Theology on Tap - “Encountering Jesus Christ: Pope Francis & The Heart of Catholicism"
Thursday, June 19th
Phil will be talking about Encountering Christ in the New Evangelization, echoing Pope Francis’ invitation, “I invite all Christians, everywhere, at this very moment, to a renewed personal encounter with Jesus Christ, or at least an openness to letting him encounter them.” We’ll use Nicodemus’ “encounter” with Christ in the Gospel of John as a model.
