Practice What You Preach: Family Reflection Video

Practice What You Preach: Family Reflection Video

Love thy Neighbor  |  Holy lives of inspiration

I came across a story recently of a seminarian who gave his life to save others. His name was Jason Marshall.

That Jason would have sacrificed his life to save others did not come as a surprise to his family and friends. He would often speak of the need for good men to become priests.

Jason Marshall inspired his fellow seminarians, and they are emulating him now and trying to do for other people what they saw him doing.

It takes a dedicated family - not perfect but dedicated - to raise and encourage good priests, good sisters, good married couples and good dedicated single people.

Join me in praying that we all will practice what we preach.
