[SOUNDS OF GUNSHOTS]

WELCOME TO THIS SPECIAL

EDITION OF THE 700 CLUB.

THAFTION AMATEUR VIDEOS OF SHOTS

RINGING OUT THIS MORNING OUTSIDE

THE NATION'S CAPITOL WHEN A

GUNMAN TURNED A BASEBALL FIELD

INTO A KILLING FIELD DURING A

PRACTICE FOR A IMRETIONAL

BASEBALL GAME.

AMONG THE SEVERAL INJURED CAN A

HIGH RANKING G.O.P. LEADER.

THERE IS SUPPORT FLOWING OUT

FROM CAPITOL HILL TO THE WHITE

HOUSE WHERE THE PRESIDENT

OFFERED PRAYERS IN HIS FIRST

MAJOR DOMESTIC CRISIS.

THERE IS TEAM COVERAGE TO BRING

YOU THE LATEST.

WE HAVE MORE ON THE MAN POLICE

SAY IS BEHIND THE SHOOTING.

Reporter: HERE IS WHAT WE

KNOW SO FAR, JOHN.

JAMES HODGKINSON WHO DIED IN

HOSPITAL TODAY WAS HIGHLY

CRITICAL OF PRESIDENT TRUMP AND

OTHER REPUBLICAN LEADERS ON

SOCIAL MEDIA.

POLICE ARE STILL INVESTIGATING

HIS POSSIBLE MOTIVATION.

HIS WIFE SAID HE HAD BEEN IN THE

D.C. AREA FOR THE LAST FEW

MONTHS BUT WAS EXPECTING HIM

HOME.

HE HAD BEEN IN TROUBLE WITH THE

LAW BEFORE.

GUNFIRE WAS REPORTED NEAR HIS

BELLEVILLE ILLINOIS HOME.

FOR MORE ON HOW THINGS PLAYED

OUT ON THE CRIME SCENE, HERE IS

BEN KENNEDY.

Reporter: A CONGRESSIONAL

BASEBALL PRACTICE TURNED VIOLENT

WHEN THE GUNMAN FIRED ON

LAWMAKERS.

FIVE PEOPLE WERE SHOT INCLUDING

LOUISIANA CONGRESSMAN STEVE

SCALISE.

HOW DID HE LOOK?

HE WENT DOWN QUICK.

HE WAS ONE OF THE FIRST SHOTS.

Reporter: FIRING DOZENS MUCH

ROUNDS, THE GUNMAN TARGETED

REPUBLICAN MEMBERS OF CONGRESS

PRACTICING HERE FOR THE ANNUAL

CONGRESSIONAL GAME.

POLICE IDENTIFIED THE SHOOTER AS

JAMES HODGKINSON.

I ONLY SAW HIM FOR A SECOND

OR TWO.

I SAW THE GUNMAN COME AROUND

TO THE BACKSTOP.

HE HAD A CLEAR LINE OF FIRE INTO

THE DUGOUT WHERE THE POLICE SAY

THEY ENGAGED IN GUNFIRE WITH THE

SUSPECT AND AT ONE POINT, TWO

OFFICERS WERE HIT.

HE EXCHANGED FIRE OVER THE

HOOD OF A CAR.

IT'S A FEELING OF

HELPLESSNESS WHEN YOU HAVE A

BASEBALL BAD AND THE GUY HAS A

RIFLE.

THESE POLICSLEESY WASSCALISE WAS DRAGGING HIMSELF

OUT.

HE DID GET HELP AFTER

OFFICERS SHOT AND KILLED THE

GUNMAN.

WHAT DID SCALISE SAY?

HE NEEDED WATER.

Reporter: HE WAS RUSHED TO

THE E.R. IN WASHINGTON WHERE HE

UNDERWENT SURGERY FOR A GUNSHOT

TO THE HEAD.

THEY CREDITED SECURITY DETAIL

FOR PLAYING A PART IF HELPING TO

STOP THE GUNMAN.

I BELIEVE THEY ACTED

HEROICALLY TODAY AND THEY'RE IN

GOOD CONDITION.

Reporter: AUTHORITIES ARE

WORKING TO UNCOVER THE MOTIVE

BEHIND THE ATTACK.

SENATOR BERNIE SANDERS CONFIRMS

HODGKINSON VOLUNTEERED FOR HIS

PRESIDENTIAL CAMPAIGN.

I AM SICKENED BY THIS

DESPICABLE ACT.

LET ME BE AS CLEAR AS I CAN BE.

VIOLENCE OF ANY KIND IS

UNACCEPTABLE IN OUR SOCIETY, AND

I CONDEMN THIS ACTION IN THE

STRONGEST POSSIBLE TERMS.

Reporter: INVESTIGATORS ARE

ALSO LOOKING INTO ANTI-TRUMP

POSTINGS ON THE GUNMAN'S SOCIAL

MEDIA ACCOUNTS FOR ANY OTHER

INFORMATION RELATED TO THE

SHOOTING.

I'M BEN KENNEDY, WASHINGTON.

THANKS, WE ARE GATING MORE

FIRSTHAND ACCOUNTS ABOUT THE

CHAOTIC SCENE AROUND THE

BASEBALL FIELD THIS MORNING.

ERIC REPORTS ON HOW IN THE MIDST

OF CONFUSION AND CARE, MANY

TURNED TO CALL ON GOD.

THEY WERE YELLING TO THE

CONGRESSMAN WHO WAS DOWN TELLING

HIM NOT TO MOVE.

