Pray Together for Renewal of Culture

The foundation of the VIRTUE WORKS MEDIA Ministry is prayer.  Since virtue, in its essence, is WHY and HOW we do things in a truly good way, it's not possible without a bit of God's grace. Our human efforts at self-mastery are super powered when we connect with God: appreciating His gifts and humbly asking for His help. This is true in our personal character. It is also true in the character of any organization. So, we invite you to pray with us. We pray for virtue to grow in each person's interior life. We pray that God will renew culture with reading, media and entertainment that strengthens the souls of all who consume it. And we pray for God to bless the Ministry of VIRTUE WORKS MEDIA to be an effective catalyst for both of those previous prayers. (Even our prayer is a circle story. We really are all about stories.)

Since the team behind VIRTUE WORKS MEDIA is a group of joyfully on-fire Catholics, we really value the role Jesus has given Blessed Mother Mary as a good mom to each son and daughter in Christ. Mary is known as #MotheroftheChurch . That includes people all over the world. We like having her as part of the prayer process. We imagine Mary's mantle, her veil, as a gorgeous blue protective force-field that we can wrap around us as a defense against evil. Let's wrap that mantle around the souls of spiritually vulnerable people all around the world. Throughout the centuries, Mary has miraculously appeared in different parts of the world inviting everyone to draw close to her Son Jesus. We will ask her to pray with us, and for us, under her various international names to protect children, teens, and families from  spiritually destructive reading, media, and entertainment.

Whether you pray with us officially or not, do consider praying regularly for the intention of a renewal of virtue in publishing, media and entertainment. We can trace the roots of so much interior destruction of so many lives to the consumption of toxic media. With God's grace, each life, each book, each movie and each nation can be renewed!
