Be My Guest: Dr. Marcellino D’Ambrosio

Jeff Cavins

Jeff interviews Dr. Marcellino D’Ambrosio (a.k.a Dr. Italy), co-author of the new study Jesus: The Way, the Truth, and the Life. They talk about how Jesus comes alive for us today, how we can grow closer to him, and how to share him with others. 

Snippet from the Show

“When we share the Gospel, we’re not threatening, we’re inviting.”

SHOWNOTES

Some Women Accompany Jesus, Luke 8:1-3 – “Soon afterward he went on through cities and villages, preaching and bringing the good news of the kingdom of God. And the twelve were with him, and also some women who had been healed of evil spirits and infirmities: Mary, called Mag′dalene, from whom seven demons had gone out, and Jo-an′na, the wife of Chu′za, Herod’s steward, and Susanna, and many others, who provided for them out of their means.”

The Commissioning of the Disciples, Matthew 28:16-20 – “Now the eleven disciples went to Galilee, to the mountain to which Jesus had directed them. And when they saw him they worshiped him; but some doubted. And Jesus came and said to them, ‘All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. Go therefore and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all that I have commanded you; and lo, I am with you always, to the close of the age.’”

Lectio divina is the key to the new springtime

Pope Benedict XVI, of The Dogmatic Constitution on Divine Revelation“In this context, I would like in particular to recall and recommend the ancient tradition of Lectio divina: the diligent reading of Sacred Scripture accompanied by prayer brings about that intimate dialogue in which the person reading hears God who is speaking, and in praying, responds to him with trusting openness of heart (cf. Dei Verbum, n. 25). If it is effectively promoted, this practice will bring to the Church – I am convinced of it – a new spiritual springtime.”
