On today's podcast we are reminded, for our contemplation, of the words Pope Benedict XVI offered on the meaning of freedom:
“Who is freer than the One who is the Almighty? He did not, however, live his freedom as an arbitrary power or as domination. He lived it as a service. In this way he ‘filled’ freedom with content, which would otherwise have remained an ‘empty’ possibility of doing or not doing something. . .freedom draws its meaning from love . . .”
If it is true happiness that we are looking for when seeking freedom, then we should observe the actions of Jesus Christ. He himself showed us how to be obedient to God the Father no matter the cost. And, in return, God the Father nourishes Jesus’ strength to carry out his act of love for the Father. This is the model the saints chose to follow and it would be wise for us to do the same.

St Josemaria Institute Podcast
An excellent series bringing to life the christian journey according to the liturgical calendar of the Church. The 7 episodes so far for Lent, ie Ash Wednesday, each of the five Sundays of Lent and, most recently, Palm Sunday are quite remarkable. I especially like the use of anecdotes from daily life, and from classic literature, and how they are woven into the podcast so naturally. Kudos to Fr Javier.
