Dr. Ray Guarendi is a wonderful Catholic communicator and psychologist and father of ten adopted children, known primarily for his radio talk show about family life and childrearing. I've heard him speak twice and dedicated my book Family Matters in part to him. He's very engaging and humorous in his talks and has a heart for apologetics as well as for family counseling.

The late Fr. Kevin Fete had the gift of humor in communication also. According to an obituary:
He was a good pastor, but he was also a great teacher. People were hungry for truth and for knowledge of the faith and he gave it to them. He was brilliant and insightful and had a great sense of humor. He saw things other people couldn’t see. That made him a tremendous homilist. He would grab people with his humor and, once he had them, he would drive home the point.

The man probably could have been a stand-up comic. He was extremely witty, extremely imaginative and had a tremendous sense of humor. But I would say just as humorous as he was and with his ability to joke and tease, he was as deeply spiritual and caring and compassionate.
So check out this special programming on EWTN. I give it my very highest recommendation:

I am watching your show right now (Baptism, Episode 6). I have to say I don't agree with the priest suggesting that the exchange of rings at a wedding ceremony is anything other than a symbolic representation of the important aspect of exchanging marriage vows. Inner belief about the sanctity of marriage is what matters...the rings are in fact only symbols. The commitment is the area to stress and the unfortunate statement that exchange of rings is anything more than symbolic I feel is truly misleading.
