The Love that Satisfies
In this high-energy presentation for young people, Matt explains that the virtue of chastity is for those who desire joy and that any sexual relationship devoid of this virtue will always disappoint. Backed up with compelling statistics and engaging personal stories, Matt challenges audience members to open their minds and hearts and embrace the Church’s teachings on human sexuality.
How to Win an Argument Without Losing a Soul
If Catholics are to “always be ready to make a defense to anyone who calls you to account for the hope that is in you” (1 Pet. 3:15), they must have a basic understanding of argumentation. In this interactive and intellectually stimulating talk, Matt explains what constitutes strong and weak arguments and how to detect common fallacies. This talk includes five indispensable tips for conversing with non-Catholics.
God, the Universe, and Everything
Matt shares how and why he left the Catholic Faith of his childhood and returned to its enthusiastic practice. Through his passionate and entertaining story you will learn how God’s existence can be grasped by reason alone and that it is a historical fact that Jesus Christ established the Catholic Church. This talk is appropriate for people of any age, including children and youths.
