One of the things that characterizes the human person is that we alone, of all the creatures on earth, ask questions. Questions of ultimate significance. Questions that shape the way we think, the way we speak, and the way we live. For all of these questions, Christ is the Answer! He did it all so that you and I can share in God's own abundant, divine, and eternal life and joy.
Christ is the WAY, the TRUTH, and the LIFE. He is the image of the invisible God. He points us to our destiny. He reveals the dignity of the human person. He is the one who makes known the Father. Christ is the Answer! Take some time to listen to Fr John Riccardo's radio program, Christ is the Answer! You will be glad you did.