AT THE TIME OF THE SHOOTING,

NOAH WAS IN THE DOUG PARK NEXT

TO THE FIELD.

AS SOON AS HE HEARD THE SHOTS

RING OUT, HE HIT THE GROUND.

THEY WERE HITTING OFF THE

GRAVEL.

YOU COULD HEAR THE SHOTS HITTING

THE FENCE.

I WAS RIEG TO GET AS FLAT AS --

I WAS TRYING TO GET AS FLAT AS I

COULD.

Reporter: THERE IS WHERE

CONGRESSMAN SCALISE WAS SHOT.

ONCE THE GUNMAN WAS CAPTURED,

PEOPLE CAME TO HIS RESCUE.

YOU COULD SEE PEOPLE RU RUN --

RUNNING ACROSS THE STREET TO GET

OUT OF THE WAY.

Reporter: AS THE GUNFIRE

CONTINUED, DAVE MILLER TRIED TO

GET THOSE IN NEED TO HIS DOOR

AND UP TO THE SECOND FLOOR.

THEY WERE OKAY BUT EMOTION

PULSING THROUGH THEIR VEINS.

Reporter: THE U.S. CAPITOL

POLICE CHIEF PRAISED HIS TEAM.

OFFICERS ACTED HEROICALLY

TODAY.

THEY'RE IN GOOD CONDITION AND WE

LOOK FOR A RAPID.

WE CAN HAVE DIFFERENCE OF

OPINIONS ON VARIOUS POLITICAL

TOPICS, BUT VIOLENCE SHOULDN'T

BE PART OF IT.

Reporter: LOCAL PASTORS

SHOWED UP QUICKLY TO PROVIDE

PRAYER AND SUPPORT.

AN ATTACK ON ONE OF US IS AN

ATTACK ON ALL OF US.

[APPLAUSE]

Reporter: ON CAPITOL HILL

SPEAKER PAUL RYAN THANKED THE

SPECIAL AGENTS BY NAME.

WE'RE PRAYING FOR THOSE

ATTACKED AND FAMILIES.

STEVE SCALISE, MATT MIKA.

SPECIAL AGENT DAVID BAILEY.

CBN NEWS.

AS WE MENTIONED EARLIER,

WE'RE COVERING THE STORY.

FROM THE LATEST, WE TURN TO

ABIGAIL ROBINSON.

WHAT DO YOU HEAR FROM MEMBERS OF

CONGRESS?

WE'VE -- THEY WERE AT THE

BASEBALL FIELD AND SAID THIS

MORNING, IF THEY WERE NOT THERE,

THERE WOULD HAVE BEEN A

MASSACRE.

IT'S BEEN A SOMBER DAY ON THE

HILL.

THE HOUSEFonL CANCELED ALL VOTES

THIS AFTERNOON.

THEY HEARD FROM PAUL RYAN AND

NANCY PELOSI.

NANCY PELOSI EVEN REFERRED TO

SPEAKER RYAN'S SPEECH AS

BEAUTIFUL AND WANTED ALL TO TAKE

A LOOK AT WHAT THEY SAID.

WE ARE UNITED IN OUR SHOCK,

UNITED IN OUR ANGUISH.

AN ATTACK ON ONE OF US IS AN

ATTACK ON ALL OF US.

[APPLAUSE]

I PRAY FOR DONALD TRUMP THAT

HIS PRESIDENCY WILL BE

SUCCESSFUL AND HIS FAMILY WILL

BE SAFE.

BECAUSE WITHOUT FAMILY WE ARE

CALLED FOR A PURPOSE TO THIS

BODY.

IT'S A GREAT THING.

WE KNOW WHAT IT MEANS TO EACH OF

US TO SERVE AND WE RECOGNIZE

THAT IN OTHERS.

WHAT IS NEXT?

IS THERE ANY SPECULATION ON

SECURITY CHANGES FOR MEMBERS OF

CONGRESS GOING FORWARD?

Reporter: TODAY HOUSE MEMBERS

HAVE SAID IT'S NOT THE DAY TO

TALK ABOUT THAT.

THAT IS A CONVERSATION TOMORROW

AND THE COMING WEEKS.

THEY WERE SUPPOSED TO BE A

HEARING FOR THE 2018 BUDGET.

TODAY IS NOT THE DAY TO TALK

ABOUT THE BUDGET.

HE SAID INSTEAD THE LAWMAKERS

CONVERSATION HAS BEEN ABOUT THE

DEATH THREATS THAT LAWMAKERS AND

THEIR FAMILIES FACED

PARTICULARLY IN THE LAST COUPLE

OF MONTHS.

THE TONE OF THE NATION RIGHT

NOW, HE SAID THIS MORNING, WE

GOT A SENSE FOR WHAT HAPPENS,

PEOPLE WHO HAVE THE ANGER ACT ON

IT.

HE SAYS IT'S ENCOURAGING THAT

THERE HAS BEEN A LOT OF PRAYER

AROUND THE CAPITOL TODAY.

THERE WERE THREE ORGANIZED

PRAYER EVENTS FOR THE MEMBERS.

THE SENATOR SAID AS HE WALKED

THROUGH THE HALLS TODAY HE HEARD

PEOPLE PRAYING, PRAYING FOR THE

VICTIMS AND COUNTRY.

THAT WAS ONE ENCOURAGING THING

TO HEAR TODAY.

ABIGAIL, THANK YOU.

TURNING NOW TO JENNIFER ON THE

OTHER END OF PENNSYLVANIA

AVENUE.

WHAT IS THE REACTION AT THE

WHITE HOUSE?

