Fr. Rob - Lord Show Us the Father
/

In this episode of the Catholic Link podcast, Fr. Rob discusses the little known Church council, the Second Council of Nicaea, which is the seventh ecumenical council in the Church’s history. Fr. Rob discusses what this council says about icons of God the Father. This church council affirms the use of icons to depict God the Son, Jesus, God the Holy Spirit, Mary, and the Saints. However, this council, as Fr. Rob explains, warns against the use of images of God the Father because they minimize the significance of the Incarnation and when Jesus says, “those who have seen me, have seen the Father.” We see the Father when we see and reflect on Jesus, the eternal Word made flesh. With images of God the Father, the reality of the Incarnation loses its impact. Jesus Christ is the one unique mediator between God and man.

Fr. Rob explains this little known theological point of the Church with the utmost charity. Please give it a listen. If you missed the previous Fr. Rob episode where he discusses the things he wants to try with the podcast, you can listen to that here. Thank you for listening. God bless.
