A few years ago I had the opportunity to attend my first Los Angeles Archdiocese Religious Education Congress in Anaheim, California. My friend Richard and I drove from Los Angeles, Saturday morning, arriving about 15 minutes before the Keynote speaker of that day which happened to be, Chicago priest, Father Robert Barron. I can’t remember how I originally learned about Father Barron, but I’ve watched many of his youtube videos, listen to his weekly homilies on his website wordonfire.org, I bought, watched and re-watched several times his beautiful DVD series, Catholicism. So naturally, I was looking forward to seeing him live.
A few years ago, I had the honor of portraying St. Maximilian Kolbe in the Film, THE SAINT OF AUSCHWITZ, currently streaming on feeln.com. At that time I was not familiar with this saint, so before the audition I scoured the internet for information on this, I would soon discover, courageous Saint.
