Richard Kennedy
And so we come to an idea that I've long carried around...that we are a "trinity" made in God's image.

We have our mind to be united to God the Father's mind. We have our body to be united to God the Son's body and finally our emotions (heart) to be united to God the Spirit's zeal.

This seems to be the easy way for me to understand the completion of our mission on earth.

Father Barron, you are so right sbout the many "voices of authority" competing for our attention. We need only to look to Christ through his Church for true authority in every aspect of our lives.

Richard Kennedy, CS Lewis once said the heart is the liaison officer between the mind and the appetite (body). Dosteovsky's portrayal of the Karamazov brothers, Mitya (appetite), Vanya (intellect), and Alyosha (heart) also seem to attest to this idea of the trinitarian nature of humanity.

thank you, Father Barron, for disecting the Word of God very clearly. It is appropriate in our day and age. For even w/in the church there are Bad Spirits that ignore the Gospel of Life, yet we profess that Jesus is the Word but ignore the Teachings of His Church.

I enjoy listening Fr. Barron's teaching. Although English is not my first language, it is not difficult for me to follow his teaching. Thanks Fr and God bless you!

The only problem with that is1) We are certaed in the divine image. And we were certainly included in God's statement that everything He certaed was good. Certainly the fall (whether believed in literally or figuratively) changes that initial state of goodness. But there is still plenty good reason to understand humanity as (in some way) good.2) More to why I would mention it The oft-heard cry of the non-believer about perfectly good and decent people is easily (ha!) sidestepped because . goodness is not the point. I might be totally wrong about this, but I can't think of any scriptural support for the idea that good is a desirable (or possible) trait in humanity, nor a pre-requisite for any of God's blessings (including salvation).Now- don't get me wrong. I agree with what you're getting at here.But I think, particularly for the sake of that incredulous non-believer (as well as, really, lots of liberal Christians) that it's important to realize that our varying opinions/beliefs about humans and their general worth really should not affect what we believe about our need for Jesus.
