Audio Series: The Centrality of Love

Christoph von Schönborn is a Cardinal in the Catholic Church and the Archbishop of Vienna. His theological and pastoral work features friendship as a key theme, and it is enshrined in his motto which repeats Jesus’s words at John 15:15: vos autem dixi amicos (“I have called you friends”). In this clip Schönborn joins in conversation with Nicky Gumbel of Holy Trinity Brompton in London. They speak to a number of themes we’ve touched on in this issue, and several we haven’t, but all of which pivot on the “centrality of love” and the importance of friendship. Another, and perhaps more intimate, interview with Gumbel can be found here.
