PODCAST | Becoming a Grain of Wheat

In this podcast, Fr. Peter Armenio, a priest of Opus Dei, contemplates St. John’s definition of God as “infinite self-giving love” and how the more we willingly give of ourselves, the more we can experience the heart of Christ.

“If the grain of wheat does not die, it remains unfruitful. Don’t you want to be a grain of wheat, to die through mortification, and to yield a rich harvest? May Jesus bless your wheat-field!” (The Way, no. 199)
