I just saw this episode on CatholicTV and was very inspired by Fr. Tony's enthusiasm, and his down-to-earth style. He's so approachable, yet his insights are profound. He shows how even the Holy Family (Jesus, Mary and Joseph) had problems (as well all do). We are not called to be perfect, but to try to respond to life's challenges with faith and love. Fr. Tony explains how we can look to the Holy Family, the saints and members of our own families as examples.
I want to share this DVD and other of his materials with members of my own family.
