Jim Caviezel in NT recording. Raymond Arroyo a Co-producer

Imagine a New Testament that you can listen to anytime, anyplace, with Jim Caviezel as Jesus, and many other speakers that you can and will recognize... and for reduced prices.

The Word of Promise is a New Testament Audio Bible, dramatized by an all−star cast of actors, including Jim Caviezel as Jesus, with Marisa Tomei, Louis Gossett Jr., and many more. This audio Bible is produced with state of the art audio technology, including sound effects and an original musical score. This is a new experience in audio Bibles like none before. Take a listen today!

You can have your Church or ministry signed up as a way to 'Pay it Forward' (If you are from WI, please support a WISCONSIN Church if you have viewed this here.
Note: at this time, Holy Name of Jesus in Wausau is listed and St Patrick's in Onalaska is listed for Catholic Churches.)

However, please be aware that this is KJV (or NKJV) New Testament, not RSV or NAB, etc.

God bless!

FR EMIL JOSEPH KAPAUN: Cause for Sainthood to be officially opened

I have had a special place in my heart for Fr Vincent Capodanno over about the past eight years, since I first heard of him. In the course of researching Fr Capodanno, I had come across another Chaplain whose story has also intrigued me.

Fr Emil Kapaun was an Army Chaplain during WWII and the Korean War. He saved many lives (impossible to know how many he saved simply by going out after them, much less actually CARRYING injured men if he had to). He was captured only because he refused to leave the injured men he was with. I recently read Shepherd in Combat Boots, and am even more impressed.

Fr Emil was in the news again yesterday. (Same story is here.) After reading Shepherd in Combat Boots, I can't help but think that this man is not only a Saint, but that he was martyred while a POW in North Korea.

Just a few otehr places to learn more about him:

Happy Father's Day!

To my children's father,
to my son,
to my sons-in-law,
to my brother's who are Dad's,
and to all.

May God hold you each in the palm of His hand,
and make you to be the best father you each can be for your children.
May He draw you ever closer to Him, to your spouses, and to your children.
May you each be the best example of father-hood for your children.

Numbers 6:24-26

God bless!!
