To Three Fathers and Three Mothers:

To my wife Judy\u2019s parents: Ray and Joan Kozora: thank you for your love and for raising that lovely woman with whom I am privileged and honored to share my life and all my heart and soul.

To our Father in Heaven: It is for Your sake that I engage in apologetics and evangelism, so that more people may know of You and the grace and truth of Your gospel message. All praise and glory and honor and adoration to You!

To the Holy Father, Pope John Paul II: you are my hero and one of the greatest popes of all time. The Church will forever benefit from your remarkable teachings and profound example of Christian discipleship.

To Holy Mother Church: My goal as a writer is to glorify God and also to help make better known the depth of the riches and fullness of the Christian faith, uniquely preserved in you by the Holy Spirit, for all time, and for one and all.

To the Blessed Virgin Mary: the Immaculate one, the Queen of Heaven, and our Spiritual Mother. To you was given the unfathomable honor of bearing and raising the incarnate God: our Lord Jesus. Please help me, by your intercession, to become a better follower of your Son.

. . . I have become all things to all men, that I might by all means
save some. I do it all for the sake of the gospel, that I may share
in its blessings.
(1 Corinthians 9:22-23)
