Full report from Chicago on the Michael Voris Majesty of the Faith Conference


A kinder, gentler Michael Voris shifts into “high gear”

by Doug Lawrence

At his latest “Majesty of the Faith” all-day conference, held Saturday April 30, in west suburban St. Charles, Illinois, Michael Voris of St. Michael’s Media and Real Catholic TV, spent relatively little time criticizing the modernist church, or taking to task errant bishops and priests. Instead, he offered the approximately 100 serious, dedicated Catholics in attendance, a finely crafted, highly nuanced and very powerful view of the glory and majesty of the ancient faith that we have come to call “Catholic”… as it was originally founded by He who IS the Majesty of the Faith … Jesus Christ … and handed down to us, by the apostles.

Mr. Voris did a masterful job of weaving together some 2000 years of Catholic scripture, tradition, and authentic church teachings, in a way that not only captured everyone’s attention (for about six hours, in total) but fully engaged their hearts and minds, as well.

Returning from our lunch break, a short Q&A session revealed an extraordinary and inspiring level of enthusiasm and curiosity from virtually all those assembled, who ranged in age from around 12 to almost 90 … some of whom traveled nearly a hundred miles, to get there.

To put it mildly, Michael’s timeless message of faith was received with enthusiasm and grace, by all. It was truly a beautiful thing to behold!

Just a few comments, from those who attended:

“The man speaks the truth!”

“We need to get Michael to come to our parish.”

“I never really understood the Bible, before today.”

“This is the kind of stuff that will really make Catholics come home!” 

The late Archbishop Fulton J. Sheen, one of Michael’s favorite Catholic theologians and speakers (and mine) would have been proud to have been there, to hear him. And perhaps he was!

As one of the sponsors of the event, I would like to thank Michael Voris for all his great work and dedication, all those who attended, all the other program sponsors, and especially, the Weber family, who really did all the “grunt work” of putting the whole thing together.

Real Catholic TV also offers a themed video series on “The Majesty of the Faith”, which can be viewed on your computer or smart phone. Visit the Real Catholic TV site.
