What is the spiritual space needed for an authentic love of neighbour?  Third-year student Christian Bekolay joins Nick as they reflect on the importance of detachment and poverty of spirit in answering this question, drawing on Christian's second-year ISP (Independent Study Project) entitled "The Empty Embrace: Detachment and Relationship". Ultimately, these spiritual realities makes possible an ‘Empty  Embrace’, a freedom for communion between one’s self, God, and each other. Find out showpage at www.StTherese.ca/podcast.

Hans Urs von Balthasar, a prominent 20th century theologian, once quipped that “all sin, essentially, consists in breaking out of time.” Therefore, he designates patience as the central virtue of Christian life.
