From Father Leo Patalinghug:

There is no doubt that family holds a preeminent place in our hearts as individuals and as a society. But today, we face the problems of not understanding the deeper meaning of family, especially in a fractured culture.  I want this book to be part of the solution by encouraging a thoughtful discussion on something so basic as a “family meal.”

I did not want to create a ‘program,’ but to tap into the common sense that is embedded in ancient wisdom, that should become a natural thought and a positive habit, such as eating together.  I want families to eat together, and to see how a family meal communicates the truths that we are desperately starving for as a global family.

It is my desire for this book to generate a deeper investigation of why our societies are splintering and what can we do to save the world, beginning with a super hero’s job of saving the family, one meal at a time.
