What a beautiful reflection on Mother Angelica!!!! Fr. John Paul…that was wonderful and thank you for showing us the confessional set up…May God Bless all of you who offer the Sacraments to us and all who work for EWTN to keep you all on the air! I love the story about Mother Angelica and her amount of weeks for confession with her retort back to you or whichever Friar she asked about how often!!!!
It is providential that Mother Angelica passed on March 27, 2016, only days before Terry Schiavo’s date in 2005; and then Terry passing only days before Pope John Paul II on April 2 that year. Thank you Fr. John Paul for this inside view of EWTN. We saw this after your extraordinary homily today on April 3. You are helping so many with your insights.
Dear Father Joseph,
I hope you and all in your Community are well.
This morning (Saturday, April 04, 2020 – 11H00CT), I watched the EWTN Daily Mass and I listened to the Homily you gave.
The reason I am sending you this message is that, I was getting ready to go grocery shopping and thought to say the St. Michael Prayer and Psalm 91 before leaving the house. As I picked up my iPad, I looked at the time, it was 11H04. I wondered in that moment whether the Mass was streaming on EWTN and behold, it was.
The opening Prayer was powerful – that seized my attention and I decided I was going to watch the Mass. To my surprise, your Homily touched on Psalm 91. That told me that I was meant to say those two Prayers before leaving the house.
Father Joseph, the great and powerful Psalm 91 reinforced my Trust in Almighty God in the year 2016 when the Oil sector was turned on its head …
I am a sinner, journeying to Sainthood and I do not know the Holy Bible from cover to cover. In 2016, Psalm 91, which at the time I didn’t know was a Psalm, was the Prayer that my brother Joseph (my sibling) prayed with me over the phone to dispel my worries. Ever since, I have held onto that Truth about Almighty God and I do not relent in sharing with others the Power of Psalm 91.
In the current Covid19 situation we find the Globe in, when evil is persistent about taking over millions of minds with fear and disorientation, my Family prays both the St. Michael Prayer and Psalm 91 daily – we strive to do this twice daily.
Utmost Gratitude to you Father Joseph for the powerful Homily.
May Almighty God continue to Bless and Hold you and all the members of the Franciscan Missionaries Of The Eternal Word.
I would like Fr. John Paul Mary to reach out to me.
My request to have you reach out to me of 4/8/20, and no reply, sorry to have bothered you. Still think you are so passionate, the morning you have mass I watch again in the evening. You sermon of 5/4 and again on 6/1/20 , words cannot be said how moving they were . Thank you becoming a Frier.
Fr. John Paul Mary, you are a special gift from God. Your sermons touch hearts.
I know you must receive many letters from your appearances on EWTN MORNING MASSES AND ROSARY.
WITH YOUR SERMON ON “ST. CHARBEL”, YOU SPOKE ABOUT THE SPECIAL HEALING “SURGERY”. I AM FAMILIAR WITH ST. CHARBEL SINCE THE 1980’S. I HAVE BEEN IN SEVERE,
CONSTANT FACIAL PAIN SINCE
1973. IN THE 1980’S, I TAUGHT 2ND GRADE WITH AN ARMENIAN TEACHER AND SHE
INTRODUCED ME TO ST. CHARBEL.
AS YOU PROBABLY KNOW THAT ST. CHARBEL’S BODY OOZED THIS FLUID. THERE WERE FRENCH CATHOLIC NUNS THAT COLLECTED AND DRIED THIS FLUID. THEY WOULD MIX
IT WITH A LITTLE SAND AND PUT THE SAND IN TINY 0.5 CM POUCHES. THEY SENT THESE POUCHES TO THE U.S. I HAD ABOUT 10 OF THESE POUCHES.
MY TWIN SISTER, WHILE I WAS AWAY AT DENTAL SCHOOL, GAVE THESE PRECIOUS POUCHES TO HER FRIENDS WITHOUT MY KNOWLEDGE. I WOULD HOPE THAT SOMEONE WATCHING EWTV MASS WOULD SEND YOU ONE.
MAY GOD BLESS YOU!

Father John Paul,
I watch EWTN Daily Masses regularly but I have missed your presence and your powerful, uplifting homilies for over a month. I wonder why you are not conducting the daily Masses. When will you return to the EWTN broadcasts?
Where is father John Paul Mary Zellar? I miss him so very much?
Please tell me that he’s coming back soon!!!!
Dear Fr. John Paul, On todays mass (8-2-21) you gave a homily about our very dear Franciscan Friars and their beginnings with St. Francis of Assisi. I was so very touched by it that I took a chance and asked my son when he got home from work to watch the homily with me. My husband who I had been with for 60 years passed 2 years ago so my 3 sons were no longer comfortable with me living alone. I am a practicing Catholic and EWTN has been a real saving grace to me, but even though my children were raised Catholic they will not take part in any thing to do with our church. Anyway my son actually said yes and sat and listened to your wonderful homily with me. Fr., he did not say one negative remark and I see hope in that. I am so grateful to all the priests and other contributors on EWTN. I pray for God’s blessing on all of you and all the dear sister and staff. I don’t know how I could have made it through the last couple of years without all of you.
