Clumsy Theosis - Run With Perseverance

Clumsy Theosis - Run With Perseverance

September 28, 2021

Sharing some wisdom from C.S. Lewis, Richaél Lucero explains why God doesn’t want rule followers. Instead he wants people who have a special quality of character. A quality that eggs them on to persevere. Like athletes who train even when they're tired and their muscles fatigued—God is conditioning us to be spiritual athletes.

Clumsy Theosis - How Temperance Actually Gives You More

Clumsy Theosis - How Temperance Actually Gives You More

September 20, 2021

What is today's formula for happiness? In a word, MORE. Happiness is to have it all, experience it all—and to the nth degree. This sounds nothing like the virtue of temperance. The irony is that when we practice temperance we end up with more. And this more actually satisfies. It's the Christian paradox! Listen as Richaél Lucero reveals how this is possible.

Clumsy Theosis - Courage, Dear Heart

Clumsy Theosis - Courage, Dear Heart

Richaél Lucero ties Lewis' work with scripture and Church teaching on courage in this episode. Listen as she demonstrates how the gift develops the virtue and their lasting effect.

Clumsy Theosis - Justice and the Gift of Piety

Clumsy Theosis - Justice and the Gift of Piety

August 16, 2021

Justice. Is it about punishment or vengeance? Many would say "yes." Jesus and the Church say "no." Mystic and saint, Bridget of Sweden said, "the source of justice is not vengeance but charity." As in love! And she was right! Richaél Lucero looks at the work of St. Thomas Aquinas to clarify the misunderstood virtue of justice. To show that it is rooted in love and for human flourishing. Plus the gift of the Holy Spirit that helps us to live the virtue of justice, piety.

Clumsy Theosis - The Virtues Gone Mad

Clumsy Theosis - The Virtues Gone Mad

July 30, 2021

Vices, bad. Virtues, good. Right? Not according to G.K. Chesterton. He'd say, when compared, "the virtues wander more wildly, and the virtues do more terrible damage." How is that possible?! That's what happens when they become isolated from the other virtues—especially prudence. Listen as Richaél Lucero breaks down how this can happen. And why it has a negative effect on a positive thing like a virtue. Plus why the Church Fathers would agree with Chesterton.

Clumsy Theosis - Breastplate of Righteousness: Spiritual Warfare and the Armor of God

May 1, 2021

Righteousness. It's common Christian jargon. But its meaning is often misunderstood. Combine it with a piece of armor—breastplate of righteousness—and it becomes more fuzzy. A fuzziness we can't afford in our spiritual warfare. Listen to Richaél Lucero for a clear explanation of the breastplate of righteousness. And its practical application in your daily battle.
