A recent issue of the Oregon Medical Board’s newsletter included a tribute to Father Robert Palladino.

Deacon Harold Burke-Sivers — a graduate of the University of Notre Dame who holds a graduate degree from the University of Dallas — is considered by many to be one of the best Catholic preachers from the pulpit.

As a bonus, Archbishop Alexander Sample has contributed a long and excellent foreword.
