Season 2 of the podcast continues with a conversation with Timothy Radcliffe, OP! Fr. Radcliffe was in Chicago to give the Kennedy Lecture at Dominican University, where our own Dannis Matteson and John DeCostanza had an opportunity to speak with him. In their conversation, they talk about the young Timothy Radcliffe’s bad boy days, the importance of friendship for vocation, and hope in the midst of suffering.
