We were thrilled to be able to sit down with Fr. John Eckert, Pastor of Sacred Heart Parish in Salisbury, North Carolina. We talked about our recent digital series, The Sacred Heart, and the conversation took us all over, exploring the love of Christ and how it operates in each of our lives.
We talked about how to truly encounter God's love in our hearts, the importance of the Blessed Sacrament, the ways that he Precepts of the Church are underrated, how to pray better when you're busy, how the Sacred Heart stops you from being lukewarm as well as the balance between "the head" and "the heart" in the spiritual life.