Reporter: SECURITY WAS

TIGHTER HERE AT THE WHITE HOUSE

THIS MORNING AS SECRET SERVICE

WORKED TO DETERMINE WHETHER OR

NOT IT WAS AN ISOLATED EVENT.

PRESIDENT IS ALWAYS QUICK TO

PRAISE LAW ENFORCEMENT, HE SAYS

MANY MORE LIVES WOULD HAVE BEEN

LOST WERE IT NOT FOR THE BRAVE

CAPITOL POLICE OFFICERS WHO TOOK

DOWN THE GUNMAN DESPITE THEM

BEING SHOT.

THE PRESIDENT CALLED FOR UNITY

IN THE FACE OF THIS EVIL ATTACK.

President Trump: WE MAY HAVE

OUR DIFFERENCES, BUT WE DO WELL

IN TIMES LIKE THESE TO REMEMBER

THAT EVERYONE WHO SERVES IN OUR

NATION'S CAPITAL IS HERE

BECAUSE, ABOVE ALL, THEY LOVE

OUR COUNTRY.

WE CAN ALL AGREE THAT WE ARE

BLESSED TO BE AMERICANS.

THAT OUR CHILDREN DESERVE TO

GROW UP IN A NATION OF SAFETY

AND PEACE.

AND THAT WE ARE STRONGEST WHEN

WE ARE UNIFIED.

AND WHEN WE WORK TOGETHER, WITH

WITH -- FOR THE COMMON GOOD.

Reporter: AS WE OFTEN DO

INSTINCTUALLY AFTER THE ATTACKS,

THE PRESIDENT CALLED FOR US TO

CHERISH THOSE THAT WE LOVE AND

REMEMBER THE LAW ENFORCEMENT

OFFICERS WHO WORK EVERY DAY TO

KEEP US SAFE.

THANKS JENNIFER.

THIS ISN'T THE FIRST TIME A

GUNMAN HAS ATTACKED MEMBERS OF

CONGRESS.

AS THE CULTURE CHANGES AND ANGER

RISES, COULD ATTACKS LIKE THESE

BECOME MORE COMMON?

Reporter: TERRORISTS ATTACKED

MEMBERS OF CONGRESS BEFORE.

IN MARCH 1954, LEFTIST PUERTO

RICAN NATIONALIST OPENED FIRE ON

REPRESENTATIVES OF THE 83RD

CONGRESS INSIDE THE CAPITAL

BUILDING.

A REPRESENTATIVES WERE INJURED,

NONE KILLED.

THIS TIME A GUNMAN TARGETED ONLY

REPUBLICAN MEMBERS OF CONGRESS

ON A BASEBALL GROUND.

IT SEEMS WE NOW LIVE IN A AGE

AND CULTURE WHERE VIOLENCE ARE

COMMON PLACE.

THIS VIDEO AS A CLOWN AND SHOWED

SNOOP DOGG SHOOTING HIM.

MADONNA SAID SHE WAS OUTRAGED

ABOUT TRUMP'S ELECTION.

I HAVE THOUGHT A LOT ABOUT

BLOWING UP THE WHITE HOUSE.

Reporter: AND LAST FEBRUARY,

THE UNIVERSITY OF CENTRAL

FLORIDA SOCIALIST CLUB

ENCOURAGED CHILDREN TO BURN IN

EFFIGY.

ONE SHOUTED KILL PRESIDENT

TRUMP.

AND WHO COULD FORGET KATHY

GRIFFIN HOLDING UP THIS.

OR A NEW YORK PLAY ADVOCATING

FOR ASSASSINATION.

THEY WONDER WHY SOME PEOPLE

EXPLODE.

WE TURN NOW FOR DAVID BRODY.

THERE WAS A LOT OF ANGER AND

FRUSTRATION.

THERE IS A SENSE THIS HAS BEEN

BREWING FOR A WHILE.

IF YOU THINK ABOUT IT, THERE

IS A LONG LIST HERE.

ALL OF THESE TOWN HALLS WE HEARD

ABOUT, ALL THE VITRIOL, THAT IS

PART OF IT.

RERT G. O.P -- REMEMBER THE G.O.P.

OFFICE IN NORTH CAROLINA GETTING

BOMBED?

THERE WAS A CONGRESSMAN FROM

TENNESSEE WHO HAD HIS CAR

ASSAULTED.

THE CAR THEY WERE BANGING ON THE

CAR AND A WOMAN IN TENNESSEE WAS

CHARGED WITH RECKLESS

ABANDONMENT OF A CAR.

THIS HAS BEEN GOING ON FOR A

WHILE.

KATHY GRIFFIN, WE KNOW ALL ABOUT

THAT.

AND OF COURSE THE MASK OF DONALD

TRUMP AND THE BLOODY HEAD.

IT WAS SOMETHING VERY

DISTURBING.

I THINK THAT STARTED TO WAKE UP

FOLKS EVEN MORE.

THEN OF COURSE, AS GARY POINTED

OUT, THE PLAY, THERE YOU SEE IT

THERE, THE BLOODY DEPICTION OF

DONALD TRUMP ON STAGE AS JULIUS

CAESAR, IT'S BEEN MESSY FOR A

WHILE.

THERE IS A LOT OF DIVISION IN

THE COUNTRY.

WHAT WENT WRONG?

I THINK IT STARTED IN THE

BILL CLINTON YEARS.

BILL CLINTON HAD HIS SHARE OF

SCANDALS TO BASICALLY MAKE SURE

THAT EVERYONE KNEW ABOUT THEM

AND THAT'S WHEN THE VITRIOL

BEGAN.

