What does it mean to think Christologically? How do you put Christ at the center of all thought? Intimacy with Christ is a goal in the Christian life, but the how and why for this goal are not easily understood. Michael Gormley and Dave VanVickle are joined by Fr. Gregory Pine, O.P. to discuss the difference between thinking about Christ and thinking with Christ.

In all things, seek the face of God.
Meet Our Guest: Fr. Gregory Pine, O.P.
Fr. Gregory Pine, O.P. is a Dominican friar (Order of Friars Preachers) of the Province of Saint Joseph, which is located in the Northeastern portion of the United States.
Crediting the intercession of St. Thomas Aquinas in his discernment, Fr. Gregory joined the Order after graduating from Franciscan University of Steubenville, where he studied math as well as humanities and Catholic culture. After being ordained as a priest in 2016, he served as parochial vicar at St. Louis Bertrand Parish in Louisville, KY, where he also worked as an adjunct professor at Bellarmine University. He then served as the assistant director of campus outreach for the Thomistic Institute based in Washington, D.C. He has completed the coursework for doctorate in dogmatic theology at the University of Fribourg in Switzerland, concentrating on the Christology of St. Thomas Aquinas, and plans to defend his dissertation soon.
Today, Fr. Gregory is an instructor of dogmatic theology at the Dominican House of Studies and an Assistant Director of the Thomistic Institute in Washington, DC.
In addition to his role as one of the hosts of Ascension’s new podcast Catholic Classics, Fr. Gregory is also a regular contributor to the popular podcasts Pints with Aquinas, Godsplaining, and The Thomistic Institute and has traveled widely to preach and teach the Catholic Faith.
When he’s not reading medieval tomes or administering the sacraments, Fr. Gregory spends his time enjoying great works of fiction and hiking in the nearby mountains.
