There’s a lot of confusion about love these days.
That needs to change.
On this episode of the Art of Catholic, we’ll peel back some of the deeper layers of love.
In fact, we’ll get to the heart of Christian love.
My guest wears spectacles and dark socks with his tennis shoes, but can still drain 3’s in a pickup game.
His name is Dr. Michael Healy and he’s the former Academic Dean at Franciscan University of Steubenville.
He’s smart. And this is his specialty.
His “Nature of Love” course at Franciscan literally changed my life. It opened me up to deeper understanding of the reality and demands of love.
(And it helped me convince his daughter to marry me:).
Now I want to share him with you on this episode of the Art of Catholic. He’s an expert in the texts of St. John Paul II, among others, and is going to enlighten us all with some of the philosophy of love that every one of us needs to understand in order to fulfill the Gospel of Jesus Christ.
This is obviously a huge topic and there’s a lot more to say. That said, we get to a good portion of it in this very enlightening conversation. Among other things he’ll answer:
- How should Catholics approach the topic of love?
- Is there a difference between love of neighbor and love of God?
- Can we have a truly disinterested love?
- Why is love so often the occasion for sin?
- What is the relationship between sex and love?
- Can we call same-sex attraction love?
- Is the religious life is an objectively higher calling than marriage?
- What about marriage in heaven?
It’s a fascinating conversation you’re not going to want to miss.
P.S. I’m heading back to Italy! Join me in March 2019 for an amazing pilgrimage to Rome, Assisi, Orvieto, LaVerna, and much, much more!
