When I pray, I hear a tiny You have the power to save the world. voice. [You've heard it too.]You just have to believe. It's a voice that whispers, "You can do it. If you have faith you can move mountains." Then, if you're like me, that little voice gets drowned in a clamor of doubts. [But if you struggle to keep hearing that small voice, your faith grows stronger and three remarkable things happen.] Your prayers are answered (they [always] are). You see things more clearly by the light of your strengthened faith. And your act of faith falls like a tiny raindrop, touching another soul. That soul is strengthened, and its faith goes out to another. And so it continues until all come to believe in the Lord's message of infinite love, the world's only hope. What You Can Do to Help Right Now: How to Use Your Power You can help bring the Good News to the world right now by performing [two simple acts of faith.] First, please join us in this [Three Special Novena of Masses to St. Anthony], to ask for his intercession to help people find their lost faith--especially young people. Second, please send in a gift of $10 to help our Franciscan Missionaries struggle to bring the Lord's message of infinite love to those suffering in Central America. [Now stop and look inside yourself for a moment.] Feel the struggle going on inside. Part of you--the part that believes--wants to help, and part of you wants to hold back. Pray, and let your better half win. Please, use the enclosed envelope to send in your special intentions, and your gift to the missions, today. When you mail it, you'll feel the great thrill of victory. Please let me hear from you soon. Fr. Roderick, O.F.M. Franciscan Mission Associates You nave the power to bring the Good News to the world. All it takes is a simple act of faith. St. Anthony will help you. Two Gifts For You--Rewards And Reminders of Faith In return for your generous contribution to help support the struggle for faith the world over, and in our missions, we'd like to give you two special gifts to help you strengthen your own faith. St. Anthony Medal: This medal contains blessed cloth touched to a relic of St. Anthony. Hold it while you pray to strengthen your faith.
