WASHINGTON (CNS) -- Father Julian Carron, the Spanish priest who leads the ecclesial Communion and Liberation movement, has one piece of advice for Catholics in this 21st-century world.
Accepting the mystery that is Christ, he
explained, will to help shape and guide one's life and bring about new relationships and a new understanding of what it means to live life fully.
It's a simple premise, he
said, but one he
knows that people have difficulty accepting or understanding.
"(If) we have met Christ, this introduces something new in our life," he
told Catholic News Service
prior to his
presentation at The Catholic University of America
"In the way we're dealing with everything, we can convey that there is another way in dealing with everything.
Father Carron, who has led Communion and Liberation since 2005 after the death of the movement's founder, Father Luigi Giussani, said people often seek complex answers to help face the difficulties posed by everyday life.
Father Carron, 61, first became aware of Communion and Liberation after serving as a priest for years after his 1975 ordination.
