PODCAST | Part Three: Ordinary Citizens at Work

[ View Transcript ]

Do you love your life and the world with passion?

In this podcast, Fr. Donncha Ó hAodha continues our mini-series on St. Josemaria’s homily Passionately Loving the World with a reflection on our call to profoundly love and serve the Lord in and through our ordinary circumstances, especially our work. Fr. Donncha shares that, although worldliness can receive a negative connotation, we are called to give witness to the love of Christ in our daily actions as God became incarnate so that we can see and experience the world through his eyes.

St. Josemaria explains: “A man who knows that the world – and not just the church – is the place where he finds Christ, loves that world. He endeavors to become properly trained, intellectually and professionally. He makes up his own mind, in full freedom, about the problems of the environment in which he moves, and he takes his own decisions in consequence” (In Love with the Church, no. 54).
