PODCAST | Part Two: The Dangers of a Double Life
[ Transcript ]
Continuing our mini-series, “Passionately Loving the World”: In this podcast, Fr. Eric Nicolai shares a reflection on the dangers of keeping our faith solely within the confines of our personal life rather than allowing it to permeate every aspect of our life–from the church, to the office, and among friends. Fr. Eric encourages us to cultivate authentic friendships through which we can carry out the work of evangelization, seeking to bring the light of Christ into every corner of our world.
St. Josemaria explains: “We cannot lead a double life. We cannot be like schizophrenics, if we want to be Christians. There is only one life, made of flesh and spirit. And it is that life which has to become, in both body and soul, holy and filled with God: we discover the invisible God in the most visible and material things. There is no other way, my daughters and sons: either we learn to find Our Lord in ordinary, everyday life, or we shall never find him” (Conversations, no. 114).
As you pause and reflect today, in what area of your life do you need to more intentionally share and reflect the light of Christ?
