Review of Fr Leo Event:
FOOD FOR THOUGHT- BODY, MIND & SPIRIT!
FR LEO PATALINGHUG AT ST. BRIDGET’S MELBOURNE - APRIL 29TH 2017
Offering some food for thought in Melbourne with the art of food as a medium, Fr Leo Patalinghug savoured each step of creating a delicious penne alla vodka, by unravelling the significance of family meals at the dinner table in modern society.
Relevant in today’s society of disconnect, Fr Leo’s stories and sentiments sent a strong message about harnessing the “power of food” by opening channels of conversation when we share a meal as families at the dinner table. These interactions are served with purpose and love, additionally empowering one with the “virtue of hospitality”.
With a larger than life presence, a pure reflection of his passion for Catholicism in the home and a penchant for sharing his love of hospitality and food, Fr Leo wowed his audience with his colloquial humour which made his offerings all the more personable and accessible to absolutely any Catholic from all walks of life.
Fr Leo’s stories inspired a hunger within his audience for reflection and connection with loved ones the way Jesus connected with his Disciples. Where bread is broken, connection is made - body, mind and spirit.
After a delightful afternoon of aromas, much laughter and God’s messages, Fr Leo graced his audience with a tasting of his beautifully creamy pasta dish and the opportunity to meet and greet.

Review by Melissa Parkinson
Doctor Gloria Polo was an orthodontist living in Columbia when she was struck by lightning and had a near death experience in which she was judged by Jesus and condemned for mortal sin. Fortunately, a very pious, humble farmer who saw a picture of her in the newspaper prayed for her soul and Jesus granted her a second chance, with a mission to repeat what she witnessed not only a thousand times, but a thousand times a thousand; and that when she comes back before Jesus to be judged again, she will be judged with greater severity, due to her second chance and all that she saw while over there.
