Today at Mass, the gospel centered on Martha and Mary. I’ve heard the details hundreds of times, but I still enjoy the story. Jesus entered a village where a woman whose name was Martha welcomed him. She had a sister named Mary who sat beside the Lord at his feet listening to him speak. Martha, burdened with much serving, came to him and said, “Lord, do you not care that my sister has left me by myself to do the serving? Tell her to help… Read more

It can be extremely challenging to recognize God’s presence in our daily lives. I have struggled with this for many years. The Mass Readings from the 16th Sunday in Ordinary Time are all about recognizing and appreciating the Lord’s constant presence. Abraham knew that the Lord was with him and so did Mary, as she sat at his feet and listened to his words. What about you? This week on The Gary Zimak Show, we’ll break open these readings and… Read more

For many people, finding joy seems like an impossible task. There always seems to be a problem to worry about or suffering to face. We know that joy is associated with Christianity, but it often seems totally out of reach. Here’s some good news. Because of the indwelling of the Holy Spirit, you already possess the joy you seek! It’s just a matter of tapping into it. I recently wrote an article for the National Catholic Register on 5 Ways… Read more

I Prayed… Recently, I had this problem and I brought it to the Lord in prayer. I believed that he would answer, but I didn’t know how or when. A few days passed, but nothing changed. I kept praying, confident that he heard me and knew that he would answer when the time was right. I can’t say that I was totally patient, but I tried. I waited patiently for the Lord; he turned to me and heard my cry. (Psalm… Read more

No matter how you spin it, waiting for God to answer our prayers can be difficult. We may never fully understand why the Lord makes us wait, but he always has a reason. Here are some thoughts I shared in my book – Stop Worrying & Start Living (2016, Dynamic Catholic). If you’re frustrated that God isn’t answering your prayers, check out this verse from the Book of Tobit… He was fifty-eight years old when he lost his sight, and after… Read more

From time to time, we’re all going to be afraid of something. And, since fear is a feeling, it’s not something you can control. That’s why the church teaches that feelings are morally neutral. When I speak at churches and conferences, I always make the point that we shouldn’t be afraid to be afraid. It doesn’t matter how you feel, but it does matter how you respond to that feeling. What do you do when you’re afraid? Worry Or Trust… Read more

The desire for happiness often results in an endless pursuit of money, possessions and success. We will never be truly happy, however, until we learn to be content with what we have. In this week’s episode of The Gary Zimak Show, I discussed five Biblical principles which will help you to be content. You’ll learn that, even if it doesn’t seem like it, you have plenty! If you can spare 30 minutes, listen to the show using the player below. As… Read more

Do Not Worry In the Sermon on the Mount, Jesus speaks extensively about worry. Rather than let me tell you why worrying is useless, I’ll let him tell you. He does a much better job than I ever could. Look At The Birds “Therefore I tell you, do not worry about your life, what you will eat or drink; or about your body, what you will wear. Is not life more than food, and the body more than clothes? Look… Read more

How Much Do We Really Need? Sometimes it seems like we can never have enough “stuff”. At what point should we be content with what we have and stop seeking more? Here’s what the Bible says: But godliness with contentment is great gain. For we brought nothing into the world, and we can take nothing out of it. But if we have food and clothing, we will be content with that. Those who want to get rich fall into temptation and… Read more
