My Friends,

I apologize for my delay in returning to writing. I have had a few medical issues and writing has been very difficult. It was on July 13 that I had some sort of an episode and my doctors are trying to resolve the issue at hand. But back to why I am writing again. Well, aside from it always being a burning desire inside of me; I saw a video recently about identifying my life’s purpose and my life’s calling. I know mine and I live it every single day as best I can and it’s so wonderful how amazing our Lord lets us know I am.

After watching this video, I easily identified that “Sharing The Rosary” and “Making Rosaries” and giving them away for free, as my life’s mission, purpose and calling. At that very moment, I got a text from a fellow Franciscan asking for 50 rosaries. They knew to come to me. I felt such a confirmation, even though I knew, now I really knew. Thank you Jesus. The Rosary helps lead others to our Lady who leads everyone to Jesus. I got so excited and rejuvenated with my focus that I just had to write today. My brain maybe mush, but my heart and my soul know exactly what I need to be doing; and that is sharing the excitement and the joy of The Rosary with everyone every single day.

Today and every day, I offer up all my suffering and all my challenges, so that I fight through the barriers and forge forward. My greatest goal in life, is to share Jesus through Mary, through her Rosary. I am committed to this till my last breath. Nothing in this life will stop my commitment, not even the threat of death. Our Lord knows my heart, and yes, I may love certain aspects of this life, but I am not of this world; I seek only Jesus and I desire to be with Him so much. I've known this since 1983.

"You can have all this world has to offer, it’s wealth, it’s lust, it’s things; all I want and desire is Jesus.” ~ Rosary Man Jim (I wrote that over 30 years ago)
