Hello,

Can anyone tell me if we will be having a visit from one of the visionaries to Australia?

Or is there any special event relating to Medjugorje scheduled for Australia.

Thankyou
Maria

That'll be great Beverley

Fr Don Calloway is a very holy priest and his conversion story is amazing! I hope and pray the youth will hear this call to conversion too, and have an opportunity to listen to him.

God bless

Starting with Mass at 9.15am and a wonderful programme of Priests testimonies being called through Medj.

A day of Peace , Prayer and Healing I am sure. Come all and have a Medjugorje experience in Melbourne Australia.

Thanks Beverley for your reply.
I am so looking forward to attending his conference. I have heard so much about him and recently watched his conversation DVD. A truly inspiring Priest he is - Fr Donald. May God bless him for all his works.
May God bless you too.

With every peace and blessing,

Adolfo, would that be his DVD about Divine Mercy or maybe its the Divine Mercy website I'm thinking about .... although he has launched a new website too:

http://fathercalloway.com/

Why the surfboard?

"The thing is," says Fr. Donald, "surfing has been a part of my life since I was a little boy. There was a time during my formation as a Marian when I couldn't do it because I was landlocked in my studies for 10 years, and I didn't have the opportunity. But now, I travel so much, including to a lot of places that have world-class surfing. And I do try to take some time to get out there and surf, when I can.

The website includes a photo gallery (which has some good surfing shots!).

"The point is, I think it's important to highlight this because I don't want people to think that conversion means you are no longer allowed to have fun," Fr. Donald continues. "I want people to know that it's the opposite. When a man becomes a priest, he's not becoming a robot or an angel. He's still going to be a man, and he's still going to have things that he likes to do. And for me, that passion is surfing. It brings me closer to God. It allows me to stay in physical shape. It's something that I just love to do. I think people are going to be fascinated by that."

People will also undoubtedly be fascinated by his upcoming book, in which he describes his journey from runaway teen to Marian priest.

"I think it's going to give a lot of people hope," Fr. Donald says. "I think it's going to be a great book for the youth and young adults because it's in a popular language and style. It's definitely not boring, and definitely down to earth. I think it will inspire others — people who feel lost and unloved and confused — to reach out to God and become witnesses to hope."

Father Donald has written many academic articles and is the editor of two books: The Immaculate Conception in the Life of the Church (Marian Press, 2004) and The Virgin Mary and Theology of the Body (Marian Press, 2005). He also is the author of the book Purest of All Lilies: The Virgin Mary in the Spirituality of St. Faustina (Marian Press, 2008). Father Donald is the House Superior of the Marian House of Studies in Steubenville, Ohio.

Thanks for sharing Karnala. The DVD which I was talking about called "No turning back: Confessions of a Catholic Priest" Fr Donald Calloway. It can be obtained from The Mustard Seed Bookshop in Sydney. I think his book "No turning back: A witness to mercy" which will be released January next year is similar as his conversion DVD. Whatever it is, it is worth reading it. I am currently reading "Purest of All Lilies: The Virgin Mary in the Spirituality of St. Faustina".

Thanks also for the website. Yeah... I visited it too. It is great website. It contained a lot of information. Let us pray for Fr Donald and all other Priests who are out there. They all need our prayers. May Our Lord keep them safe and may Our Lady protect them and guide them in their Priestly Ministry.

With every peace and blessing,
Adolfo

I think that the visionaries are in need of hearts and doors open.

Well Adolfo you have been to the Conference and we met. How wonderful the day was. Hope you arrived home safely. You can share with the group. Good to see you Leo.

Yes, the day was wonderful and we met. Fr Donald Calloway was so awesome and his conversion story was one truly inspiration story. I am so glad that I made the trip down there and met him in person. I would have regretted though if I did not. All in all, it was worth every minute and penny of it. I arrived home safely that night and was so full of Holy spirit and excitement!
Tell me, when will the DVD of the conference be released? And is there any way which I can purchase it?
May God bless you.
Take care

Adolfo
