Monday:  The ancient practices of waiting, conversation, and pause have all been lost in the modern world.  They might be the solution to reclaiming hope in the midst of a world given to despair.

Tuesday:  We are all on a journey.  The key to life is to recognize God has given you all you need for the season you are in. Welcome to the Holy Journey.


Wednesday:  May the Passion of Jesus Christ Be Always in Our Hearts.  To be fully alive we must embrace our cross and gather together at the foot of His Cross.  This is the launching pad for our life in the world!

“In my 45 years of being a priest, I have never encountered a speaker like Joe Farris. His bold message manages to blend together 20 plus years of parish ministry with a vision for the future that challenges and encourages.  Our community, both young and old, was blessed by Joe and we are already trying to get him back!”
Father Justin Kerber, former Rector of Sacred Heart Cathedral, North Carolina

“Joe Farris is simply a man of God, a lover of the faith, a family man, and has an unquestionable passion to share Christ with others. He is amazing and I hope you get to know him like I have.  What a gift to the Church!”
Chris Padgett, Musician and Evangelist, Syracuse, New York

“Joe Farris is one of the most authentic and vibrant Catholic speakers that I know.  He has an amazing ability to engage people of all ages in such a way that people walk away from his presentations on fire for the Lord and with a deep desire for personal growth. Joe’s humility and speaking style invite all to realize that a joyful life on earth and sainthood in Heaven is within their grasp thanks to the grace of God.” 
Father Thomas M. Pastorius, St. Louis, Missouri
