True Freedom: Living in accord with human nature

with Fr. Christopher Lebsock, MD

True freedom, contrary to its current ‘absolute’ sense, is lived to its fullest when in accord with human nature.  Jesus Christ taught us how to be truly free, because he was truly human; living in perfect accord with that nature. What the contemporary and Christian understanding of freedom have in common is a “yes” to something other; while one leads to slavery, the other leads to great acts of love and attainment of true freedom. The perfect exemplar of this is Christ on the Cross.
