Like so many young men Ron Meyer grew up striving to become a professional athlete. After playing college and two seasons of semi-pro baseball his career was cut short after contracting a muscular dystrophy condition called Myasthenia Gravis. This condition led to a powerful conversion experience through the Eucharist, which propelled Ron to share his testament of faith at conferences, youth gatherings and prisons with emphasis on Jesus the Divine Mercy and calling men to their true identity in Christ.

The disease never fully progressed as the doctors anticipated although he did feel its' sobering effects. In fact, Ron was once again able to pursue his competitive athletic inclinations, this time through the sport of racquetball.

Ron has won numerous amateur tournaments throughout the country including four state divisional titles and two regional finals. He has qualified and participated in The Nationals in Houston, TX and at the US Open in Minneapolis, MN. He has also competed in a few lower tier professional events. In 1998 Ron signed a contract with Head/Penn racquet sports.

Ron also hosts national sports radio program Blessed2Play aired on EWTN Radio and Sirius 130. The show uncovers the role faith plays in the lives of Catholic athletes from around country.

Ron currently works for EWTN as a marketing manager. Ron and his wife Julie have three children Anna, Angelica and Maria.

Today's Scriptures: Col:3:23-24, Joel 2:12-13

Col:3:23,24

Whatever you do, work at it w/ your whole being. Do it for the Lord rather than for Men. Since you know full well you will receive an inheritance from him as your reward. Be slaves of Christ the Lord.

Joel 2:12-13

Come back to me with all your heart, fasting, weeping, mourning. Let your hearts be broken, not your garments torn, turn to the Lord your God again, for he is all tenderness and compassion, slow to anger, rich in graciousness, and ready to relent.