THEN GEORGE W. BUSH THERE WAS

THE CONTROVERSY WHETHER HE WAS

THE LEGITIMATE PRESIDENT.

IT WAS PAYBACK TIME FOR

DEMOCRATS AND BARACK OBAMA

REPUBLICANS NOT HAPPY AT ALL AND

HERE WE ARE WITH DONALD TRUMP

WHICH IS ALL OF THIS ON

STEROIDS.

WHAT IS THE FIX?

IT'S HARD.

I WILL SAY THIS, AT SOME POINT,

WE'VE HEARD ALL THE FLOWERY

STATEMENTS TODAY WITH NANCY

PELOSI AND PAUL RYAN.

TO KNOW THAT JESUS IS ON THE

THRONE IS THE MOST IMPORTANT

THING.

THAT IS MOST IMPORTANT.

MEMBERS OF CONGRESS SAY THEY

PLAN TO PROCEED WITH TOMORROW'S

CONGRESSIONAL BASEBALL GAMES AN GAMES AS

AN ACT OF DEFIANCE AGAINST THE

GUNMAN.

WE'LL BE BACK WITH MORE AFTER

THIS.

Gn: M

MORE THAN HALF A MILLION

AMERICANS ARE CURRENTLY

HOMELESS.

ONE MANNS SAW THE PROBLEM AND CAMEE

UP

WITH A SOLUTION.

WITH A SOLUTION.

BUILD THEM TINY HOMES.

HIS IDEA HAS SPREAD NATIONWIDE.

WHILE MANY HOMELESS ARE THANKFUL

TO HAVE A PLACE

TO CALL THEIR

OWN, NOT ALL COMMUNITIES ARE

HAPPY ABOUT IT.ENE

Reporter: THE HOMELESS

POPULATION IN LOS ANGELES COUNTY

RECENTLY SOARED 23% OVER THE

LAST YEAR.

4,000 HOMELESS BLOCKS FROM

CITY HALL, UNFORTUNATELY, THAT'ST

A SMALL PERCENTAGE OF THE CITY'S

HOMELESS POPULATION.

Reporter: ACCORDING TO THE

L.A. TIMES, THE STARTLING JUMP

HASHE TOUCHED EVERY SIGNIFICANT

GROUP INCLUDING YOUTH, FAMILIES,

VETERANS AND CHRONICALLY

HOMELESS.

IN 2015, ELLIS SUMMERS WENT

HOMELESS HIMSELF START TACKLINGG

THE PROBLEM ONE TINY HOUSE AT A

TIME.

IT ALL STARTED AFTER HE BECAME

FRIENDS WITH IRENE MCGEE BETTER

KNOWN AS SMOKY.

IT'S HARD.

PEOPLE TALK CRAZY TO YOU AND

KIDS ARE MEAN TO YOU.LD

LOOK AT THAT OLD WOMAN PUSHING A

BASKET.

Reporter: SHE HAD BEEN

HOMELESS FOR 10 YEARS FOLLOWING

THE LOSS OF HER HUSBAND.

ONE DAY, I KNOW YOU SAID YOU

LIVED DOWNN THE STREET BUT WHERE?

I MADE HER WALK ME DOWN AN SHOW

ME.

IT WAS ONE OF THE HOUSES DOWNOUS

THE STREET LIKE A STRIP OF DIRT

NEXT TO THE HOUSE AND A BROKENAND

CHAIR.

SHE WAS LIKE, I SLEEP OVER

THERE.

I'M LIKE, WELL, WHERE OVERR

THERE?

RIGHT BY THE CHAIR.

JUST, YOU KNOW, IT JUST GOT TO

ME. MO

Reporter: THAT MOVED SUMMERS

TO BUILD SMOKY A PLACE SHE COULD

CALL HOME.BUIL

HOW ABOUT IF I BUILT YOU A

MINI HOUSE.

SHE SAID WHEN IS IT GOING TO BE

READY?

I WENT WH TO HOME DEPOT AND BOUGHT

500 BUCKS OF WOOD AND THREW IT

ON THE GROUND AND WENT OKAY.

BUILD A TEENY HOUSE.

Reporter: IT TOOK FIVE DAYS

TO BUILD A 3 X 8-FOOT HOUSE.

VIDEO WENT VIRAL.

SINCE THEN HE'S RAISED $100,000

TO BUILD MORE HOUSES FOR PEOPLE

IN HIS COMMUNITY.

EACH OF THE HOMES HAS AN ACTUAL

ADDRESS LISTED ON THEM GIVING

THE PEOPLE A SENSE OF OWNERSHIPRS

AND SECURITY.HI

THAT'S WHAT PEOPLE WANT.

A PLACE TO REST THEIR HEAD.

I PUT AN ADDRESS ON THERE TO

MENTALLY HELP.

Reporter: CBN NEWS WAS THERE

WHEN HE PRESENTED THIS HOMELESS

MAN A PLACE TO CALL HIS OWN.

THIS HOUSE IS YOURS.

COME AND TAKE A LOOK.

I EVEN PUT SOME MARINE FLAGS IN

IT FOR YOU.

IF SOMEONE OPENS THE WINDOW --

[ALARM]

Reporter: SOME LOCAL

GOVERNMENTS AROUND THE COUNTRY

ARE USING THIS METHOD TO HELP

THEIR HOMELESS. TO

FROM CHICAGO TO PORTLAND, OREGONFR

WHERE THE IDEA HAS GROUND TO

TINY VILLAGES. I

NOW IN L.A., THEY SEE THE SMALL

HOUSES AS NUISANCES WITH SOME

SAYING THEY POSE HEALTH AND

SAFETY RISKS.

