2. Favorite movie?
My favorite movie is The Tree of Life.
3. A moving/exciting OLMC memory?
My most moving memory is the Prayer Service on the Friday night after 9/11 when all the town gathered at Mount Carmel and people at the prayer petition called out names of friends and relatives who were still missing and everyone held hands for the Our Father. It was a tremendous sense of unity of prayer and emotion.

6. Life advice? Favorite quote?
God speaks to us through nature, through other people, through the events of our lives and it is always the little things that are most important.
