Freedom is tied into the very identity of God, and who we as his children made in his image and likeness. Understanding the real meaning of freedom revealed to us by Christ, will allow us to properly respond to the evils of our world and build a more just and virtuous society. As Catholics, our liberty must ultimately point to the participation in the Divine life.
Snippet from the Show
“Real liberty is the ability to make a gift of oneself.”
Freedom is tied into the true, the good and the beautiful!
“For this reason the Father loves me, because I lay down my life, that I may take it again. No one takes it from me, but I lay it down of my own accord. I have power to lay it down, and I have power to take it again; this charge I have received from my Father.”- John 10:17-18
“Every generation of Americans needs to know that freedom consists not in doing what we like, but in having the right to do what we ought.”- St. John Paul II
Meet Your Host: Colin MacIver
Colin is an enthusiastic transplant to vibrant Louisiana, where he lives with his beautiful wife Aimee and two energetic children, Leo and Zélie. His juggling act involves being a husband, a dad, a teacher, a youth minister, a musician and a national Ascension content creator and trainer.
In his spare time, he eats too many crawfish, savors king cake, plays one-on-one kickball with his son, and tries, for the life of him, to properly load the dishwasher.
My first time listening to your podcast. Well done! Pursuing God is freedom…you are so right. That has been my pilgrimage these last couple of years. I’ve never felt so free as when I pursue the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.
