Bishop William Byrne discusses his new practical and engaging guide to embracing happiness, “5 Things with Father Bill: Hope, Humor, and Help for the Soul.” Bishop Byrne offers viewers insights, reflections, and encouragement to enhance ordinary days and holidays. Join us for what is sure to be a witty and endearing conversation.

About the book:

For almost a decade, popular priest and YouTube personality Fr. Bill Byrne wrote a column titled “5 Things” for his local church newspaper featuring five life hacks, prayer starters, or spiritual meditations to help readers grow closer to God and appreciate the small—but vital—things in life.

Filled with wisdom and whimsy, readers will learn:

  • ways to conquer fear,
  • how to be a genius,
  • the power of blessings and prayers,
  • saints to emulate,
  • tips for Lent, Easter, Advent and Christmas, and even lessons from Maggie, Fr. Bill’s pet Labrador retriever.

Witty and endearing with hands-on, real world advice, 5 Things with Father Bill makes the perfect gift for readers looking for a burst of inspiration and a dose of good cheer.