THESE WOODEN SHACKS ARE NOT THE

REAL ESTATE I'M LOOKING FOR IN

MY DISTRICT.

COUNCILOR PRICE SAID I'M GETTINGGETT

COMPLAINTS FROM CONSTITUENTS.

EARLIER THIS YEAR, THE CITY

COUNCIL MOVED TO SEIZE THE HOMES

WITHOUT NOTICE.VIDE

HE MANAGED TO MOVE EIGHT OF THEM

TO FAITH COMMUNITY CHURCH, BUT

THE PEOPLE WHO LIVED IN THEM

WERE ONCE AGAIN ON STREET. W

ITHO WAS LIKE WATCHING LI LINUS

AND PEANUTS DRAG THE BLASMGHT -- BLANKET

AWAY.

IT HURTS MY HEART HOW THERS

CITY HAS BEEN TAKE THE HOMES

FROM THE HOMELESS AND WANTING TO

DESTROY THEM IF THEY DIDN'T HAVE

A PLACE TO PUT THEM.

WE'RE GOING TO SEE IF WE CAN GET

PROPERTY TO SET UP THE HOME AND

SET UP A HOMELESS ENCAMPMENT.

Reporter: AFTER MONTHS OFene:

BACKLASH AN MEDIA ATTENTION, THE

CITY IS DEVELOPING A PROCESS TO

WORK WITH NONPROFIT GROUPSPS,

INCLUDING SUMMERS TO HELP THOSE

LIVING ON STREET.

MEANWHILE, SMOKY RECENTLY PASSED

AWAY.

SHE WAS A WONDERFUL HUMAN

BEING.

SHE WAS MY FRIEND.

Reporter: HER MEMORY, SAYSLP

SUMMERS, MOTIVATES HIM TO HELP

OTHERS.

I CAN'T CHANGE THE WORLD, BUT M

I CAN CHANGE THE WORLD AROUNDAROU

ME, THAT'S WHAT I'M TRYING TOTR

DO.

IO D HOPE THAT, YOU KNOW, IN THE

PROCESS, IT INSPIRES OTHERYO

PEOPLE, YOUU KNOW, TOewJUST TAKE A

SECOND AND BE BETTER.

Reporter: CBN NEWS COMPTONI,

CALIFORNIA.

I FOR ONE AND IMSPIRED.

LET AS MAKE THE WORLD AROUND USAN

A BETTER PLACE.

WHEN YOU LOOK AT THE NUMBERS,

500,000 HOMELESS AND YOU START

CRUNCHING THE NUMBERS ON THAT,

WHAT DOES THAT MEAN FOROOMS

EMERGENCY ROOMS?

FOR POLICE?

WHAT DOES IT MEAN?

NOT JUST FOR THE PEOPLE WHO ARE

HOMELESS, BUT ALL THE OTHER

SOCIAL SERVICES.

WHEN YOU CRUNCH THOSE NUMBERS,

YES, LET'S PROVIDE HOUSING FOR

THE HOMELESS.

LET'S DO OUR PART TO SEE HOW WE

CAN GIVE THEM A HOPE AND A

FUTURE.

AND I LOVE WHAT HE SAYS, SHE'S

MY FRIEND, SHE'S A WONDERFUL

HUMAN BEING.

WHEN YOU SEE PAST THE DESPERATE

POVERTY AND DESPERATE SITUATION,

WHO CAN BE MY FRIEND.

THAT'S WHEN ACTION REALLY

STARTS.

WHEN OUR CONSCIENCES ARE SO

SEERED THAT OUR COMPLAINT IS WETR

HAVE TO WALK AROUND AN 8:00 X.

4-FOOT HOUSE.PRAY

UP NEXT, HOW THE PRAYERS OF A

NUNN AND COHE HAD RETREAT

LAUNCHED A MOVEMENT.

I BEGAN TO TREMBLE AND THINK

GOD IS HERE.

EVERYTHING CHANGED AT THAT

POINT.

THOSE WHO WERE THERE TELL US

HOW THE CATHOLIC CHARISMATIC

MOVEMENT BEGAN.

DON'T GO AWAY.

Gordon: 50 YEARS AGO,

25 COLLEGE STUDENTS AND

PROFESELDER

50 YEARS AGO THERE WAS A

PRAYER MEETING AT A RETREATREAD

OUTSIDE PITTSBURGH.TODA

WHAT HAPPENED THERE SPREAD

AROUND THE WORLD.

TODAY THERE ARE MORE THAN 100

MILLION CATHOLIC CHARISMATICS

AND NONE OF IT WOULD HAVE

HAPPENED WITHOUT PRAYERS FROM A

NUNN FROM THE 19TH CENTURY.

SISTER ELANA PRAYED TO GOD

AGAIN AND AGAIN.OF

FATHER, IN THE NAME OF JESUS,

RENEW THE WORLD.

FATHER IN THE NAME OF JESUS.

SHE WAS LIKE A PROFITESS.

AS THE WORLD STOOD POISED TOR

ENTER THE 20TH CENTURY, HER

PASSION FOR THE HOLY SPIRIT

WOULD SPREAD FAR BEYOND THE

WALLS OF HER SMALL ORDER.

ELANA WAS DEVOTED TO HER FAITH

FROM A YOUNG AGE AND ESTABLISHED

HER OWN CONGREGATION IN 1866 TO

EDUCATE YOUNG WOMEN.

