Priest and Magician - Father Matthew
Father was a magician (that sounds quite odd when writing about a Catholic priest :-) before being ordained. He entertains with his terrific magic tricks as he evangelizes. That is what he did at this particular mission.
My family and I were not able to attend the Mission. We were privileged instead to spend some quality time with Father thanks to my good friend. We visited Bellows Beach where we had a great time talking story with Father on the Catholic faith and just getting to know each other. I especially found his stories about meetings with Blessed Mother Teresa to be inspiring!
It was at Bellows that Father entertained us with some magic tricks. The best trick is at the end of the video.
I think any parish who invites Father to hold a mission in their church is in for a treat because Father is priest who lives his faith with joy. He is a great model as a priest for boys and young men. I am so glad my son decided to join us that day.
If you are interest in inviting Father for a Mission talk, you can email him at firstname.lastname@example.org.
