I came to know him through the Word on Fire website, when Bishop Barron wrote an article about his life. Since then he has been a constant companion to me in my prayers. I am inspired by his love of the Blessed Sacrament, by his practical and concrete expression of his commitment to social justice and love of the poor, by his youth, by his prayer life. Several times I prayed to him to help me -- to be generous, to persist in my prayer life, to love and be of service those less fortunate than I am. All my prayers have been answered through his intercession. That he enjoyed the "normal" things in life made him more accessible to me, although I am 63 years old!
