Gary Zimak To Host Spiritual Exercises On Following The Truth Radio Show
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Cinnaminson, NJ (February 22, 2012) – Popular Catholic lay evangelist and radio host Gary Zimak announced on Monday that he will be leading his Following The Truth listeners in the Spiritual Exercises of Saint Ignatius Loyola beginning on Monday, February 27, 2012. Following The Truth airs Monday-Friday at 8 PM Eastern on BlogTalkRadio, with podcasts available in the BlogTalkRadio archives and iTunes. In addition to making the announcement on his website (http://www.followingthetruth.com/the-spiritual-exercises-for-lent/), Mr. Zimak will be appearing on several network radio shows (EWTN Radio’s Son Rise Morning Show, Relevant Radio’s Morning Air and Ave Maria Radio’s Catholic Connection) during the week of February 21 to relay this important news to an international audience.
“This is a big undertaking”, Zimak observed, “and I don’t believe that something like this has been done before, but I felt the prompting of the Holy Spirit moving me to attempt it. Condensing a 30 day Ignatian retreat into a series of 30 minute radio programs is a challenge, but one well worth taking. I discovered some notes from the late Jesuit priest, Father John Hardon, and other material that will facilitate the process. Additionally, this effort will be under the patronage of Saint Ignatius and Father Hardon and I’m confident that their powerful intercession will make it a success.”
In September of 2011, Gary used his radio show to lead nearly 100 people in making the Total Consecration to Jesus through Mary (according to the method of Saint Louis de Montfort). “That was a life changing experience for many people, including me”, Mr. Zimak recalls. “I’m sure that this will also be a memorable Lenten experience for everyone involved and will help us to grow closer to Christ.” More details will be provided on the February 23-24 episodes of Following The Truth. Anyone wishing to participate is asked to email Gary (email@example.com) and put “Lent” in the subject. This will ensure that they receive any important links or updates to the Lenten program.
