Dr. Tom Curran talks about two recent conversations: 1.) with a Catholic Priest about several prominent, business leaders who grew up Catholic, left the Church and live a vibrant Christian faith, and 2.) with a Catholic Dad (one parenting stage ahead of himself) about: What do you say to a young man who wants to court/marry your daughter?
