Listen as Fr. Tom Sparacino, from the Diocese of Pittsburgh, proclaims with exuberance ‘Follow the Joy’ with his crowd-pleasing humor. He shares many stories that will captivate your attention. Joy at the foot of the cross with Mother Mary (“Ma” as he calls her) and answering the call of Jesus to “feed my sheep” are charisms of Fr. Tom. To live in joy is walking with purpose and overcoming any fear and pain when we give it all to Jesus. There may be sadness and atrocities all over the world, but there is joy in the house of the Lord. How we follow the joy is not done alone; we follow Jesus.  We focus on Him who strengthens us. Living in joy is embracing Jesus and holding onto Mary. Joy is the breath and grace of the Holy Spirit.  If we are joyful messengers, we will live out the good news with joy, passion, death, and resurrection. We need to remember the crib, the cross, and the crown. Fr. Tom suggests five habits to receive joy: live to listen to Him, live to praise Him, live in contentment, live in focus, and live to serve. We belong to the kingdom, so count it all JOY.

Fr. Tom has been a priest of Jesus Christ for the Diocese of Pittsburgh since 1998.  He has served as high school chaplain, co-vocation director and is currently the Rector of St. Paul Seminary and the Director of Pre-ordination Formation.  Fr. Tom has been the spiritual advisor to the Magnificat Pittsburgh Chapter since 2010.  The Holy Spirit has poured His joy into Fr. Tom, and he gladly pours it out on all of us.  His infectious laughter and lightheartedness and like a bright light in a dark world.  We know you will be inspired as you listen to this joyful servant of the Lord.

This talk – Follow the Joy was given at the 17th Magnificat International Leaders Conference in Pittsburgh, PA in October 2023.
