Living For Freedom and In Freedom: Final Episode with John Ellison

In a paradoxical way, freedom can be used to choose more freedom... or to enter into bondage. John Ellison, a spiritual director in the Diocese of Joliet, shares his childhood best friend's story as an illustration of this conundrum.
How have you used your freedom this Easter season?
In this final episode of our Lenten/Easter series, John Ellison offers some spiritual direction that we might all benefit from as we consider the freedom for which Christ set us free.

Pray with Fr. James Guarascio this Easter

Living For Freedom and In Freedom: Episode 8 with Fr. James Guarascio

Fr. James Guarascio is a diocesan priest and member of the Joliet Companions of Christ. In this Easter reflection, he demonstrates the power of sharing testimony... by sharing his own vocation story with you.

Sharing the stories of God's work in our own lives is not just a way to encourage and strengthen others to accept Christ's freedom, it also helps cultivate our own gratitude and remain free. Testimony, when done right, is a gift to both the storyteller and the receiver of the good news. God has been powerfully at work in your life, too, so share your story!

We will continue with our next episode on Easter Wednesday!
