About the conference

Who Do You Say That I Am?

Getting the answer right to the most important question ever asked leads to a fulfilled life, rich in hope, joy, and meaning. It also leads to the “narrow gate,” which the Author of the question tells us few will find.  Getting the answer wrong, or settling for a superficial answer, as some Catholics do, leads to a life where our passions control our choices, and to the “wide gate,” which that Author says many will enter.

The most quoted line of the Second Vatican Council makes clear what’s at stake: “Christ the New Adam, in the very revelation of the mystery of the Father and of his love, fully reveals man to himself and brings to light his most high calling.”  In other words, only Jesus Christ can tell me who I am supposed to be. Only he and his Body, the Church, will secure me on the path to Heaven.  Success in terms of the Gospel means, not fitting Jesus into my life, but fitting my life into His life, now and in eternity.

If you want to know better the person of Jesus Christ, His divinity and humanity, His teachings and virtues, His ministry and His Passion, and if you want to grasp what all these mean for you, don’t miss this conference!
