PODCAST | The Decision to Follow Christ

[ Podcast Transcript ]

In your decision to follow Christ, how can you become more in love with Jesus and never let that love grow stale?

In this podcast, Msgr. Fred Dolan reflects on how the grace received in responding to our vocation to follow Christ gives us a lense through which we can continue to grow in loyalty, fidelity and constancy. With this spiritual outlook, maintaining our daily practice of prayer to keep our focus on Christ, we are encouraged to forge ahead through those moments in which we may encounter spiritual dryness and disillusionment. Msgr. Dolan reminds us that it is also through offering simple aspirations and sticking to a daily plan of prayer each day that we are able to persevere in the face of temptation and remain faithful in our relationship with Christ.

Saint Josemaria explains: “You told me that God sometimes fills you with light for a while and sometimes does not. I reminded you, firmly, that the Lord is always infinitely good. That is why those bright days are enough to help you carry on; but the times when you see no light are good for you too, and make you more faithful” (Furrow, no. 341).
