Under Construction

The CallIf you’ve been to my website lately, you’ll see that its currently “under construction.” A number of people have asked, “What’s going on?” so I’d like to take a few moments to explain.

For the past three years, I’ve worked with an incredibly talented woman of God as my Event and Marketing Coordinator. She has been a true blessing to my apostolate and to me! Recently, she has had to step away from assisting me to work more closely with her husband in their thriving business, as well as manage a growing family. This wasn’t easy as we have worked extremely well together and there is no question that I would not be where I am today without her help. In the end, however, focusing on family is the right thing to do to maintain a sense of balance and perspective in her life.

During the past six weeks, I’ve been doing a lot of soul searching (in Adoration, of course!) about what God has accomplished through my apostolate thus far and where I want to be as I began searching for a new management team.

After speaking with a few folks, I struck-up a conversation with my good friend Jerry Usher, former Catholic Answers Live host, Founder of Vocation Boom, and the current President of Third Millennium Media (TMM). I asked him to submit a proposal and, upon review, it was quite evident that they thoroughly understood my goals and objectives that include, above all else, changing the world by bringing as many people as possible to a deeper love of Jesus Christ and the Gospel by sharing the truth of the Catholic faith in love.

After prayerful discernment and a discussion with my wife, Colleen, about what was best for our family, I’ve decided to partner with TMM in order to achieve all that God has planned for me to do for His honor and glory. Right now, we are in the middle of a short transition period as we begin implementing our plans for the future that include a new website and other exciting changes. Stay tuned!!

I am truly grateful beyond words for your support and prayers for my apostolate, especially during the last three years of working in the Lord’s vineyard on a full-time basis. Thank you! It hasn’t been easy but with my wife and family behind me—and your continued prayers—“I can do all things in Him who strengthens me” (Philippians 4:13). Please know that you and your loved ones are in prayers every day. God bless you all!

Psalm 144:1,

Deacon Harold

Deacon in Melbourne.jpg

The wonderful women of faith over at the Beauty in Belief blog have just published an interview they did with me this month. I cover a wide range of topics that include: the diaconate, the redefinition of marriage, Planned Parenthood, fallen away Catholics, and ongoing conversion.

Click HERE to read the interview.

BTW, the photo above was taken while speaking at Faith on Tap at the Pineapple Hotel (Kangaroo Point) in Brisbane, Australia during my October 2012 Year of Faith Tour sponsored by Parousia Media.

And YES, I’m holding my rosary!

From the Rooftops!

I am thrilled to announce that I am hosting a brand new live radio show on Radio Maria (http://radiomaria.us) called From the Rooftops.  The title of the show was inspired by this quote from Blessed John Paul II:

Do not be afraid to go out on the streets and into public places like the first apostles who preached Christ and the Good News of salvation in the squares of cities towns and villages. This is no time to be ashamed of the Gospel. It is time to preach it from the rooftops (World Youth Day 1993).

(Click on the banner below for a list of shows!)

together

Here is a short summary of what the show is all about:

The God of Love sent his Son into the world to remind us of the unchangeable principles of reason and faith.  From the Rooftops discusses current issues within society in light of the beauty and truth of Church teaching.  The goal of the program is to rekindle the desire for intimacy with the Lord by reconnecting the Catholic faith to the every day lived experience. With courage, decisiveness, and fidelity, From the Rooftops will help plant the seeds of faith in meaningful and relevant ways onto the hearts of young adults and those who feel disconnected from the Catholic Church.

The show airs live every Wednesday from 10:00am-11:00am Central Time. You can find all the archived programs HERE.

SPREAD THE WORD and shout it From the Rooftops!!
