  1. Hello Bruce and Happy 4th Sunday of Lent, beautifully shared Mark’s Gospel 10:17 – 27.
    WOW this does get to you, so thought provoking you find yourself excited in wanting to say ‘YES’ Lord I will follow you today, please help me to make a difference.

  2. Please pray for me. At 75 years of age, I still don’t know what God’s plan is for me. I go to church, I give money to a friend who is bedridden and has little money, I pray of and on all day. My family is in a mess and I try to be the voice of reason when necessary. I have no friends who live nearby; they are all 600 miles away. I can barely walk and am nearly blind. It seems like I don’t have much else to offer. I live on Social Security and barely get by. Depression has followed me my whole life, even though I’ve sought out a great deal of therapy. I came from an abusive home. Of my three children and a grandson that I raised, only my precious daughter has time for me. She tells me that I am her anchor regarding wisdom. I fell so very blessed in spite of all that, but I wonder if there’s more that I should do. Just don’t know what it is. I pray about this daily. When people encounter me, they would never know how terribly depressed I get. I wear a smile always because I know that God is with me and taking good care of me. My husband died several years ago, so I am alone. I think that’s the way I want it. It gives me the time to be absorbed in prayer as often as possible. Thank you for praying for me. I love your lent series. Again, thank you.

  3. Lord please forgive me for the sins I have committed for the and hurt i caused my beautiful wife in the past and for the hurt I caused my family’
    Please lord I ask for forgiveness from her and my family and you and I want to be a better person the best version of myself to you lord and her
    I leave the rest to you my Lord

  4. Thank you so much for you prays and what you are doing for lent. I enjoy your youtube channel that comes to my email. I do not know if you have any other book you have written, but I would be interested in reading more.

  5. Bruce thank you for speaking so beautifully! I find myself in lent on holidays overseas. It is a strange period for me as I’m blessed to be on this journey to enjoy and yet it is lent. I feel a need to overcome this sense of guilt. Thank you for this program – it has helped me as I attempt to stay grounded in faith, as I search for deeper meaning each day when the daily temptation is to involve myself in worldly things only. May God Bless you, your wife and your whole team. Thank you all.

    1. I recently heard that this time of Lent should be a time of joy as we are given the opportunity to give more and in doing so each time draw closer to God … it changed my thinking on Lent from being a time of gloom and wretchedness to a time where I am reminded of God’s love for me each time I give something up or give something away. Each time I am called to prayer, fasting and almsgiving it is an opportunity to know God more. Now when I am following in the way of Lent I experience God and His joy in me … and that enables me to rejoice during this time of abstinence.

  6. Dear Mary,
    I think you are a wonderful person. You have given so much to others in your life and are still helping out. That’s a lot more than most of us ever do. I think you are an inspiration to all of us and I was very touched by everything you have said. I’m sure God knows that you are worthy.
    Kind regards,

  7. thanks bruce, so far on this lenten journey with you n yr team its sincerely picking up for me. trying to do my best, however pl keep praying for me. thank you for all u r doing for me n d world at large. amazing……………………..god bless u all. thanks

  8. You spent your time talking about give it all away and come follow me. There is a wonderful message there. My question is just before that. A man called Jesus good and Jesus says don’t call me good – only your Heavenly Father is good. I don’t understand this. Can you help me understand?

  9. Please pray that I will truly find God and know Jesus. I ask for this every day. I am feeling closer to Jesus in the Eucharist but I want to know HIM more deeply with all my heart. Thank you.

  10. Thank you Bruce and team…I want to follow the challenge of following Jesus more fully.

  11. You are an amazing man of God, bringing us closer to Him and that is our hearts cry. Make us one, make us our brothers keeper,and let our every endeavor Glorify You, Lord, God in thoughts, words and deeds.
