Archbishop Paul Coakley is a very engaging speaker.I very much liked hearing his reflections on his journeys. Marianne - Seligman, AZ
he referred to the 400 moments of graditude in our lives when jesus touches us. and being a mother of a 16 year old boy I have a lot of god moments. I resected is emphasis on graditude a heart of gradutiude goes along way. contstant prayer gives hope and is honesty that he wavered away from the faith on his faith journey. and both times he got the phone call he was surprised. he didn't have lofty ambishens for power. he truly sounded honest pure and strong and I fell those are essensial qualities in a bishop. lesa - noblesville, IN
