The Lord Loves Justice — Deep in Christ, Ep. 15

February 25, 2021

On this episode of Deep in Christ, hosts JonMarc Grodi and Fr. Peter Grodi examine the next of the four cardinal (or human) virtues: Justice, which is the habit of soul by which we readily recognize the web of relationships in which we live, order these relationships into a proper hierarchy, and then to act rightly in accord with each.

Justice is “to give each his due,” beginning, of course, with what is due to God Almighty. JonMarc and Fr. Peter will begin today to look at the nature of justice, to explore more the relationship between the theological and cardinal virtues, and to consider the demand of justice that we recognize and establish a right hierarchy of relationships and duties in our lives.

A Hermit Discusses Lent - Deep in Christ, Ep. 14

February 18, 2021

On this episode of Deep in Christ, JonMarc Grodi and Brother Rex Anthony Norris take some time to discuss the liturgical season of lent, and the traditional lenten practices of taking on additional prayer, fasting, and almsgiving.

They explore the place of penance in the life of the Christian, how each of us can begin today to enter into these lenten spiritual disciplines, and how we can keep the proper focus and emphases: on contrition for sins, denial of self, and a greater love and gratefulness toward our creator.

Prayer is the Relationship - Deep in Christ, Episode 13

Prayer is the Relationship - Deep in Christ, Episode 13

February 11, 2021

On this episode of Deep in Christ, we head back out to the hermitage for another discussion on Christian prayer with Brother Rex Anthony Norris, a diocesan hermit from Maine and member of the CHNetwork team.

Some people consider themselves to have a “pretty good” relationship with God, despite admitting that they never seem to be able to find or make time to pray.

However the Catechism of the Catholic Church insists, in the introduction to Part IV on Christian Prayer, that the personal relationship with God that Christians are called to “IS prayer”. We’ll explore this intriguing and challenging notion, while also looking at the mutual insights between our relationship with God and our relationships with other people.

February 4, 2021

On this episode of Deep in Christ, JonMarc and Fr. Peter Grodi look at two additional”perfections” of the virtue of Prudence: Solertia, the ability to remain prudent when faced with unexpected and/or bewildering situations, and Providentia, the ability to look at possible outcomes of a given decision with wisdom and faith.

We’ll look at how these qualities round out the virtue of Prudence and indicate additional practical steps for growth.
