  1. Listening to Msgr. Esseff’s conclusion of the Advent was just what my spirit needed. He has a gift of bringing me nearer to the Lord.
    I am so sorry I missed the entire Retreat. But I thank God for the grace of hearing the inspired conclusion.
    Thank you for bringing the O ANTIPHONS. I am so grateful to God for your ministry. I have been encouraged, inspired, edified and challenged.
    I listen to Kris’interview with Deacon James. What a treasure trove of God’s Comfort. Thank you again for dealing with this severe topic of Redemptive Suffering. I pray for God’s grace to go deeper with Him about my pain, fears, offenses. Deacon James, do you think you could make a compilation of your interviews with Kris into a set of CDs or a book?
    I just became a Catholic at 62 years of age, and among all the treasure troves is God’s gifts to me and tne of the most help is the Catholic Theology on Sufferings. I have had a series of Auto immune and chronic illnesses for about 15 years How grateful I am to God for wooing me to HIMSELF in the Catholic tradition.
    I followed your advice of connecting my suffering to a friend who has cancer. It was very comforting for me. I offered it up to our Blessed Mother and asked that it be used somehow for my two friends. Thank you for all those years of preparation. May God’s grace abound to you everyday to continue to sayYES to HIM.
    Thank to Discerning Heart Ministries for your dedication to feeding God’s lambs

    Pax Christi.
