wounds or at least get them headed in the direction of healing. Please pray for the people who will watch the shows.


In other news, I’m working on some exciting things at the moment as I continue the fight against the four tick-borne diseases I have been plagued with.

I’ll be back to give you more updates when time allows but I need to get to some deadline writing work right now. May God bless you and keep you!
