Hi Prayer Warrior friends,
If anyone has it in their hearts to say some extra prayers for a stranger, a
friend of mine's niece in New Orleans needs a huge miracle or a great deal
of grace to carry an enormous cross. She has triplets who are about a year
old. She found out she is pregnant with another child. Last night the
triplets were crying and her husband went to get them. He was carrying all
three, tripped down some steps and fell. He did so in a way to save the
babies from injury but injured his leg in a severe way. He was taken to a
hospital where he was operated on and some complications occurred with his
heart. He is now on life support and not expected to live for more than a
He needs some kind of miracle. He is a chef in New Orleans and not of
great means. I know Our Lord with look mercifully upon any prayers you can offer.
Thanks and blessings to you all!

What a good week it has been!
I spent the week with my family (most especially my niece).
On Tuesday I met with Fr. Kyle and we were talking about the seminary and what is going to happen this fall.
I had to work on Wed. (not many people get paid to go swimming. I was cleaning the pool).
On Thursday I spoke at Theology on Tap in Dayton, and it was very interesting. I thought I was going to get punched, but luckily I didn't: http://christopherosgood.blogspot.com/2009/05/theology-on-tap_23.html
Also on Thursday, I went down to the seminary and had lunch with some of the men down there. I also spoke with Fr. Smith (the rector) about this fall. It went very well!
Then on Friday, I started heading down to Greenville, SC to stay with my friend for the weekend (it is the meeting point for all of us). The cool thing about the drive down, was that my sister and her friends where driving home from SC (her boyfriend graduated from basic), and we saw each other on the highway in NC, so we waved to each other. Tomorrow, we are all going to Charleston, SC for the beach! It is our last time together before most of us split off into different directions.
Since I have been down here, we have just hung out, gone swimming, fishing and eat (man do they love cooking and eating down in the south)!!!
Today, I went to St. Mary's Catholic Church for Mass. It was one of the most beautiful Masses I have gone to! After Mass, we came back to Jon's and watched a movie, then we went over and visited with Fr. Longenecker. (There will be pictures next week, when I have my laptop to put them on).
If you didn't see the pictures from graduation, you can see them here: http://christopherosgood.blogspot.com/2009/05/pictures-from-graduation.html
I won't be able to respond to your emails until next weekend. But I will be praying for you, and please pray for me!

I will say that the high-light of the talk was not anything I did or said, instead it was some angry guy that tried to disrupt everything. He came up front and asked if he could say something, and then went in the back and was yelling. He finally was kicked out. So please pray for him!
As soon as I figure out how to add talks on the blog, I will add it for you to listen to (if you so wish).
Well, I have to go. I am in South Carolina for the week, so there will be very little blogging (but that's not really different from normal).

Hey everyone! It has been a very busy week. I have traveled from VA to KY to OH.
On Monday I left Lynchburg and headed toward Louisville, KY for a fundraiser for Ignite Your Torch: http://christopherosgood.blogspot.com/2009/05/ignite-your-torch-auction.html
Tuesday was a very interesting day. It was some evangelism with a fallen away Catholic. Just some word of advice, if you tell me that you are a Catholic and not going to Mass, don't be a car salesman when I'm around: http://christopherosgood.blogspot.com/2009/05/tuesday-in-ky.html
On Wed. I was able to spend some time with good friends from Louisville. We had a lot of fun and went out to eat and then put-put.
Thursday I went to St. Catherine's (where IYT is going to be). Then I spent more time with friends at the community.
Throughout the week, I watched a number of different saint movies with my great aunt (all where very good)!
Friday I spent time with my family (mostly my niece).
Then on Saturday I spent my day at the Coming Home Network Conference on the Catholic Paul. It was very good! http://christopherosgood.blogspot.com/2009/05/catholic-paul.html
Now I am planning a trip to Charleston, SC with some friends!
- I am speaking this Thursday at 7pm at Theology on Tap in Dayton, OH.
- For safe travels for the trip to SC.
- For some friends that I have spent time with that really need God and help in their life!

It was very action pact and really good. They had Scott Hahn, Jeff Cavins, Marcus Grodi and Fr. Mitch Pacwa to name a few.
I think the highlight of the entire conference was Fr. Mitch's homily during Mass. It was amazing! He was talking about how many converts from Islam are coming into the Catholic Church! There are roughly 16,000 each day (mostly from Africa). The Church truly is alive!
Throughout the rest of the day, I spent some time with some good friends that I met at the last CHN Conference in Oct. Overall it was a great conference and a great day!
When I came home on Sat. night, I spent some time with old friends (from high school) and my sister (who turned 19).

I have an average of about 4 hours sleep for each night since last Friday (some because of being with friends, others from studying).
I haven't had time to eat nor shower in the last 2 days (I know its gross), but that's what you get when you are busy studying.
I have just finished packing and cleaning my room. It had to do be done by 7 tonight for inspection. I am now getting ready to take a quick shower before inspection (because I really smell).
Then I go to the Knights of Columbus meeting tonight, and then over to my friend's house to finish baking the cakes we started on last night (for the grad party).
I am so tired though. But, the good news is, I'M DONE WITH FINALS!!!
PS: I was told today by one of my professors not to worry about doing a homework assignment I was working on because I passed the course...lol.
Tuesday, May 5, 2009
Well, I am sick of studying and I am really tired, but I need to study more. So how do I get pumped up to study more? Being done for the year? No more homework? Graduation? Or something else...
Yes, the something else!!! All the other reasons are good, but this is the best! I have watched this before every test and it gets me PUMPED UP BABY!!!
If you watch it before a big event, make sure there are other people with you and start yelling at you (it works better, cause they are cheering for YOU)!!!

Greetings with the love of Christ!
I hope this letter finds you all very well. It is hard to imagine what a change I have gone through while attending Liberty University. I am now done with classes and have 2 finals coming up!
This has been a very busy week and this upcoming week will be just as busy. Not with the school work, but with saying the good-byes. I have been trying to spend as much time as possible with my friends here before we move on to bigger and better things.
On Monday I went down to Elon, NC for an interview and also to visit a good friend. We went out to dinner and had a great time catching up (I wish we would have been able to spend more time together this year, but it has been busy for the both of us).
On Tuesday they made me take down the swimming pool in the dorm room :-(. Also on Tuesday Josh spoke to the Catholic class at Liberty and did a great job! The students and the professor really enjoyed it! Thank you so much for the prayers!
Wednesday I received an email from my academic advisor saying that I couldn't graduate because my old advisor didn't transfer my govt. class right. Well, after spending 3 hours walking all over campus 3 times and talking to 6 people, we finally got it straightened out and I can graduate!
Thursday night a group of us snuck out of the dorms at 3 am and went to IHOP (it has been a tradition of mine every semester). It is actually funny because every time I do this (always during finals week) there are a ton of Liberty students there.
Then Saturday night I went the prison for the last time. It was really sad (most guys are happy to get out of prison, I on the other hand was sad to leave). It was a good service as always, but they moved us into a different room and we couldn't hear that good. Hopefully, next week they get the normal room.
Besides all of that going on, my entire week was spending time with friends. Sorry for the no posting on the blog last week. There prob. wont be any posts this week either, because there is no free time.
Remember the party is this Friday from 5-8 PM at St. Thomas More for anyone who wants to come: http://www.stmva.com/
- For Liberty University, there was a professor that died this week and some other professors have gotten in trouble.
- For the Catholics at Liberty.
- For friends who are looking for jobs.
- For finals.
- PRAISE: I AM GRADUATING!!!
