Anthony Padovano brings his considerable cultural, philosophical, and religious insights to examining five major issues affecting spirituality today: Authenticity, community, commitment, behavior, and hope.
He draws upon the cultural heritage of the West reminding the listener of the wisdom to be found in the philosophers and poets of the ancient world and how timeless their insights are. He helps the listener to integrate these insights into Christian spirituality and the life and dynamism of the faith community. He gives people hope and affirms their capacity to make the right choices on their pilgrimage here on Earth. He stresses the need for freedom in seeking happiness and responsibility in making the correct decisions that helps a person fulfill his or her own call to live life fully which is the Creator's will for all.
The struggles and pain of life are dealt with in a concrete manner and the complexity of the motivations that rule our behavior is explored. His longing for a better, less violent world and his hope for a more and more humble approach to life from organized religion are clearly outlined.
