Fr. Leo Patalinghug delivers energetic talk about the joys and crosses of married life at the World Meeting of Families.

On the third day of the World Meeting of Families in Dublin, Ireland, cooking priest Fr. Leo Patalinghug gave a talk and cooking demonstration entitled, “Spicing Up Our Married Life: Satisfying Couples Hunger for True Love.”

Fr. Leo is “a priest member of a community of consecrated life, Voluntas Dei. He is the Founder, Host, and Director of Plating Grace, an international apostolate to help strengthen families and relationship through God’s gift of a family meal.” He is also well known for being the “host of Savoring Our Faith on EWTN, which was developed following his dynamic win on the cooking competition, ‘Throw Down! with Bobby Flay.’”

In his presentation Fr. Leo used numerous cooking analogies to help married couples understand what they need to do in order to have a joy-filled marriage.

While cooking Fr. Leo explained how “we are going to be making a beautiful dessert, because marriage is sweet, but I am also going to some cayenne pepper, because marriage is also spicy.” He encouraged couples to work hard for their marriage, enjoying the good moments and persevering during those times when it is most difficult.
