161: How to Die to Yourself (w/ Father Jeffrey Kirby)

161: How to Die to Yourself (w/ Father Jeffrey Kirby) June 8, 2022

In this episode of The Cordial Catholic, I’m joined by Father Jeffrey Kirby, STD to talk about ascetical theology: the ancient and holy Catholic practice of dying to yourself. We dig deeply, with Fr. Kirby as our guide, into how understanding the purpose of our lives, through a knowledge of Scripture and God’s plan, we can more fully and truly live out our Catholic lives and vocations.

It’s a really fascinating, fun, and in-depth conversation – as it always is when Father Kirby stops by!
