Msgr. Don is a beloved father of many creators and thinkers. He founded the Pastoral Reflections Institute as a way to awaken hearts to the ever creating presence of God. His message is rooted in the recognition that as believers we are called to accept our human condition and its perfect compliment, the indwelling presence of a loving God. As one who longs 'to see', Msgr. Don has always looked for the story within the story, the hidden teaching of Christ, which rather than telling us what to do or what to believe, heals and transforms us.
