BRIEF PROFILE and LANGUAGES (for evangelization):
His conversion began in 1999. As a young man he was an ambitious artist, working on cinematographic sets for movies with big-name actors like Russel Crowe.  He did not believe in God, or understand the meaning of his life, when - while wandering the world in search of meaning - he had a providential encounter with some members of our young community while they were begging in Catania. This lit a new hope inside of him, soon to be transformed into a certainty: that Christ offers us the Resurrection and a blessed immortality! In addition to English, he speaks Italian and can communicate in French and Spanish. To read his testimony, click here.

BRIEF PROFILE and LANGUAGES (for evangelization):
His conversion began in 2001. Before coming to faith at 17 years of age, he searched for freedom among the anarchists called "libertari" in France, but he did not find true freedom there.  Then, attracted by the life of the Apostles and the first Franciscans, he searched for the right community for three years - until he met the founder of this community, who helped him understand the meaning of true freedom in gradually putting the Word of Jesus into practice (cf. Jn. 8:32). In addition to French, he reads and writes in Italian and English, speaks Spanish and German, and can communicate in Portuguese; intermittently, he is also studying Russian.

BRIEF PROFILE and LANGUAGES (for evangelization):

He grew up in a Catholic family in one of the most Catholic areas of Louisiana (USA). At the age of 14, he met the youth minister at his parish and from then on felt the desire in his heart to give his whole life to the Lord. About a year later, he thought the Lord might be calling him to diocesan priesthood, but he still had to finish his studies. When he graduated, he came to realize that it was not the right time to enter the seminary and decided to work for a year or two. During that time, he started having closer contact with the community of the Little Friars of Jesus and Mary, and had a brief vocational experience with them - at which point he realized that perhaps the Lord had permitted that he not enter Seminary yet because He had other plans. He continued his discernment with the Little Friars and is seeking to understand ever more fully God's will for his life. In addition to English, he can communicate in Spanish.
