The first act of Christ’s ministry was to preach the message of metanoia. Do you want to know exactly what Christ has called us to? Listen as Richaél Lucero defines the meaning of metanoia. In the process she’ll expose why popular synonyms used to explain metanoia don’t paint the full picture; and leave you with suggestions for preparing three areas of yourself for metanoia.
The heart plays a distinguished role in prayer. For this reason spiritual writers refer to the heart as an *altar.* Richaél Lucero surveys the centrality of the altar in Judaism and Catholicism to refresh our approach to prayer, esteem the majesty of our hearts, and renew our zeal for the significance of the altar in the liturgical celebrations of the Mass/Divine Liturgy.
