'Where is God in your family?' - A mission in Molokai

I had the honor of visiting the island of Molokai several months ago for a lay catechetical mission. The theme for the gathering was 'Family & Marriage'.

I decided for my session to focus on the greatest of all families, the PERFECT family, the Holy Family. In this lecture I focus on the example given to us by the Holy Family and how we ought to strive, in our families, to mirror the beautiful relationship and powerful love that the Holy Family shared.

The second part of the talk focuses on The Holy Sacrifice of the Mass as the Summit of our Faith (CCC 1324) and how worshipping together strengthens our families and allows us to aid each other in striving towards what the Blessed Sacrament itself foreshadows, the 'future eternal joy and glory, which, according to God's promises, we shall receive in our heavenly country.' (Catechism of the Council of Trent)

October Baby movie comes to Hawaii

It opens on March 23, Friday at Ward Theaters in Honolulu and will have showings throughout Hawaii through April. Support it. Movies that make sense, that defend life and truth, find it hard to find good traction in our modernistic media culture. We can do our part by promoting this movie and others like it.
