Through Scripture and examples from life, Fr. Rolheiser gives new understanding and encouragement in how we can give our lives to the world and to also give our death to the world. When we think of passion we think of Christ's physical suffering and death but in the Agony in the Garden, the Gospels do not emphasize Jesus' physical sufferings.
The Gospel writers want us to understand Jesus the lover, who undergoes moral and emotional sufferings without resentment or bitterness. Fr. Rolheiser explains that God's strength comes when we are exhausted and open to being transformed. A profound and moving reflection in two parts with a live audience.
Fr. Ron Rolheiser, OMI. Is a Missionary Oblate of Mary Immaculate, a specialist in the fields of spirituality and systematic theology and president of Oblate School of Theology in San Antonio, Texas. This program is presented in two parts.
