Wiser Words Than Mine
The final question I will leave with you is this: have you taken up Christianity or have you allowed Christ to take you over? Are Christians the masters of Christianity, deciding what it should be? Or is it Christ who, through his Spirit, takes hold of you and leads you where you do not want to go?
-Jean-Marie Cardinal Lustiger
Remember not the former things, nor consider the things of old. Behold, I am doing something new, do you not perceive it?
God, infinitely perfect and blessed in himself, in a plan of sheer goodness freely created man to make him share in his own blessed life.
-Catechism of the Catholic Church, #1
Why “LoveSpeaks”? Once, during a difficult time with a good friend, Fr. Ryan asked Jesus, “do I speak to this person or not?” The Lord responded, “Love speaks.” When Father Ryan asked what love says, Jesus replied, “Freedom.” The aim of the podcast is to talk about the Christian life, anchored in the Word of God, as a journey of freedom.
One day, long ago, in total freedom, God broke his own silence and spoke into the formless void. God is love. Therefore we can say that love speaks.
