    Father Dan, I am happy to see you doing God’s work with the same passion as always. My son and I were listening to you speak about healing and deliverance on YouTube. Today I so happened to stop by Saint Francis of Assisi Newman Center in Macomb IL while passing through the area and I couldn’t help but think of the great impact Jesus had on me in that little Church. You were there to share the message with me when I needed it, which led to my conversion and Baptism. Thank you.

    P.S. Padre Pio is always looking out for you!

    Fr. Dan, Blessings this New Year one breath at a time. No resolutions but choosing a priority with a Spiritual purpose! As one of the spiritual directors here at St. Kilian’s I am called to pass on your email for a directee who might want guidance in spiritual warfare. This opportunity also affords me a personal chance to say HELLO from my husband Tony as well. Smile ~~~ Marie Gomez
