Sometimes it is great to just sit back and look at some of the positive things that are being accomplished through Deepertruth. Without the great commitment coming from so many people it is very humbling.
I first want to recognize the several hundred members of the Rosary Patrol on Facebook.
There are literally thousands who join us praying devotions, the past two years we have had over 300,000 rosaries prayed for thousands of dedications.
God works miracles through prayer and God anoints the work we do through prayer.
The Rosary and Divine Mercy are central to that devotion.
1 Timothy 4:7-9 states, “Avoid profane and silly myths. Train yourself for devotion, for while physical training is of limited value, devotion is valuable in every respect, since it holds a promise of life both for the present and for the future.”
This is an invaluable contribution. We have had almost 16 million hits by people all over the world. DTB members like Emilio Manzo have contributed greatly by working to make us better known promoting our radio shows and articles.
Just sharing it with people is a great joy because I receive so much positive feedback because how well Deepertruth looks.
Dr. Gregory Thompson and Dr. John Carpenter working with the Southern Missouri Marian Association together with their sharing of the Eucharistic Miracles and Marian Apparitions are adding great inspiration to DTB.
They had put together several Marian conferences hosting great speaker from all over the Country.
Also, through both men, the Ignatius Press movie, Mary Of Nazareth has been seen by several thousand people.
Many of the clergy and religious along with the laity all come out of the theaters sometimes very emotional because of how good this film is.
Their work for the pro-life standing out in front of abortion clinics help saves babies.
I also want to give a special recognition for Joseph Martone Jr of Colorado has been doing great work saving babies.
He has literally been threatened physically and spiritually.
His very home has been attacked on three different occasions where they have destroyed his belongings.
You will see him regularly out there with his Stop Abortion sign
Eucharistic Adoration by several members of DTB all over the Country is very important as well.
This is such a very important ministry we recommend more people to get involved.
Dr, Gregory Thompson speaks all over Missouri promoting Eucharistic Adoration.
Because of his efforts hundreds of people are now involved with spending an hour a week for Adoration.
Thousands have come back home to the Catholic Faith.
Through the efforts of our Radio show, Jeff Hutchins joined me for our Evangelization show, we reached out to thousands on internet radio.
Last year, we helped bring home over 300,000 people back to the Catholic Faith.
We directly responded to the attacks of anti-Catholic Mike Gendron and have given a credible Catholic response to Gendron’s attacks.
Apologetics is heart and soul of Deepertruth.
1 Peter 3:15 states “Always be ready to give an explanation to anyone who asks you for a reason for your hope, but do it with gentleness and reverence, keeping your conscience clear, so that, when you are maligned, those who defame your good conduct in Christ may themselves be put to shame.”
They have had a great impact as people have been received into the Catholic Faith this past Easter Vigil.
What a blessing it is to share their conversion stories on our Radio show. John Benko has also debated Protestant challengers on Deepertruth giving a clear defense of the Catholic faith against those who attack it.
There are so many things that we are doing all across the Country helping many people going to Senior Citizen homes visiting the elderly, visiting people at hospitals, serving the local parish as Eucharistic ministers, lectors, and Eucharistic Adoration.
Fred Williams, one of our newest members, has been helping feed the hungry with his work with St. Vincent De Paul, not to mention the Prison Ministry that Fred is involved in. Christie Martin has been huge with her Garden of Holiness Show on Deepertruth, and the great work she does for her parish.
There are so many things that is going on through the commitment people have to Jesus and Mary.
At this time, I want to present the work of Ross Hoffman and Margie Sindelar for their contributions to the Catholic Faith. Ross has donated more than $50,000 of his treasure to finance trips to Rome and the Holy Land. What a great blessing it was to host a live show from Jerusalem with Catholic Apologist Steve Ray. Margie contributes her time and energy organizing these pilgrimages and many people have benefited from their generosity. The following are some of the testimonies people have offered:
I Denise Anne Gill received my rosary/w-medal from the Rome pilgrimage and I didn’t even send any donation.
