Longing for Freedom and Yet (Not) Afraid

A talk by Fr. Julián CARRÓN, President of the Fraternity of Communion and Liberation on the role of freedom in the pursuit of human desire. 

We all talk about freedom. But what is freedom and what is its origin? What does it have to do with desire and human fulfillment?  A great deal of uncertainty surrounds these questions. As a result, we find ourselves progressively replacing personal risk and responsibility with rules, policies, and risk management directives. It is as if we were afraid of experiencing too much freedom, and thus willing to trade it for one of its many palliatives. But what if freedom were not something to be regulated but plumbed to its depths?

Fr. Carron will discuss the relationship between desire, freedom, and human fulfillment.
