Patrick’s Most Requested Talk Topics

Nine Ways to Defeat the Culture of Death

For Everyone

With the Culture of Death pressing in on us, being a faithful Catholic may seem a daunting task. But St. Paul reminded Timothy to “fight the good fight” and preach the word “in season and out of season…for the time is coming when people will not endure sound teaching.” That’s the world we live today! This inspiring talk will help you engage the culture and make a difference by stressing the basics — learning, living and spreading the faith.

Finding Truth in an Age of Fake News

For Parents and Adults

If you’re a news junkie–or even if you’ve cut the cable–you know that the news business has become highly politicized. President Trump has tagged the left-leaning media (CNN, MSNBC, The New York Times) as Fake News. But liberals and progressives tag conservative media as biased, too. So whom should you believe? Patrick cuts through the noise with some solid tips on how to tell fact from fiction.

Parenting in a Hostile Culture

For Parents and Adults

Make no mistake about it, the Culture of Death wants your children. Corporate America wants their (your) money, public schools want to indoctrinate them (sharp left turn), and the world wants them to skip their childhood and jump right into adulthood, whether they’re ready or not. Full stop. It doesn’t have to be that way. Parents are the biggest influence on their children, and that means you’re in charge. Get 10 practical tips on how to take charge in your home and point your children toward a life of truth and lasting joy.

The Inspired Legacy of Pope St. John Paul II

For Everyone

From his humble beginnings as the son of a military officer in Poland, Karol Józef Wojtyła went on to change the world as Pope John Paul II. With his wisdom, charm and charisma, he drew some of the biggest crowds in human history. But with the power of the Holy Spirit and divine grace, he breathed new life the Catholic Church and the world along with it. Patrick Novecosky, who met the new saint four times and attended his canonization, talks about the Pope’s legacy and how he paved the way for Popes Benedict XVI and Francis — and he counts down the Holy Father’s Top 10 gifts to the Church.

Relativism is Killing Us & What to Do About It

For Everyone

Pope Benedict XVI has said that one of the biggest problems facing the world today is the “dictatorship of relativism.” Just days before being elected Pope, he said, ““We are building a dictatorship of relativism that does not recognize anything as definitive and whose ultimate goal consists solely of one’s own ego and desires.” Learn concrete ways you can break through our self-centered culture in our post-Christian era, and how we can teach the next generation to live selflessly.
