Justin Fatica -Hard As Nails Ministry – EWTN

Friends,
It is with great pleasure that I am able to tell you about my friend Justin Fatica’s new show in EWTN.

Justin is going to be on the EWTN show Life on the Rock on Friday, August 27th from 9-10 pm ET. Then, starting on September 3rd, Thursday evenings, Justin will have a 30 minute show called “Your Amazing with Justin Fatica”. This is a ministry that has helped support Virtue First as they have spread the gospel message, and we are so excited at the future impact this will have on souls.

Here is a link to the trailer! https://vimeo.com/136974705

‘You’re Amazing With Justin Fatica’ – EWTN’s Newest Series for Youth and Families

Catholic Evangelist Justin Fatica wows a crowd!

He was the consummate bad boy, always doing his best to get into as much trouble as he possibly could. Junior year was the worst. While he had always made life miserable for his poor teachers, unfortunately, his disruptions in class weren’t the half of it. He also caused trouble outside of the classroom. At age 17, he had a life-changing moment, when he thought he got a girl pregnant.

“On the outside, I looked like a jerk,” he said. “Inside, I felt bad. I wanted to change.”

How does the worst kid in school end up giving his heart to Christ and starting an apostolate devoted to helping young people like himself discover how to deal with the hard issues that often are the root cause of such behavior? Discover how Justin now uses his deep understanding of youth to bring them to Christ in EWTN’s new series, “You’re Amazing With Justin Fatica.” Go on the road as Fatica journeys to venues across the country touching lives.

EWTN will air a 90-minute live show with Fatica and Producer Jeremy Rivera at 7 p.m. ET, Thursday, Aug. 27 that can only be seen online at www.youtube.com/ewtn and www.ewtn.com/amazing. Viewers are invited to send questions to Fatica at amazing@ewtn.com. The preview will be followed by Episode 1 of the new series at 8:30 p.m. ET on these same online sites.

The show will then settle into its regular time slot at 10 p.m. ET, Thursdays, beginning Sept. 3, on EWTN television.

After high school, Fatica went on to get both a bachelor’s and a master’s degree from New Jersey’s Seton Hall University. He also started a ministry with a few friends called the 12 Apostles Program, which not only helped young people understand how to have a relationship with Jesus, but how to explain their faith to others.

At age 22, Fatica launched the apostolate he leads today: “’Hard as Nails’ is all about living for Christ,” he says.

Fatica’s messages, which you will hear in his new EWTN series, are empowering:

Fatica wants his audience to know that “being broken isn’t some type of disease. We all need healing daily from Christ. I know I need it every day, not just once when I was a 17-year-old kid and first experienced the healing power of Jesus.” He wants people to know that bringing the Gospel to others isn’t complicated; that there is an urgency to this mission of saving souls; and that all of us have the authority we need to evangelize. “The authority is not in MY message, but in Christ’s message and the Church’s message. I hope they’ll see that there is power in being a witness.”

“You’re Amazing With Justin Fatica” premieres 8:30 p.m. ET, Thursday, Aug. 27 online at http://www.youtube.com/ewtn. It will be preceded by a 90 minute pre-show, also online.

Fatica especially likes to tell people whose lives are a mess: “Make your mess your message! A lot of people think their mess is the worst thing that ever happened to them, but it can be transformed into a powerful message to change the world. Jesus’ death was a tragedy but that led to the resurrection.”

Because of Jesus Christ, this man is now amazing – and Fatica’s hope and prayer is that we will all come to know how amazing we are in Christ. Don’t miss his powerful series, “You’re Amazing With Justin Fatica” both online and in its regular spot on EWTN television at 10 p.m. ET, Thursdays beginning Sept. 3 on EWTN, www.ewtn.com/channelfinder.
