God is good! I’m grateful to have had the opportunity to speak to the confirmation class at St. Vincent de Paul Catholic Church in Houston, TX today. I challenged them to prepare themselves to live the faith, to make it their own and not their parents or teachers… to be fully Catholic. Why? Because its true, and Truth is a person not some abstract concept.
Why? Why did God have to take on flesh and dwell among us? Why did he have to suffer and die in order to redeem us? Answer, LOVE, a complete gift of self… it’s what the first Adam failed to do, and the last Adam did to perfection! Much of this talk is based upon Dr. Scott Hahn’s work in “First Comes Love”, and “A Father Who Keeps His Promises”. I would encourage you to read both of those books for MUCH more detail. The video & audio quality is not the best however, due to “user error”… I failed to record the audio… this is now the only copy I have of this talk given to the St. Thomas More Society at the University of Houston Law Center.
