The Holy Spirit is my best friend, and I wouldn't know Him if it weren't for the Immaculata. Many people say that their faith is the most important part of their life, but shouldn't it be that your faith IS your life? I am convinced that there is much more for us, that we are meant to be so filled with the Holy Spirit that each of us approach divine union with God, no matter where we are in our journey, no matter what our vocation, and no matter what our circumstances. So let us rise to the challenge, let us respond to the invitation to be Spirit-filled disciples of Jesus Christ, witnessing miracles and experiencing the radical love of our Father through the powerful Anointing of the Holy Spirit each and every day!

He has also given many talks on Catholic Evangelization and Apologetics.
The Immaculate Conception, the Anointing of the Holy Spirit, & Our Interior Life: This talk follows the Mariology of St. Maximilian Kolbe and the contemporary mystical theology to provide a practical treatise on Mary's union with the Holy Spirit and how it impacts our own spiritual life!
The Three Ways of Love: A simple look at the mystical life for every single Catholic! No matter what state in life, no matter what vocation. This follows the Three Ages of the Interior Life (Fr. Reginald Garrigou-Lagrange: the spiritual GIANT!) and will show you how mysticism is for YOU and how YOU can grow in holiness every single day - it's not as complicated as you might think!
Christianity 360: This is a full circle view of salvation history and the implications it has for your everyday life.
The Kingdom in YOU: This is a talk on a Catholic view of Evangelization. How to be filled with the Anointing of the Holy Spirit and do ministry like Christ did - to become His disciples and evangelize like Jesus.
The Fire of God's Love: The Spiritual Anointing of the Holy Spirit: So you're catching a theme here, right? This talk is devoted completely to the Holy Spirit! Who He is, what He does, what that means to you! Like the other talks, it is a combination of theology and practical application, but may be altered to one side or the other depending on the audience.
This is not an exhaustive list! Additional talks include are available on theology, spirituality, prayer, Scripture, and apologetics as well!
