Rob Marco is a happily married father of three living in southeastern Pennsylvania. After a few years in high school exploring Buddhism and Hare Krishna, he had a profound conversion experience of encountering Christ and converted to Catholicism in 1998, his freshman year of college. In 2002 he moved to the inner-city to help run a Catholic Worker house of hospitality for homeless men with drug and alcohol addictions and to minister to the poor. He spent ten years discerning a vocation to monastic life, and at one point sold everything he had and bought a school bus, which he renovated to live in as an urban hermit on the streets of Philadelphia. Rob is active in the work of the New Evangelization, starting a Catholic street evangelization apostolate in his area to share the Good News of Jesus Christ, and regularly visits men incarcerated in prison. He holds a B.A. in Geography from Penn State University, and a M.A. in Theology from Villanova University. He writes about faith, family, chastity, and Catholic manhood at “Wisdom and Folly” (www.robthefob.blogspot.com)
