Fr. James Wallace, Life of St. Paul of the Cross; Harry Kramer, Seek to Understand Before You are Understood

  • Fr. James gives a brief history of this mystic priest that founded the Passionists to lead a life of preaching and contemplation. Fr. James explains that the power in his homilies that often brought even the most hardened to tears was due to his intense prayer life. Many letters were found that share his spiritual direction to others.
  • Harry asks listeners if we as a society are truly seeking to understand someone who disagrees with us about an issue. Do we accept that there are bias out there that are polarizing and willing to listen to both sides of the story?
  • Harry suggests we do more listening and inquiring about how someone arrives at a certain conclusion and living out our beliefs with our actions.
