Right to our webinar so fire ken do you have anything that you want to share with us about the merced area religious or as you were saying in this whole foundation the st.
For freedom family and faith is in some sense a an apostolic outreach or an apostolic expression of our mercy Darian charism we were founded to come to the Christians who are in danger of denying their faith and we needed to do everything we could to free them we first we begged for.
Alms to pay for their release from being held as captives and we didn’t.
Have enough we were there or prepared to take their place so we continue that same spirit in action by doing everything.
We can to help Christians who are in any situation where it’s there’s a risk for their faith and we can see in our culture in a society today that what’s attacking the faith the most is the disintegration of the integrity of the family life so this is why they’re our first expression especially if you add on top of the secularization and you had on top of that.
Is involved in losing their the stability of their relationship with separation divorce or if there’s a remarriage without annulment all these are making it even more difficult for people to live their faith in following our Lord so we are doing what we can and making this outreach to make it possible to support and help families sue to grow in faith and free.
Them from what holds them back from living it and so I think you like you said we want to start.
With a prayer so maybe that would be a good.
Thing to do before we go into Tony found good it sounds wonderful would you like to lead us in that prayer sure well let’s begin a name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit amen God our Father in Heaven you are the giver of every good gift and we thank you not only for the gift of life but even more new life in.

Anything that’s holding them back and we asked your blessings upon Tony as he shares about his life and experience and in our prayer and our hope that it helps all of us to live more fully our faith in a beautiful family of the family of Christ we ask this Heavenly Father through Jesus Christ our Lord amen amen name of the Father.

Fact that we both would have a heart for evangelizing Christians but Catholics as well and I know Tony’s going to.

Some questions and so forth but yeah I am I am an evangelist in the sense that that people call my books soft evangelization or pop evangelization and they say that kind of with the dig that it’s a negative thing and I don’t think so at all I think it’s a very positive thing you know the Catholic Church let’s face it we have we are.
