Watch the series finale as Fr. John Leo Rutten explains, the good and God who wins us over!

“I had an encounter with a nurse that had served God by working with children with special needs for 20+ years. She started her clinic job a few months ago and is struggling to find God’s purpose in a clinical setting.

She was having a hard day on Thursday. I gave her a sticky note with the link to your videos. She thanked me the next day and said they were so helpful. Stepping outside your box is bringing the light of Christ to so many!”

– Dominique

“I had always judged people and never thought about what was going on in their lives. I soon found that I loved discovering how many people in our parish have experienced the love of Christ personally and their stories kept inspiring me.

I just watched your final “Thank you” video and everything suddenly made sense.”

–Regina
