Deacon Eddie Ensley PhD
When Deacon Ensley was studying to become a Protestant minister, something happened on his first visit to a small Catholic church that would forever change his life – he experienced the special presence of Christ in the reserved Blessed Sacrament. The series of “miracles” that occurred from that moment forward, that brought him into the Catholic Church, is a story that you will want to hear and then share with everyone you meet.
Deacon Ensley is one of the most gifted Catholic speakers today. His writings have been fervently recommended to the Church by spiritual giants like Fr. Benedict Groeschel and Richard Rohr OFM. Describing himself as “a miner in search of the forgotten riches of our Christian past” he conducts primary-source research into the vast and long Christian and Jewish history of spirituality.
Deacon Ensley is the author of six books including his most recent, “Letters From Jesus” by Twenty-third Publications (2011), “Visions” by Loyola Press Chicago (2000), and “Prayer That Heals Our Emotions” Harper/Collins (1988).
He is the author many articles and currently writes for Deacon Digest.
Holds a master degree in Catholic Pastoral Ministry from Loyola University, New Orleans and a doctorate in Clinical Pastoral Counseling from Cornerstone University..
He teaches courses in spirituality for Josephinum Diaconate Institute, “Pontifical College Josephinum”
