You’re old. You think your life is over. What can the Church say to give you hope and new vision to break out into things you’ve never done before?

In this program, Fr. Mike talks to Fr. Leonard Pasquale, IMC, who has a special interest in the elderly in his parish.

If you were born into a situation filled with pain, anger, hatred and struggles, where would you find God?

In this interview by Fr. Mike, Natalie Smith tells of her very difficult childhood, living with biological parents, alcoholic and abusive. Her Polish grandmother was the only safe person she knew. Growing up this way, Natalie did not know that life was different for others. She would go outside and enjoy nature as the only relief from the desperate situation.

Quite unexpectedly, as a teenager she started drinking as well, and ended up marrying an abusive man similar to her own father.   Then something happened and Natalie changed her life. Don't miss this amazing story.  More information is available at  nataliesmithart.com.
