Today’s guest post is by Greg Hoerter, manager of strategic partnerships for Catholic Products.
Logos had the honor of taking part in another great Catholic men’s conference on Saturday, October 13, this time in Colorado Springs’ beautiful Rocky Mountains foothills. At the Pikes Peak Center in the Diocese of Colorado Springs, the Rocky Mountain Catholic Men’s Conference built on the theme “A Gathering of Heroes.” The speaker lineup focused on being heroes in the family, community, and church.
Speakers included Fr. Jim Baron, Bishop Michael Sheridan, J. D. Flynn, Chris Stefanick, Dr. Ray Guarendi, Randy Hain, Gus Lloyd, and Dr. Thomas Smith; Archbishop Samuel Aquila celebrated Mass. My Logos Bible Software presentation showed attendees how they could maintain or regain their hero status with their families and communities by using Logos to better understand and defend their Catholic faith.
I ran into a large group of diaconate aspirants who, as a requirement for their training, began using Logos in their formation process this year. I received nothing but high praise for the software, and a few of them purchased some additional collections to complement their libraries. They also made my job very easy by convincing many of their brothers in the diaconate formation process to get the software and consider it for their group in Denver. I suspect Denver may be the next diaconate formation group using Logos for training!
I always leave these Catholic men’s conferences recharged and full of the Holy Spirit. The Church is full of life, and I am so glad to be a part of it—and to equip these men with something that will help them stay full of energy and life long after they leave the conference. With the election fast approaching and the Year of Faith upon us, Logos’ Catholic Bible software is just what the Church needs, clergy and laity alike! To quote Dr. Thomas Smith quoting Scott Hahn, “Every priest is a father, and every father is a priest.” We all need to learn and defend our faith so that we can stand for Truth—so that we can be real heroes for our children.
