Father Benedict and Brother Martin

Over the years my wife and I have attended many retreats. One of our favorite retreat masters was Father Benedict Groeschel. I recently came across a story about a young man whose path in life was facilitated by Fr. Benedict. Stephen Ervin from Omaha is now Brother Martin of the Franciscan Friars of the Renewal. His story points out the benefit of spiritual guidance and the patience and hope of loving family members.

In 2004 Fr Benedict was seriously injured in an auto accident and near death in the emergency room. His revovery, in some way, is related to the prayers of thousands of people that his guidance had helped over the years.He has since returned to his minstry, TV show and the leadership of his community.
