Rocco Fortunato grew up Roman Catholic, but God had little part in his life. Television, movies, and disordered music attracted his heart to the life of sin they promoted. After years of living in mortal sin and believing he was beyond hope, Rocco was set free by the Precious Blood of Jesus Christ in sacramental Confession, experiencing the unfathomable love and mercy of Almighty God in a very PROFOUND way!!!
(Listen to Rocco’s interview–Partial Testimony–on Encounter Radio: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=D-XicIvlYTs)
Through Sacred Scripture, the Most Holy Rosary, daily Mass, and Eucharistic Adoration, he experienced a RADICAL CONVERSION!!! He’s been teaching, preaching, and/or writing on the fullness of the truth of the Catholic Faith since 1993. In 1995, Rocco founded Spread the Blaze (https://spreadtheblaze.com/), an apostolate dedicated to the conversion and sanctification of souls. He’s organized, led, and been the main speaker for Confirmation programs, Youth Groups, a Young Adult Group, a Men’s Group, Conferences, Retreats, a Street Apostolate, First Saturday Rosary Rallies, and served as Director of Evangelization. He’s also been on Catholic radio and had several television interviews.
Rocco runs a very unique Youth Group (Knights of Mary Immaculate) made up of middle-school and high-school youth including multi-cultural, homeschooled, inner-city, and special needs youth; he also runs a Young Adult Group (Crusaders of Mary Immaculate). In both groups, all souls are being challenged to become Saints through radical Marian devotion! These apostolates are leading souls into Holy Mother Church and helping those already there to grow in holiness.
His audio CD “God is Love” (https://spreadtheblaze.com/god-is-love/) and YouTube talks (https://www.youtube.com/spreadtheblaze) give ample testimony to his zeal for souls! To invite Rocco to share his love for Jesus, Mary, Joseph, and ALL things Catholic, please contact him at Spread the Blaze (https://spreadtheblaze.com/).