ELANA SAID THINGS ABOUT THE

HOLY SPIRIT LIKE IF ONLY, IF

ONLY WE WOULD SEEK HIM, IF ONLY

WE WOULD PRAY TO HIM, HE WOULD

SURELY COME.

Reporter: BETWEEN 1895 AND

1903, SHE PENNED 12 CONFIDENTIAL

LETTERS TO POPE LEO XIII.

SHE LED HIM TO THE UPPER ROOM.

ELANA WANTED THE CHURCH TO

EXPERIENCE A PERPETUAL

PENTECOST.

THE POPE TOOK IT SERIOUSLY

AND RESPONDED.

POPE LEO CALLED FOR A SPECIAL

TIME OF PRAYER EACH YEAR BETWEEN

ASCENSION DAY AND PENTECOST. CAR

THE BISHOPS AND CARDINALS LOST

PASSION FOR THE SPECIAL PRAYERS,ELAI

BUT ELANA DID NOT.

SHE ENCOURAGED THE POPE TO TEACH

MORE FULLY ON HOLY SPIRIT.

THE LETTER EMPHASIZES THEMP

DWELLING AND MIRACULOUS POWER OF

THE HOLY SPIRIT.MARL

A LANDMARK DOCUMENT ON THEHE

HOLY SPIRIT I LOOKED BACK TODAY

AS A MILESTONE OF WRITING ON THE

HOLY SPIRIT.

Reporter: STILL NOTOTr: S

SATISFIED, ELANA URGED POPE LEO

TO INVOKE THE HYMN "COME HOLY

SPIRIT."

THE POPE WENT INTO THEAS

ST. PETER'S HOLY BASILICA AND

SAID, COME CREATOR SPIRIT.

HE SOLEMNLY DEDICATE AND

CONSECRATED THE 20TH CENTURY TOHE H

THE HOLY SPIRIT.

AT THE SAME TIME, JANUARY FIRST,

1901 IN KANSAS, THERE WAS THES,

OUTPOURING OF THE HOLY SPIRIT

UPON THE GROUP THERE GATHERED AT

THE BETHEL BIBLE SCHOOL.

Reporter: AGNES, A STUDENT ATorte

THE BIBLE SCHOOL RECEIVED THEED T

BAPTISM AND HOLY SPIRIT AND SPO

SPOKE IN TONGUES LATE NEW YEAR'S

DAY.

HER EXPERIENCE ECHOED BY SEVERAL

OTHER STUDENTS SPARKED THE

MODERN PENTECOSTAL MOVEMENT.

YOU SEE THIS AMAZING

CONVERGENCE OF PRAYER TO THE

LORD FOR A NEW COMING OF THECO

HOLY SPIRIT.

IT'S INTERESTING THAT

SOMETHING H HAPPENING IN ROME WITH

THE POPE CALLING DOWN THE HOLY

SPIRIT AND IN TOPEKA, KANSAS, WE

HAVE THE BEGINNING OF THEGINN

PENTECOSTAL MOVEMENT.E

IT'S INTERESTING HOW THE LORD

BEGAN THE 20TH CENTURY BY

POURING OUT HIS HOLY SPIRIT THAT

WAY.E

BY 1906, MEMBERS OF THE BIBLE

GROUP LEADING THE AZUZA STREET.

WE OWE A GREAT DEBT TO OUR

PROTESTANT BROTHERS AND SISTERS.

Reporter: SISTER ELANA'S

PRAYERS BORE FRUIT WHEN WHITE

SMOKE CAME OVER SIGNALING THE

ELECTION OF POPE JOHN XXIII.

AS WE SEE THE HOSTILITY THAT

IS GROWING IN OUR CULTURE,

PEOPLE REALIZE, IF WE KEEP ON

DOING BUSINESS AS USUAL, IT'S

NOT GOING TO WORK WHERE THE IN

1962, POPE JOHN CALLED A COUNCIL

CALLED VATICAN II HOPING TO PAVE

THE WAY FOR CHRISTIAN UNITY.

HE ASKED CHRISTIANS TO JOIN HIM

AND ECHO HIS PRAYER TO THE HOLY

SPIRIT.

HE WAS LOOKING FOR ENERGY, HE

WAS LOOKING FOR POWER FROM ON

HIGH AND LOOKING FOR GOD TO DO FO

SOMETHING.

LOOKING FOR A NEW PENTECOST.

HE ANTICIPATED THAT VATICANED

II WAS GOING TO OPEN THE WINDOWS

OF THE CHURCH TO THE HOLY SPIRIT

AND APPARENTLY TO SIGNS AND WO

WONDERS. Rep

POPE JOHN PASSED WAY IN 1963

BEFORE VATICAN II CONCLUDED.

HE WAS SUCCEEDED BY THE NEW

POPE.

STUDENTS TOOK TO THE STREETS IN

PROTEST.ENTS

TURBULENCE RULED THE DECADE.UL

AT THAT POINT,EN A LOT OF

PEOPLE WERE QUESTIONING

EVERYTHING.STIO

AND QUESTIONING GOD.

Reporter: DAVIDIDMA MANAGE MANGENIC

BELONGED S TO A GROUP OF STUDENTS

WHO MET BEFORE CLASSES TO PRAY

AND READ SCRIPTURES.ECOS

SWITCHBLADE" BY A PENTECOSTAL

MINISTER AND BROUGHT DRUG

ADDICTS TO HEALING AND SALVATION

THROUGH PRAYER.R.

I SAID THIS IS HAPPENING

TODAY?

