He has produced several TV series for EWTN and written numerous books, his most recent book is Fatima for Today.
Fr. Apostoli will give a retreat for men and women Apr. 24-26 on the topic, Carrying Your Cross along with Christ. What did Jesus mean when He said, "Take up your cross and follow me"? Explore how baptism is only a beginning of one's coming to Jesus Christ for salvation and following Him. To come to Jesus Christ further means to die to self and sin and to become so desirous of Christ and His holiness that one will make any sacrifice for Him.

Each retreat includes meditations by the retreat master, and opportunities for silence, prayer, adoration and the Sacraments.
