There’s no doubt that the Parable of the Unjust Judge (Luke 18:1-8) can be disturbing. Is Jesus really comparing our Heavenly Father to an unethical and uncaring judge? Not at all! What He’s trying to do is get our attention (mission accomplished!) and help us to realize the importance of persistent prayer. This week on The Gary Zimak Show, we break open the Mass readings for the 29th Sunday in Ordinary Time and learn about the POWER of PRAYER! Read more

I know what it feels like to face a desperate situation with little or no hope. Twenty-two years ago, my wife was pregnant with twins and we were informed that they only had a ten percent chance of being born alive. Because of the unceasing prayers of many people, Mary and Elizabeth are alive and healthy today. I absolutely believe that God still performs miracles. Earlier today, I received the following prayer request from a friend: Dear Gary, would you… Read more

The Gospel for the 28th Sunday in Ordinary Time (Luke 17:11-19) tells the story of Jesus healing ten lepers. Sadly, only one returned to thank him. The Lord’s words (“Where are the other nine?”) help to remind us of the importance of thanking God for our blessings. While this is a great takeaway (Heck, I even dedicated my weekly radio show to it!), there’s another message that is equally important. It’s so subtle, however, that you may have missed it…. Read more

When Jesus healed ten lepers, only one of them returned to thank Him. “Where are the other nine?”, He rightfully asked. Being thankful doesn’t come naturally for many people, but it can be learned. This week on The Gary Zimak Show, we unpack the Mass Readings for the 28th Sunday in Ordinary Time and explore ways to develop an attitude of gratitude. Once we become aware of God’s blessings, it’s much easier to become that one leper who said “Thank… Read more

Without a doubt, “Ask and you will receive” is one of Jesus’ best-known quotes. Even though his words are clear, however, they are often misinterpreted. Let’s take a closer look: “And I tell you, ask and you will receive; seek and you will find; knock and the door will be opened to you. For everyone who asks, receives; and the one who seeks, finds; and to the one who knocks, the door will be opened.” (Luke 11:9-10) It’s really tough to… Read more

I’ve often encountered people who expressed the opinion that God doesn’t care about the “little details”. To be honest, I find that thought to be very unsettling. I want him to be intimately involved with the details of my life. Fortunately, the Bible offers plenty of evidence that God really does care about the little details. I recently wrote an article about it for the National Catholic Register. Here are a few of my thoughts: A good place to begin… Read more

One day while visiting the village of Bethany, Jesus paid a visit to the home of his friend Martha. As she rushed around to serve him, she grew frustrated that her sister (Mary) was not helping. As a result, she blurted out the following: “Lord, do you not care that my sister has left me by myself to do the serving? Tell her to help me.” (Luke 10:40) When things go wrong or our prayers aren’t answered, we often accuse… Read more

I know what it’s like to feel hopeless. It may surprise you, but it happens to me frequently. I also know that feelings aren’t facts. On those days when my problems look insurmountable and all I see is darkness, I remind myself of the fact that all things are possible with God. Then I cry out to him and ask for help. Sometimes the feeling of doom doesn’t go away immediately, but I know he hears me. Eventually, my peace… Read more
