Tim Francis, a nationally-known speaker who travels around the country in an effort to help Catholics gain a deeper understanding of Christ’s real presence in the Eucharist, will be on Deepertruth live tonight 4/27/2020. “I grew up in a small town in Ohio, one of six kids. We never missed Mass,” Francis said. “Like so many kids, as soon as I went off to college, I left the Church behind. I had more time for football than I did for Church.” After moving to Dallas, Texas, and marrying his wife, who was not raised in any faith, he got involved in a large evangelical Church and began attending Bible studies. However, his mother continued to send him information on the Catholic faith. “She said, ‘All I want you to understand is what you’re giving up,’” Francis said.
Since 2009, Francis has been working to spread the message of Christ’s real presence and has spoken at hundreds of parishes around the country. “I also came to believe that the Catholic Church has tremendous gifts called the sacraments, but very few people are taking advantage of them. It was like this hidden treasure,” he said.
