Fr. Leo Patalinghug: A Revert to the Faith

Fr. Leo Patalinghug | July 13, 2015 4 Comments

Father Leo was baptized Catholic and brought up in a Catholic home in Baltimore, Maryland. When young he was bored at Mass and questioned his faith. His heart was turned to the Lord at a parish mission where the priest explained the Mass step by step. God gave him a hunger for Jesus in the Holy Eucharist. He sought out the Lord through the Scripture, youth groups, pilgrimages and more. The more he sought the Lord the more God gave him an increasing hunger for him. This was the beginning of a journey that would eventually lead him to the priesthood. Father Leo is now a member of a community of consecrated life called Voluntas Dei. He founded “Grace Before Meals”, an apostolate to strengthen families around the dinner table. He is the host of the EWTN program “Savoring Our Faith.”
