His talk about the New Evangelization will call on Catholics to deepen their faith, believe in the Gospel, and proclaim the Gospel. He will also speak about how the New Evangelization is an invite for Catholics to renew their relationship with Jesus and his Church.

Many of these presentations have been recorded and distributed by Catholic Lighthouse, The St. Paul Center for Biblical Theology, and St. Joseph Communications.