WHY AREN'T THESE THINGSG

HAPPENING IN MY LIFE?

WHY ISN'T THE HOLY SPIRIT DOING

THIS IN MY LIFE?

Reporter: PATTY WAS A FRENCH

MAJOR WHEN SHE ATTENDED THE

SOMETHING FOR US.

NEXT THING WAS TO TAKE THE BIBLE

OF THE ACTS OF THE APOSTLES.E

I KNEW THE APOSTLES WERE IN THE

TIME OF JESUS.

Reporter: THEY OPENED UP EACH

SECTION OF THE RETREAT WITH A

HYMN.

THE SAME HYMN POPE LEO INVOKED.

THEY TAUGHT FROM JESUS WORDS

ACTS 1:8, YOU WILL SEE POWER

WHEN THE HOLY SPIRIT COMES.ULD

WE GET THE SAME WORD

"DYNAMITE" HE LIKENED THE HOLY

SPIRIT TO DYNAMITE.

ALTHOUGH I WAS A RAISED A GOODAN

CATHOLIC BOY, THE LORD HADN'T

ABANDONED ME, BUT I DON'T THINK

I COULD HAVE USED THE WORD HAV

"DYNAMITE" TO DESCRIBE MY

SPIRITUAL LIFE.

Reporter: HE ASKED WHERE IS

THED DYNAMITE?

HE RECORDED IN HIS NOTES, HIS I

DESIRE TO HEAR SOMEONE SPEAK IF

TONGUES.

I PUT A DASH AND PUT "ME."

Reporter: HE WENT OFF BY

HIMSELF TO REFLECT ON THE

TEACHINGS.D WA

WHEN I WALKED INTO THE

CHAPEL, THE PRESENCE OF GOD WAS

SO POWERFUL, I COULD HARDLY

MOVE.AY

I WAS LOST IN CHRIST.

HAPPY TO BE SO.

I COMPLETELY FORGOT ABOUT ALL MY

PUSHING TO SEE WHERE IS THE

DYNAMITE?

THAT'S WHAT IT FELT LIKE.

IT FELT LIKE LITTLE EXPLOSIONS

IN MY BODY GOING OFF AS PART OF

THIS WHOLE EXPERIENCE.EXPE

I STARTED OPENING MY MOUTH TOT.

THANK GOD FOR WHAT HE HAD DONE

AND I STA STARTED PRAYING IN ANOTHERLANG

LANGUAGE.

Reporter: LATER PATTY JOINED

DAVID IN THE CHAPEL.

I BEGAN TO TREMBLE AND THINK

GOD IS HERE.

HE'S HOLY AND I'M NOT HOLY.

KNEELING THERE, I SAID, FATHER,MY

WHATEVER YOU ASKED, ACCEPT IT.

I WAS LYING THERE PROSTRATE ANDOSTA

ISSUES ON THEE FOREFRONT OF EVERY

PARENT'S MIND TOLL.

TOM SHILLUE IS WITH US TODAY.

WELCOME TO THE 700 CLUB.

I LOVE THE VIDEO.

YOU MENTIONED YOUR DAD WAS

DARTH VADER --

LITTLE BIT?

AND YOU WOULDN'T MIND IF YOUR

KIDS HAD A HEALTHY BIT OF FEAR

IN THEM TOWARDS YOU.

I WISH I COULD BE A MEAN DAD

LIKE MY DAD WAS.

I WANT TO DRAG A LITTLE BIT OF

HIS PHILOSOPHY INTO THEINTO

PRESENCE.

HE'D WAKE US UP WITH HIS

BREATHING.HE

GET IN THE CAR!

WE WOULD RUN.

WE'D RUN DOWN AND GET IN THE

CAR. RU

HERE YOU WERE A YOUNG KID AND

YOU GOT INTO A LOT OF SCUFFLES, LOT

A LOT OF FIGHTS AS A KID.

EVERYWHERE.

I GREW UP IN A GOOD HOME.

MY PARENTS WERE DISCIPLINENS BUT

WE HADCK A LOT OF FREEDOM THENNT

BECAUSE MOST OF OUR TIME WAS

SPENT OUTSIDE THE WATCHFUL EYE TH

OF PARENT. F

WE HAD FREEDOM TO DO THAT.

IT WAS FREEDOM TO BE BAD ANDEN

MEAN. G

WHEN I GOT BULLIED I'D COME HOME

TO MY MOTHER AND SAID CHRIS IS

PUNCHING ME.UGHT

SHE SAID PUNCH HIM BACK.

I WAS GOING TO GOING TO CALL THE

BOOK MEAN DADS AND CHEAP MOMS.MS.

MY MOM WAS A MONEY HFER SAVOR.

SHE DIDN'T LIKE TO SPEND MONEY.MO

I REMEMBER MY MOM PROBABLY T

YOURS TOO WENT TO THE GROCERY

STORE WITH A REM CERTAIN AMOUNT OF

CASH MO IN HER HAND AND SOMETIMESE

PUT STUFF BACK IF SHE HAD TO.

SHE HAD THE CASH AND THEN AN

ENVELOPE FULL OF COUPONS.

GREEN BOOK.HE

MY MOTHER WAS A MEMBER OF THEALL

MILITANT COUPON COMMUNITY.

SHE CUT EVERYTHING OUT OF THE UPY.

INS AND MAG -- EVERYTHING OUT OF

NEWSPAPER AND MAGAZINES.

YOU SAID GOD, COUNTRY ANDND

FAMILY SAVED YOUR LIFE, IN WHAT

WAY?

