The Medjugorje Center in Albuquerque will sponsor a fabulous speaker by the name of Ferdinand Roccanti. The event will be held at Our Lady of Guadalupe Catholic Church, 1860 Griegos Road NW in Albuquerque. At 6:30 p.m. Our Blessed Mother will be crowned and the rosary will be prayed after the coronation. Ferdinand's talk will begin after the rosary. After his talk Ferdinand will remain in the church to socialize with all who would like to meet him.
His testimony is simply remarkable and compelling. He was a millionaire who gave his millions away and ultimately became indigent to serve the Lord (at Our Lord's request). He suffers from a rare disabling disease, Myasthenia Gravis, which affects the nerve endings of his body, coupled with double vision and no depth perception. He is considered legally blind.
One day he heard Jesus prompting him to buy a canvas and brushes even though he had never painted in his life. In “Blind Faith,” he began to paint. His hands are miraculously moved by the Holy Spirit and "He" paints the most beautiful pictures, i.e., the Last Supper, many of Mother Mary, etc. As he paints, he prays and, as he prays, he draws closer to God. The result is a work of art!!
If you have an opportunity, you might want to go by the MIR Center located at 1915 Menaul Blvd, NE, Suite 5, to view or purchase his video (Blind Faith--$20.00). It will allow you to become acquainted with him prior to the June celebration. GOSPA pilgrims will view this video Saturday June 5 at 7:15 p.m at the San Clemente Parish hall after praying the unborn rosary.
Ferdinand’s prints of his paintings will be available for sale after his talk. You may also visit his website at Ferdinandart.com to purchase his prints but keep in mind that you will have to pay shipping costs. If you so choose, Ferdinand will sign your purchased prints. The MIR Center will also be selling religious and Medjugorje articles before and after the event to help offset some of their expenses. The MIR Center is responsible in bringing speakers to the Albuquerque area.
Be sure to join us on June 24, the Feast of St. John the Baptist, and meet this holy man in person. He has certainly been inspired by God himself.
If you have questions, please call the MIR Center at 505-880-0684. They are open Monday through Friday from 10:00 a.m. until 4:00 p.m.
P.S. Seating for the event will be on a first-come, first serve basis. No tickets will be sold. So come early! Tell your friends and family. All Through Mary to her Son Jesus, to the FATHER.
