Beginning by explaining how he himself overcame anti-Catholicism in his own upbringing, Deacon Alex encourages Catholics to overcome whatever obstacles may face them as they embrace the apostolic call of their Baptism to share the good news of Jesus Christ. Employing his signature humor and enthusiasm, Deacon Alex reminds us that we’re all called to be “explorers,” discovering new territories where we can live the Gospel in dynamic ways.
