Author and Director of the Association of Marian Helpers Fr. Michael Gaitley, MIC, was a guest on "Franciscan University Presents," broadcast in April on EWTN.

The show, titled "Divine Mercy and Mary," includes host Michael Hernon, Dr. Regis Martin, and Dr. Scott Hahn. The wide-ranging discussion touches upon the revelations of St. Faustina, the Divine Mercy message and devotion, and how Mary teaches us to say yes to Christ's mercy.

Here's the full broadcast:

I'm curious. Why don't we learn about the other brothers and priests in the Marians? Why is there rarely anything about them on your websites? There used to be. In the last year or so, almost all I hear about from the Marian Fathers is about Father Gaitley. Aren't there any other members of this community? I've met some, even the head of it once (Fr. Chaz??). Everything now seems to be centered on Fr. Gaitley. I would like to find out more about the community, and not just one member.

Thank you so much for sharing this. Praise God for all the graces coming from this. Thank you, Fr. Michael, Felix for the labor of LOVE (using every way possible) to spread the Divine Mercy message as well as insights of how Our Lady is always helping us along the way for deeper relationship with Our Lord. Keeping you all in prayer.

Hi Jennifer. Thank you for sharing your concerns about the website. Please note a couple of things:

In the past few weeks alone we have featured Fr. Dan Cambra and the call for prayer for peace; Br. Chris Alar's final vows; renewal of vows of Marian seminarians; homilies by Fr. Kaz and Fr. Joe Roesch; and Fr. Gerald's work in Alaska. We try to maintain a balance.

Still, I understand your concern, but allow me to clarify the matter: Father Michael Gaitley now serves as the director of the Association of Marian Helpers. His frequent presence on the website is in many ways necessary as a means to update Marian Helpers on the work of the Association itself. (When Fr. Seraphim Michalenko was the director of the Association, he was a ubiquitous presence on the website as well.)

Just so you know. This fall we will begin a video series featuring Fr. Dan Cambra on the lives of the saints and probably other topics.

Thanks again for writing. Stay tuned.

God bless.

Thank you very much for your response and clarifications. Yes, I remember Fr. Serafim and was wondering what happened to him. God bless all the good works of the Marian Fathers. They are a blessing to the church. Someday I hope to visit the Divine Mercy Shrine. God bless!

This is an AWESOME video. Divine Mercy and Mary clearly stated and articulated. That's why I love supporting the Marians!

Thank you Editor for responding to Jennifer's comment, excellent response. I've been watching your site since the beginning and don't agree with her viewpoint. Writing a negative comment about a video created by Franciscan University that you're just sharing with us seems unfair and unnecessary. Thanks for posting!

Jennifer, I hope that you are receiving "The Marian Helpers Bulletin." Each issue carries an article on a Marian, sometimes men in formation, along with a Marian Helper. So we can get to know more of the members of this wonderful congregation. I personally love to hear vocation stories. It would be great to have a vocation story in each issue as wel.
