Michael Voris Bio:

At 47, president and founder Michael Voris is among the generations

of Catholics which simply didn’t receive thorough and accurate

catechesis. His searching blue eyes reveal an intense desire to

change that. Trained in theology at the doctrinally-sound St.

Joseph's Seminary in New York, he has been known to put a

damper on cocktail parties with a discussion on the consequences

of sin. Kind and charming, he is likewise unyielding in

his mission of notifying others of the existence of both God and

Satan, and that salvation comes through Jesus Christ and His

Bride, the Holy Catholic Church.

After several years in seminary he discerned that his vocation

lay elsewhere, and spent years working as a CBS affiliate anchor

in various markets and won multiple Emmys for his work in

broadcast news production. The success he enjoyed in his career

did not mollify a growing understanding of the darkness

engulfing the secular media today. His experiences there provided

him with not only the technical knowledge to produce

excellent television programming, but a profound grasp of the

need to produce programs that leave the viewer improved spiritually

rather than just entertained.

On May 8, 2006 a new state-of-the-art digital television studio

was dedicated to the archangel who Scripture promises will lead

the victorious battle against Satan at the end of time (Rev

12:07). Located in an outwardly humble building a half mile

north of the city of Detroit, it is the production center of what is

hoped will be many high quality Catholic programs to be distributed

nationwide. The twofold purpose of these programs is

educating a generation of Catholics largely ignorant of Church

teaching and saving souls from eternal damnation.

Voris is the host of St. Michael's Media's first show, aptly called

The One True Faith. To date, 65 episodes have been completed and

are airing in various markets in the United States.

Tribute to a Hero

...On Saturday we went to Chicago for a dinner in honor of the great hero/founder of the Pro-Life Action League Mr. Joseph Scheidler! Before the actual dinner we joined the "Crusaders" of St. John Cantius (Br. Chad!) and marched over to the hotel with huge yellow "LIFE" balloons. The plan was to give Mr. Scheidler a "hollywood style" welcome (thus the sunglasses and prom dresses), not only because Mr. Scheidler is so awesome, but also because earlier in the week we got word that the pro-choicers were going to protest the dinner from outside. Because of security, we didn't get to be too close to the actual entrance to the hotel, so we rolled out the "red carpet" a little bit a away from the hotel's entrance. After he walked across the carpet, Mr. Scheidler stayed outside on the streets with his pro-life stop sign and stood with the Crusaders across the street from the "pro-choicers." I went inside with my Mom, Constance, and some of our Crusader friends who were going to the dinner, so we unfortunately missed that action. The rest of the Crusaders went on to walk around town singing pro-life chants during the dinner.

So, here's the jolly, happy as a hobbit video:

In his delightful way, Mr. Scheidler often says pro-life people are the happiest people. We are happy becuase we know we are doing the Lord's work. The pro-choicers are so full of hate that during the dinner they slashed the tires of the cars of the pro-lifers in the hotel parking lot. (The cars had pro-life bumbper stickers.) You can read a post in which they admit this here.

Mr. Scheidler has dedicated himself to the pro-life movement. For over 30 years he has been out on the streets protesting and showing America the gruesome reality of abortion. He's sacrificed jobs, was brought in front of the Supereme court by NARAL, sacrificed his home, he was even black balled by pro-life organizations for showing the truth. As mentioned countless times throughout Saturday evening, the pro-life movement would not be as strong as it is today if it was not for Mr. Scheidler. He
is truly the "Father of the Pro-life Movement" and my hero! It was an honor to be at his tribute dinner!
