Season 2 Episode 4
In this episode I take you on a journey to what I call “empathic devotion” to St. Joan of Arc using the phenomenological influence of St. Edith Stein. Having previously established in my own terminology the three characteristics of this phenomenology as clarity of mind, agility of thought, and pureness of heart, the natural extension of our model is empathy. St. Edith Stein wrote her doctoral thesis on empathy, which is a natural fit to her phenomenology. Join me as I discuss “sharing Joan’s mode of Being” through empathic devotion!
I am also the co-host of the Heroic Hearts podcast which is a spiritual adventure with St. Joan of Arc and St. Thérèse of Lisieux! Join us on the journey!
