An archbishop's meditation about Venerable Matt Talbot

Our Sunday Visitor will be publishing on 31 March 2014 a collection of meditations titled, A Journey to the Heart of Jesus: Guideposts Along the Way by J. Peter Sartain, Archbishop of Seattle.
Within Chapter 5, pages 140-143,  titled, “Handing Ourselves Over to God,” Archbishop Sartain shares some experiences of his family and friends regarding Matt Talbot as a family patron of loss causes, as a patron for alcoholics working the A.A. program of recovery, and as a model of Christian life and holiness for all. This and other meditations can be read at
