Friends, in this Q&A session with the Maronite clergy following my talk on the priesthood, I answered several questions, including:

  • Did Adam love Eve for the sake of God?
  • What is Mary’s role in Jacob’s ladder?
  • Do you have practical advice for people feeling confined by their vocation?
  • How should we pick our battles as we wrestle with the world?
  • How do you approach the concept of free will and reconcile it with our slavery to God?
  • What practical steps can we take in our parishes to keep people from disaffiliating from the Church?
