The Brothers Grodi & Continual Conversion - Deep in Christ, Episode 26

June 17, 2021

As a way of previewing the next "season" of Deep in Christ, brothers JonMarc & Fr. Peter Grodi take some time to reflect on their spiritual journeys and the nature of our walk with Christ as a journey of continual conversion.

They look back on their own family's story of continual conversion, including their memories of what it was like to be small children when their father, Marcus Grodi, left his role as a Presbyterian pastor to enter the Catholic Church.

As JonMarc and Fr. Peter discuss, the Christian journey is “continual” on many levels: our individual need for ever greater personal surrender, growth, and transformation; our journey of receiving and passing on faith in the context of family and community, and finally, our faith as a Church, wounded by sin, weakened and ever in need of renewal, but still, mysteriously the holy “bride of Christ” that we must not abandon.

Eat to Live, Don’t Live to Eat - Deep in Christ, Ep. 24

June 3, 2021

In this episode of Deep in Christ, JonMarc and Fr. Peter Grodi look at temperance with regards to one of our most common and basic human desires: food.

We don’t “live to eat”, but God has indeed designed us to seek out and eat good food for the nourishment of our bodies and to “break bread” with others for the nourishment of our souls.

Temperance is the habit of soul by which we submit our natural human desires and drives — disordered, as they are, by original and personal sin — to reason and to grace, so that we can love God and neighbor better. By cultivating the Cardinal Virtue of Temperance, we open ourselves to the necessary grace to order our desires in a way that honors God.
