About

First and foremost, this is about you. How can I help you? I am an author and speaker that helps faithful but overwhelmed Catholics understand the richness of the Faith, so they can light the world on fire, starting with their own friends and families.



Biography

I recently published The Catholic ManBook as a handbook for Catholic men who want to become Saints. Get your copy today on Amazon or Barnes & Noble. This is one of the many fruits of the Men of the Immaculata (MOTI), an organization I co-founded with a number of laymen and priests from the Diocese of Baton Rouge. The MOTI host an annual men's conference and sponsor opportunities for men's intellectual formation throughout the year.


My first novel, The Seventh Word, which is available on Amazon and Kindle. The Seventh Word is a horror novel, and the first pro-life horror novel. 

I graduated from Texas A & M University in 2006 with a B.S. in Chemical Engineering, from LSU's Paul M. Hebert Law Center in 2013 with a Juris Doctor and DCL, and from Notre Dame Seminary in 2016 with a Masters in Theology. I am a former Jesuit seminarian and taught ministry and theology courses for many years at Angola Prison, the nation's largest maximum security prison. 


In 2014, my wife and I founded the Pointe Coupee Chapter of Louisiana Right to Life. I also serve my home parish of St. Mary's of False River as the Grand Knight of the local Knights of Columbus Council #1998. 

About this Blog, "All Roads Lead to Rome"

I'm writing this Catholic blog to help, in my own small way, prepare Catholics to make a defense of their faith. As St. Peter wrote, "Always be prepared to make a defense [apologia] to any one who calls you to account for the hope that is in you, yet do it with gentleness and reverence" (1 Peter 3:15). 

I invite readers to share in the wonders of the Catholic Church and the Incarnate Word, particularly in the Catholic convergence we can see all around us -- that ALL ROADS LEAD TO ROME. To this end, I write articles on pro-life issues, defending Church teaching, and movie+theology reviews to show, not just the Christian and Biblical allusions, but that man has only ever told ONE story: the Christ story. My end game is showing that all of mankind's heroes indelibly bear the imprint of Christ, no matter how secular or atheistic the source. 

Anyway, I invite you to read all this and comment, whether you agree or disagree. God bless!
