In life’s challenges and in loss, hope is more than optimism. It lives in the soul, is a gift of the Spirit, and needs to be cultivated. We will explore ways to nourish hope, drawing on the insights of Fr. Isaac Hecker, founder of the Paulists. When America was torn apart by the Civil War and poisoned by hate of Catholic immigrants, he he proclaimed a message of hope.
Fr. Desiderio has spoken to us abouty Forgiveness, The Life and Thought of Pope Francis, and The Three Great Loves. As past president of Paulist Productions, he executive-produced hours of TV movies and documentaries, including the ABC/Paramount movie “Judas.” He has been a parish priest, a campus minister, and is a much sought after speaker and consultant, now based in NYC.
