Daniel Mattson

Daniel Mattson is a writer and public speaker who focuses on sharing the good news of the Catholic Church's teaching on sexuality and chastity. The story of his conversion to the Church from a life of active homosexuality is one of the three stories featured in the Courage Apostolate's new documentary, Desire of the Everlasting Hills.

He entered into full communion with the Catholic Church in 2010, primarily because of the Catholic Church's teaching on homosexuality. His message is simple: the path to fulfillment and peace for the person who lives with same sex attractions can only be found in the teachings of the Catholic Church. He is a frequent speaker at events across the country, including at Catholic high schools, parishes, seminaries and Diocesan clergy gatherings and conferences. He often appears on Catholic Radio programs such as the Al Kresta Show, the Teresa Tomeo Show and Catholic Answers Live. He has been a guest on EWTN's, Life On The Rock, and will be appearing soon on the EWTN program Women of Grace. His writing has appeared in First Things, Crisis Magazine, Catholic Answers Magazine and other Catholic publications.

His personal blog is LettersToChristopher.wordpress.com, and his writing can also be found at JoyfulPilgrims.com.  He can be contacted for speaking engagements at [email protected]. When not speaking or writing, Daniel enjoys his career as a professional orchestral musician.
