Fr. Michael Byron
In one of the most timeless passages in the Gospel of John, Jesus invites his disciples to love one another with a love rooted in himself. He calls them no longer servants, but friends, and compels them to follow and live in harmony with the way he follows and dwells in the love of the Father. Join Fr. Michael Byron, a theologian and pastor of St. Pascal Baylon Catholic Church in St. Paul, to explore how this abiding love might still infuse the modern Christian life. Register Online.
