Deep in the Heart of Texas

What a weekend!!!

Brant mentioned that we would be in Texas for a "big" conference (because, of course, in Texas everything is big!)--but we had no idea just how "big" it was going to be!

Over a thousand people crammed the Holy Spirit Catholic Church on Saturday. Moreover, we were graced with the presence of Bishop Plácido Rodríguez, CMF, who remained for the entirety of the conference! We were overwhelmed and amazed with his generosity and support. What a shepherd! Here's a man who truly has a heart for his flock. We were so moved by his love for the Church.

It was great to see so many lay Catholics come out--from every walk of life--to study God's Word. Brant and David did an amazing job. Of course, it was an absolute blast spending time with them. So much could be said, but suffice it to say, it was a truly grace-filled conference.

Special thanks to the Powell family and the Footsteps in Faith Board for putting this conference together. They did an excellent job.

The talks are available on CD through St. Joseph's Communications. It's hard to find the conference on their website (http://www.saintjoe.com/), but you can reach them by phone:
