Announcing…the “Pondering Things Catholic” podcast with Fr. Paul Gros!
On today’s episode of the Faith & Good Counsel show we have the gift of getting to know a bit about Fr. Paul Gros, and his new podcast being produced in the Faith & Good Counsel studio.
We had a lot of fun with this episode, with “becoming acquainted” with Fr. Paul in the first segment, and in the second segment heading into an idea of what you can expect from the episodes “in the can”.
There’s also a little something new that I’m debuting in this episode – the first Faith & Good Counsel Inspirational Minute! You’ll hear this one tucked nicely between today’s two show segments.
I simply know you will come to love Fr. Paul as I have. You might consider having your prayer journal and scripture handy – his episodes may just be some of those that pique a the desire to take out your favorite pen and jot some notes for pondering:)
As you will find over time, Fr. Paul has a gift for piercing right to the heart with theology + overall health and wellness, and you’ll have a taste for that in his first episodes:
- Perfectionism, and Broken God & Self-Images
- Twisted Roots of Our Present Pain & Suffering
- The Delusion of Control
Following these, you can look forward to discussions dealing with forgiveness amidst deep hurt, scrupulosity, and how to respond to ourselves and others in and through the Sacred Heart of Christ (which might just be my favorite episode thus far:).
And more to come!
The truth is that only in the mystery of the incarnate Word does the mystery of man take on light. For Adam, the first man, was a figure of Him Who was to come, namely Christ the Lord. Christ, the final Adam, by the revelation of the mystery of the Father and His love, fully reveals man to man himself and makes his supreme calling clear. It is not surprising, then, that in Him all the aforementioned truths find their root and attain their crown.
He Who is “the image of the invisible God” (Col. 1:15), is Himself the perfect man. To the sons of Adam He restores the divine likeness which had been disfigured from the first sin onward. Since human nature as He assumed it was not annulled, by that very fact it has been raised up to a divine dignity in our respect too. For by His incarnation the Son of God has united Himself in some fashion with every man. He worked with human hands, He thought with a human mind, acted by human choice and loved with a human heart. Born of the Virgin Mary, He has truly been made one of us, like us in all things except sin. (Gaudium et spes 22-24)
