This weekend will be a first for me. It’s hard to believe, but after many years on the Catholic speaking circuit, I will be sharing the platform for the first time with my friend and fellow evangelist/apologist, Jesse Romero.
You could say that we’re cut from a very similar cloth. Like me, Jesse is one of the few nationally-known bilingual Catholic apologists/speakers in the country. We have both been laboring in The LORD’S vineyard for several decades now and are renowned for our high-octane presentations on the Faith. If I had a dollar for every time someone confused me for Jesse at a conference or parish mission, I’d be a very rich man.
I have had the great pleasure of seeing Jesse in action more than a few times. As many of you already know, you can’t walk away from one of his talks without being inspired by his passion for the faith and his zeal for souls. For years he has styled himself “The Latin Lover of Our LORD and Our Lady”. This weekend, he’s going to have to share that title with his east coast brother for what is sure to be a high-energy conference. Keep us in your prayers as we seek to equip our brothers and sisters in Sacramento, CA to better share, explain, and defend our rich Catholic faith. Nuestra querida Morenita, Virgen de Guadalupe, ruega por nosotros.