My name is Claudia Grams. Ross and Margie were so kind last year to offer those who wanted a Rosary or Medal from Rome. We wanted both. Margie sent them both to us after they returned from their Pilgrimage. My husband sent a small donation to cover postage and their cost of the Rosary and Medal. We have saved them for our great grandson to have when he is with us to join us in our prayers. I appreciate their thoughtfulness.
My name is Karen Dean and I heard about Margie & Ross’s trip to Italy and they were offering rosaries from Rome. I was very happy to have received the rosary from Rome and I did not send any donation. They were thoughtful to offer rosaries to all.
Hi I am Robert Cannon. Last year I followed the Roaming Romans trip to holy sites in Italy. I read with excitement and envy about seeing and being in places dear to a Catholic’s heart, especially (to me) the Basilica of Santa Croce in Jerusalem where rosaries were taken and placed on the Holy Stairs, on each step, steps Our Lord actually walked. After the trip I received one such rosary and a list of very holy places to which it had been touched. As I read the list I felt our great Catholic history and in touch with the communion of Saints. I pray this rosary often and it is a treasure to me.
Hi, my name is Cecilia Ruloph Savage and I got an awesome St. Padre Pio Rosary from your Rome trip last year and I thank you from the bottom of my heart. It goes everywhere with me. Many Blessings to you dear brother Ross! Love and (((((HUGS)))))!!
I received an awesome St. Padre Pio Rosary from the Roaming Romans upon their return from Rome last year. The Rosary has been a blessing to me and it goes everywhere I go. Holding them brings me so much peace. I can’t thank Ross and Margie enough! Pax, Cecilia (((((HUGS)))))!!
My name is Sharon Davidson and I got a rosary from the Roaming Romans Rome trip. I gave it away as a gift because it was special due to the various tombs, relics, and special places it had been touched to.
Hi my name is Andrea Pearson I received a rosary from Roaming Romans last year. This rosary has given me such peace when I hold them in times of anxiety. My family has blessed themselves with it this rosary is a special and cherished gift. Thank you!
Hi my name is GiGi Gonzalez and I received a Miraculous Medal from Roman Romans. I wear it faithfully everyday and love yo share with anyone who will listen about my medal’s travels before it was given to me!
Hi my name is Martha Smith I have many Rosaries, but I use the one that Roaming Romans sent me. It is very special since it has touched so many holy places. Our Mother is very special to me and I strongly feel her presence and that of our Lord when I use it.
Hi my name is Louis Perez and I received a Rosary last year from Roaming Romans last year. The Rosary has been been touched to many Saints and traveled to many places. I carry it with me everywhere I go and it brings me much peace as I pray those Beautiful prayers. Thank you.
Hi my name is Rick McCoy, I received a Rosary and a Miraculous Medal from Roaming Romans last year. Since then I have been more consistent in prayer morning and night. Prayer is the first thing I think of before going to bed and getting up in the morning. I keep both constantly by my bed. I’ve seen relationships with family members healed, along with their personal lives mentally, spiritually and physically being healed. I’ve been more at peace and much less stressed, with more clarity and focus on God. Patience and charity for others has become easier for me along with the desire for peace. I can’t say that the Rosary and medal started all this but they have definitely been comforting tools in helping me to receive these blessings, God Bless and PAX.
This coming fall Deepertruth will be hosting another trip to the Holy Land as Roaming Romans (originally known as the Round Table on DTB). If you would like to send a donation to support Roaming Romans upcoming pilgrimage they will send you a free gift of a rosary or religious medal from the Holy Land, just like last year, they will be made available. Ross and Margie are sponsoring Catholic Apologist Dave Armstrong who is in the process of writing a book for Deepertruth’s Roaming Romans.
Ladies and gentlemen, it is an honor for me to play a part in all of these things working with so many people named and unnamed for their many contributions from Shroud research to writing 800 articles on everything imaginable. Deepertruth has almost 700 internet broadcasts making us number 1 last year for Blogtalkradio’s religious category. This would not be possible without the love and support we receive from those who follow and support the website. God bless you all.
The following is a video that expresses the motivation I have in wanting to help those in need:
