Faith and Sacraments: Responding to Revelation (Part Two)

Dave “The Dialogical Nature of the Sacramental Economy” VanVickle and I continue our discussion about the relationship between faith and the sacraments, diving into how the Trinity reveals itself to us sacramentally and how that embodied revelation requires a tangible response from us.

Snippet from the Show

The angels don’t use the senses in order to come to knowledge but we human beings need the senses. When God reveals himself, he always does it in a mode we can receive him. Therefore, the gateway to heaven is the humanity that Christ assumed.”
