Matthew was raised in a broken home, experiencing the loneliness and isolation, which is so common today. At age 12, Matthew began using drugs, and after a number of years was totally hopeless, alone, and suicidal. Through the help of a friend, he surrendered his life to God, who showed up in a profound way.

In 2007, Matthew and his wife Demetra volunteered with the Missionaries of Charity in Calcutta India. As Matthew was holding a dying man, he experienced the Divine Love burning in him. Since then, Matthew has converted to Catholicism, sponsored many men into the Church, and been a FOCUS Missionary.

In July 2014, Matthew completed the Spiritual Exercises of St. Ignatius of Loyola where he experienced the call to remain with Jesus, and to lead others into this same intimacy. Matthew founded Sacred Heart Ministries to fulfill this call.
