I was invited by the Knights of Columbus, college council, to speak on the topic of evangelization on campus at Texas A&M. It was a great honor to hang out with these young men and share with them a bit of my journey and some of the lessons the Holy Spirit has taught me in sharing the faith with others.

I gave this talk at the opening ceremony of the John Paul II Film Festival in Miami, FL; its a combination of a talk I give on “Shame & Continence” from John Paul II “Love & Responsibility” and my own testimony on growing up with pornography, sexual license, how God delivered me from it, and how John Paul II taught me to use shame as a tool for spiritual success.

Unlike “Jeremiah 13:18”, Our Lady… Our “John 19:27”… will“Revelation 12:1” for all eternity because, her son is truly the “Daniel 2:37” who “Daniel 7:13 & 14” as a “Revelation 5:6”… the very“John1:29”. Just like “1 Samuel 16:13”, whose son was “2 Samuel 7:12-14” , and whose wife “1 Kings 2:19”… […]
