August 02, 2013 Length: 32:30
Frederica discusses an email message she wrote that eventually become a post on Rod Dreher's blog at The American Conservative. In it she explains her view that trying to experience Christ exclusively with your brain and outside the Church is a futile endeavor—a stance that was not well-received by the blog's many readers.
"I am getting so much from this huge resource. I am a Catholic but feel very close to you guys with your inspiring love of Tradition, the Fathers, the liturgy, monasticism. It's so easy to be a rootless Christian today, only superficially connected or even severed from these treasures. Please pray for me as I will for you and your ministry."
