In this “Year for Priests,” Marcus asks guests to choose Scripture verses that have specifically inspired them to follow Jesus. Marcus welcomes Rev. Brother Joseph Anthony Giambrone, O.P.. Fr. Anthony is a priest in the Dominican Province of St. Joseph. In true Dominican fashion, he really focuses on dissecting the Book of James’ history, context, style, language, and meaning. What does it mean to be a “first fruit” of God’s creation? Did the Catholic Church ever dissuade Catholic from reading the Bible?
Scripture verse: James 1: 16-18
