LFT-8 The Indwelling Presence of God – Listening For Truth w/ Deacon James Keating- Discerning Hearts Podcasts

Episode 8-Listening For Truth When we come upon the Truth, we rest in it.  Our journey is over.  The Lord wants us to rest in Him.  We rest when we receive the truth about what is good for us and what is ethical.  Within us is the mind that can discern truth and receives it and then has that truth confirmed by the indwelling presence of God.  It’s in the still small voice that will confirm; we have to learn how to go inward to hear it.  To properly form conscience, we have to 1. Know who we are, 2. Find where we learn about moral truth: 3.  Discern who we go to with our questions.  The fullness of Truth is taught in the Church.

LFT-7 Resurrection and the Sacraments – Listening For Truth w/ Deacon James Keating- Discerning Hearts Podcasts

LFT-6 The Challenge of Moral Conversion – Listening For Truth w/ Deacon James Keating- Discerning Hearts Podcasts

 

Episode 6-Listening For Truth The difficult stage in moral conversion, not only leaving the sin behind, but also leaving the community of people who desire to hold on to that sin.  It might mean separating from family members, friends, etc, but the hope is that that may possibly follow if we hang in there in that witness of Truth.  Also, life doesn’t stop in our suffering. Many will come who are attracted to the change. How we love those in need will indicate growth even in the crucifixion.  The negative…we reject something, the positive…we embrace something.

LFT-5 The Reality of our Conscience – Listening For Truth w/ Deacon James Keating- Discerning Hearts Podcasts


Episode 5 -Listening For Truth
The Reality of Our Conscience.  What it is and what it isn’t.  The importance of proper formation…through the sacramental life, the Catechism of the Church and Sacred Scripture.  “Follow the Truth” is the beginning of the conversation, not “follow your conscience” in order to make the sacred decision.  Not to be passive but teachable is the goal.  The Marian deposition is the the model for moral formation.  Conscience is the judgement of the mind as it listens to the voice of Christ through the lives of the saints, the sacraments, the Catechism and Scripture in prayer.

Episode 9-Listening For Truth The supernatural virtues provide for us the gifts to walk and respond to moral truths.  We need to practice the virtues to receive the wisdom of God and to be more deliberate in the love of the good.  The theological, contemplative language is foreign to many, unlike the political language in which the culture swims, and that can affect how we respond to moral questions.  What can we do to listen and respond to Truth?
