Venerable Matt Talbot: Feast Day June 19

Here is a link to information about Venerable Matt Talbot from the Archdiocese of Atlanta website. Please note the only inaccuracy in the article is that Father Downing did not “help Bill W formulate the 12 Steps in 1935” as Bill W did not meet Father Dowling until 1940.  However, Father Downing did become Bill W’s spiritual advisor.  Father Dowling introduced himself to Bill W after learning about the 12 Steps and went to show Bill W how closely related his 12 Steps were to the Spiritual Exercises of Saint Ignatius Loyola.  Click here for details about their initial meeting and subsequent relationship.