GROWING UP, I HAD THIS VERY

ORDERED WORLD.

WHEN I STARTED WRITING THE BOOK,

I WANTED TO WRITE ABOUT THE

1970s BECAUSE WHEN YOU SEE IT

IN MOVIES OR TV, EVERYONE HAS I

THE LONG HAIR AND BEADS AND LOOK

LIKE THEY JUST GOT OUT OF THE

WOODSTOCK CONCERT.

FOR ME, IT LOOKED MORE LIKE THE

1950s.

IF YOUIKE SEE THE OLD PHOTOS OF ME TH

AS A KID, WE HAD A GREAT SMALLL

TOWN.

LIKE "LEAVE IT TO BEAVER."

WE'D WATCH THAT.

OUR LIFE WAS MORE TRADITIONAL

BACK THEN.

YOUNG PEOPLEPE TODAY DON'T REALIZEIZE

THAT.

I WROTE ABOUT THE '70s AND IT

WAS A TRIBUTE TO MY PARENTS.D

IT WAS EVERY CHAPTER, I WROTE, II

WAS TRYING TO TELL FUNNY

STORIES.

YOU'RE GOING TO LAUGH AT THE WAY

II

WAS RAISED.

IN THE END, THE MESSAGE CAME

DOWN TO GRATITUDE.

ABOUT HOW GRATEFUL I WAS ABOUT

THEE WAY I WAS RAISED.I WA

HOW CAN I GIVE MY OWN KIDS A

LITTLE BIT OF THAT.

BECAUSE IT'S A DIFFERENT WORLD D

TODAY.

HOWNT W CAN WE TAKE THE PAST AND

LEARN FROM IT?

"MEAN DADS FOR A BETTER AMERICA"

IS THE NAME OF IT.

YOU SAID WHEN YOU WERE 12 -- I

LOVE THIS, THEY GAVE YOU A

FREEDOM TO GO FIGURE IT OUT.

THEY DID.

I MEAN, I USED TO HORSE AROUND.

I CONFESS IN THE BOOK I'D SKIPE

CHURCH WITH FRIENDS.

IT WAS LIKE I DIED MY HAIR.

YOU'RE TRYING TO BE A REBEL.

MY PARENTS LET ME BECAUSE I

THINK THEY UNDERSTOOD THAT THEY

GAVE ME A GOOD UPBRINGING.

AND THEN THEY GAVE ME THAT

FREEDOM.

THEY SAID, IT'S INTERESTING, I

DON'T KNOW IF THEY INTENDED TO

DO IT OR IF THEY WERE SICK AND

TIRED OF ME.

BUT I HAD FRIENDS WHOSE PARENTS

WERE IN THEIR FACE.AS,

YOU HAD THE PARENTS WHO JUST --

THEY RAISED THEIR KIDS RIGHT BUTO D

THEN I HAD MY PARENTS WHERE THEY

WEREN'T IN MY FACE ALL THE TIME.D I

THEY LET ME FIGURE IT OUT.

I FEEL LIKE I TURNED OUT OKAY.

HOW DID I DO?

WE'LL TAKE A GROUP VOTE WHEN

THIS IS DONE.

ARE YOU TRYING TO RAISE YOUR

KIDS THE SAME WAY?

I WANT TO BE A MEAN DAD, BUT

YAB DARTH VADER.

I CAN'T BE DARTH VADER.

THERE ARE ARE MY KIDS.

I TRY TO BE MY DAD ON THE

PLAYGROUND.

I'M RAISING MY KIDS IN NEW YORK!ING

I THINK I'M DOING A GOOD JOB.

I WENT DO YOU TO THE PLAYGROUND.

MY DAUGHTER WAS GOING BANG BANG

AND A BOY WAS BANG BANG.G

THEN THE NEW YORK DAD NEXT TO MEXT

AN SAID NO GUNS!

MY DAUGHTER SAID IT'S NOT REAL.

IT'S NOT REAL.

I SAID TO THE GUY, THAT IS

COMMON SENSE.

SOME OF IT IS WHAT WE'RE

FACING IN THE NEWS.

THE WORLD HAS CHANGED A LOTD H

SINCE WE GREW UP.

I LIKE TO TURN OFF THE TV --

I DON'T LIKE TO SAY THAT, BUT

TURN OFF THE MEDIA AND DEVICES

AND BECAUSE SOMETIMES WE'RE

BOMBARDED WITH MESSAGES.

AND SO I LIKE TO HAVE THAT

FAMILY TIME WITH THE MEDIA OFF OFF

AND WE TELL STORIES.

A LOT OF THE STORIES ARE STORIES

I TELL MY KIDS BEFORE BEDTIME.

THEY SAY TELL ME ABOUT THAT TIME

YOUR MOM SAID "PUNCH HIM BACK."

ONE OF THE THINGS THAT IS SO

FUN ABOUT YOUR BOOK, IN A WORLD

THAT HAS GONE A LITTLE MAD, WE

HAVE THE OPPORTUNITY TO REMEMBER A

WHAT IT WAS LIKE WHEN WE ALL D

CARED ABOUT EACH OTHER DESPITE W

OUR DIFFERENCES.

WHEN WE TOOK TIME TO INVEST IN

OUR KIDS AND IN EACH OTHER AS

FAMILY. L

YOU'RE GOING TO LOVE THE BOOK

CALLED "MEAN DADS FOR A BETTER M

WORLD" IT WILLAK MAKE YOU SMILE

AND LONG FOR A LITTLE BIT OF

WHAT WE HAD YEARS AGO.
