Yesterday we had the bad news, now the good news.

It’s finally official. After several false starts this Saturday Aug 5th my new religious themed show Your Prayer intentions premieres on WQPH 89.3 Shirley/Fitchburg.

It’s going to be a taped show so if you have prayer intentions that you wish to have prayed for you can either use the contact page here. or you can email me directly herehere

However we are going to celebrate the launch of the first local show on our EWTN station show with a special Mass at the old Madonna of the Holy Rosary Church on Theresa Street In Fitchburg at 10:30 on Saturday followed by a bit of Pizza to eat and the show itself.

Meanwhile the plans for our Buffet Books and Bather event with Robert Stacy McCain in Leominster are continuing and tickets are still available here at Eventbrite.

And my on hand supply of my book has dwindled so much that I’ve had to order another case to accommodate people who want it and with the Madonna of the Holy Rosary Event this weekend and Madonna Della Cava next week I wouldn’t be surprised if I need another case before Stacy McCain gets here.

Of course it will take me selling 200 cases to replace a years pay, but if your nowhere near me I’ll be happy to have you order a copy from amazon here.

If you want an autographed copy, from me the Cost is $10 That covers both the book and the $2.63 it costs me to mail it at the book rate.

There are all good signs and show promise but the thing that is really going to make a difference is if the Layoff Bleg ends successfully, you can go here to see how we’re doing or kick in below.




Of course if you want an autographed copy of my book you can have one with your subscription to the site and in addition to the book you will get my weekly podcast emailed to you before it appears either on the site or at the 405media which graciously carries it.

Now if I could secure 100 new subscribers at $25 a month I can devote myself full time to the blog, the new radio show and a pair of book projects that I’d like to move forward on.

But all that’s up to you.

As longtime readers might know my radio show DaTechGuy on DaRadio ended three years ago and since last year it has been replaced by a podcast titled DaTechGuy off DaRadio which is still carried online by the 405media , emailed to subscribers when it’s done and available on this site (usually by Wednesday) by clicking on the fedora in the upper right corner.

What you might not know is two years ago I recorded a pilot series (under my own name Peter Ingemi) for WQPH 89.3 Catholic Radio on prayer called Your Prayer Intentions where I talk prayer and scripture and then pray.

This week I was informed by WQPH that they have decided to pick up the series and will be airing the already recorded and airing them Saturdays starting this weekend, consequently they will be wanting me to record new episodes as soon as practicable.

So keep an ear open for WQPH 89.3 on Saturdays and Catch Your Prayer Intentions and if you HAVE a prayer intention that you’d like me to pray for either on the air or off, email me here at prayerrequests at DaTechGuyblog dot com and I will include said intentions in my prayers during the show. If you have prayer intentions and do not want them aired but still want them prayed for make sure that is noted in your email.

As the naem of the show implies this show is all about souls and the church, there will be nothing political about it, but don’t worry, if you are looking for our insightful commentary concerning the events of the week DaTechGuy off DaRadio will still be carrying on with two hours of talk and thought for you to enjoy.

So keep an ear open for WQPH 89.3 on Saturdays and Catch Your Prayer Intentions.

Update: Dropped a character on that built in email link should be working now

The final day of Fr. Stephen Imbarrato of Priests for Life’s visit to Boston sponsored by WQPH and Prayers for life was the biggest.

He spent the morning with the little sisters of the poor before heading over to the Our Lady Queen of the Universe Shrine in Boston run by the sons of Divine Providence across from the Don Orione House.

It is an impressive shrine that both overlooks Boston and air airport from the top of the hill which is marked by a huge statue of our lady and a high tower overlooking the city

Before Father arrived to celebrate the 4:30 the assembled pilgrims took confession for Divine Mercy Sunday. After mass they assembled downstairs for Dinner where Fr. gave the blessing

Was introduced

and gave his final speech of the trip

I recorded it in two parts

I also managed to get a 2nd interview with Fr Emanuel whose 1st interview was cut off

and here are some assorted clips from the day

After dinner and the speech the party processed to the ground where there was a procession with the Pro-Life image of divine mercy (the wind did not play ball as it kept the candles unlit).

After the Rosary was complete a most unexpected twist took place.

The tower has been closed to the public for a full decade due to the need for repairs but we were informed that Fr. and the image of Divine mercy would be allowed to go to the top to bless and consecrate the city. We where however unable to enter through the front door as none of the keys were working.

So we made our way to an elevator that reached the tower that was normally locked out.

It was a tight fit with the image and the photographers and Fr Imbarrato

but we eventually made it to the top of the tower overlooking the city and Fr. prayed the consecration.

This brought an official end to the visit and Fr. Imbarrato sat for a final interview when it was all done.

There is one interesting footnote, both Mary Ann Harold and Fr. Imbarrato got a sense during the prayers that it was the desire of Our Lord and Lady to restore the Shrine. At the time it was built Boston was a faithful Catholic City and Massachusetts was a State known for it’s faith, as the Shrine has fallen into disrepair so has the faith of the city and the abominations that have come out of the state to affect the entire country and the world are too numerous to mention here.

So while I as always hope you might kick in a few buck to DaTipJar to make up for the cost of days of work missed and my time perhaps it might be a better use of your funds to raise the funds necessary to make this shrine what it once was, and perhaps help make Boston the city of faith it once was too.

During the 2nd day of Fr Stephen Imbarrato’s visit to Massachusetts after celebrating a mass and attending a breakfast in Medford he traveled to Fitchburg. We covered his Eucharistic Procession here but there were several other items of interest both before and after that event.

He said Saturday morning mass at St Camillus church at St. Bernard’s Parish in Fitchburg and sat for an interview after mass on the events.

Linda Santo who spoke the previous night in Medford attended this mass and also consented to an interview.

From there we went to Slattery’s in Fitchburg (home of that most perfect of deserts Kentucky Derby Pie) for a luncheon to a packed house, Fr briefly spoke there as well.

Next there came the procession viewed now online by over 200K people (for context the population of Fitchburg is 40k) after the procession we traveled to the former Madonna of the Holy Rosary parish where Fr. heard confessions, celebrated the divine mercy vigil mass followed by a dinner served by the Knights of Columbus of the St. Anthony of Padua counsel and a talk.

But the there was a pleasant surprise at both this dinner and the previous one. There was a band playing at both this event and the previous one in Medford. It turns out they were a group called Musicians for life and they not only performed old guitar staples of the faith like Mighty to Save during dinner

but after an introduction by Fr. Imbarrato also performed six original songs explicit pro-life songs written specifically for these event such as Let em Live: (which was streamed life to his facebook page)

Where have all the Children Gone

I’m Here with Jesus

Listen to my Heart Beating

It’s a life (which I think is a really catchy tune)

and the Choice is Yours

At the end of the night they sat for an interview

It would be their final performance during Fr. Imbarrato’s trip as they had a commitment the next day but if I may be so bold and suggest that they and their music would be a welcome addition to any Catholic or pro-life event.
