Venerable Matt Talbot: Can an Alcoholic Become a Saint"

by Fr. Kevin Shanley, O.Carm.

The late Fr. Kevin Shanley, O.Carm. gave the following 2004 talk about Matt Talbot as part of the "Life is Worth Giving" Series in Darian, IL., USA. The original, typed text of this article, which is dated 2002, can be read as is (with white background pages) or a blue background by clicking each page. Note that the birth date for Matt is incorrectly listed as 1853 rather than 1856.

This, like some other homilies and articles already posted, might be considered "introductions" to Matt Talbot.
