I’ve invited Christine Watkins to speak at our parish more than once. She was very successful, and I highly recommend her. When she speaks, it is powerful. It is heart speaking to heart. She loves Christ and the Church, and it surely comes through. She does not water down the message. She reaches out with the truth and with a healthy sense of humor. It is an honor for me to recommend this beautiful and capable Catholic Christian for your next talk, retreat, or parish mission.
Normally, I ask a priest to give our annual parish mission, but this year, after I saw Mrs. Watkins give her talk at my parish, called, “Why Be Catholic,” I knew I wanted only her for our parish mission. She is learned, erudite, and she preaches with such passion and conviction. The parishioners loved her, and when I saw what she was all about, I trusted her implicitly.
I recently heard Christine Watkins speak for a Magnificat Women’s Ministry. From hearing her powerful witness, I was very inspired and energized to draw even closer to Jesus. She was so engaging that I just wanted to hear more and more. Her approach to speaking is very relatable and humorous, and I know that anyone would be inspired by her. She received a standing ovation.
Christine Watkins speaks with a prayerful fervor that deeply touches people. Discover for yourselves how Christine’s sharing and remarkable conversion story witness to the joy of a Christ-centered life. She truly embodies a genuine “zeal for souls,” attending to the Holy Spirit and delighting in the Church’s relationship with Mary as our Mother and model disciple. At God’s behest, Christine is “a woman on a mission,” and we are all the better for it!
