“Nothing short of outstanding. All I can say is we have been changed.”

A FEW OF JON'S MOST POPULAR KEYNOTES
LIFE, LIBERTY, AND THE PURSUIT OF HOLINESS
God created human beings in his own image, Genesis tells us. Nothing else in this world, as good as it is, was created in the image and likeness of God. And that's important to know because that means all the things in our lives are worth less than us. Therefore if we try to fill our unquenchable desire for meaning, reason, and purpose in everything that is worth less than us, we will never find what we're looking for. And we are looking for something. Rather, we're looking for someone; God.
WE CAN KNOW GOD
Many today are bored with God and Catholicism. But that's not God or the Church's fault. They're bored because they've forgotten who God is and why that matters to their lives. After all, when we forget who God is, we forget who we are, too. But we can know God! We can know God because he's revealed himself to us. This talk helps us rediscover who God is. When we do that, our mission becomes clear, and profound change happens in our lives.

SACRAMENT MOST HOLY, SACRAMENT DIVINE
If someone were to ask you why you’re Catholic, how would you respond? I’m Catholic because I believe it’s in and through the Catholic Church that I have the best chance of getting to Heaven with God. That's because it's in the Church we have the Eucharist – Jesus Christ's body, blood, soul, and divinity – really, truly, and substantially present for you and for me. That changes everything.
Do you want to be a saint? Of course you do. After all, anyone in Heaven is a saint. So, it follows – if you want to go to Heaven, you want to be a saint! But our spiritual lives will not come together on their own. The canonized saints had a plan, and, by God's grace, they stuck with it. It's time we implement the three-fold plan every canonized saint lived and had in common; a plan to make us saints, as well.
MISSION OF THE FAMILY
How will you change the world? What's the key to molding our culture into a culture for God? Where do we as followers of Jesus Christ begin? It's time we discover and live God's plan of discipleship and love in the family.
