PODCAST- Episode 2
When Kennedy went to study with a Japanese Zen master, the Buddhist told him: " 'I do not want to make you a Buddhist. I want to empty you in imitation of your Lord Jesus Christ who emptied himself and poured himself out.' This is at the heart of what it means to be Catholic. To follow Christ is to empty ourselves." He continues: "I remember thinking then, 'This Buddhist might make a Christian of me yet.' It was so profoundly Christian and beautiful."
NO! CHRIST MAKES YOU THE CHRISTIAN!
HE IS THE WAY THE TRUTH AND LIFE!
THERE'S ONE TRUE TRINITY:
