On August 16, 2017, I will be launching a Kickstarter campaign for an exciting new project. It is a comic book based on the exciting adventures of the Last Monks of Skellig Michael, a community of monks who lived on a remote island off the coast of Ireland more than 1,000 years ago.
It is a project that is truly groundbreaking and has a very talented team behind it.

Immediately after St. John Paul II’s death, priests, bishops and even the next pope, started to give the deceased pontiff the title of “John Paul the Great.” While there are no particular criteria written down as to why a saint is labeled “the Great,” there are three virtues he possessed which gave him an extraordinary ability to imitate the example and teaching of Jesus Christ.
At first glance, however, these three virtues do not have any resemblance to “greatness” as the world would see it.
Following the suggestions of Michael Hyatt, I asked my good friends Jessie and Adam at BTC Photography to update my “headshot.” While using this photo on my website and social media, I will also use this photo on the back cover of my book on John Paul II.
They did a great job and helped achieve my goal. We chose the exterior of Saint Peter’s church in Stevens Point for the setting, which was fitting since John Paul II visited Saint Peter’s while touring Central Wisconsin.
Check out their portfolio! They are great photographers!
Finishing our series investigating the visit of future Pope John Paul II to a rural Polish community in Central Wisconsin in 1976, we conclude with a reflection on the impact of Cardinal Wojtyla’s visit.
The first time the people of Central Wisconsin were elated to have met Cardinal Karol Wojtyla was in 1978. Upon his election to the Chair of Peter, the bells were literally ringing across Central Wisconsin. Not only in the city of Stevens Point, but even as far as Independence at the church of Saints Peter and Paul the church bells rung loudly for at least a half hour. It was a proud day to be Polish, and there was celebration throughout the countryside.
Simple Polish farmers in rural Wisconsin had a friend; he also happened to be the Pope.
Simplicity. Humility. Holiness.
Continuing our series investigating the visit of future Pope John Paul II to a rural Polish community in Central Wisconsin in 1976, we pick-up the thread from our previous post and follow the Polish Cardinal as he celebrates Mass at a local high school as well as at St. Joseph’s Convent.
The Mass, originally scheduled to be celebrated on the grounds of the University, proved to be a highlight for many of the area Catholics. This was a rare chance to participate in a Mass with a “Prince of the Church” and so it brought together not only Catholics of Polish descent, but also any Catholics in the area who were free to attend. As a result, the high school gym was packed with seating both on the floor as well as in the bleachers. Undoubtedly this was the first Mass ever to be celebrated in the public school gym and assuredly was the last.After completing his academic lecture and speaking with the many attendees at the University of Wisconsin-Stevens Point, Cardinal Wojtyla was driven to the local public high school (Stevens Point Area Senior High) to celebrate a Mass at the end of a non-stop day of activity.
