Ricardo Medina understands the complexity of culture. In Houston and Galveston, with its 1.7 million Catholics, he knows that, even with countless cultures to minister to, an understanding of the love of Christ binds us together as a universal Church body.
In this final conversation of the bonus interview series of the Marriage Catechumenate Summit, we focus on the Archdiocese of Galveston-Houston. Darnell Miller, Creative Director of MAX Studios, sits down with Ricardo Medina, Director of the Office of Family Life for the Archdiocese of Galveston-Houston. They discuss the vast number of cultural groups in Houston, how Ricardo believes that simple works of mercy will engage people in Church life more profoundly, and the value of family life as the place where faith becomes real.
