Show Notes

Christopher and Riley have guest Travis Patten back on the podcast to discuss the soul’s descent from, and ascent to, God in light of Dante Alighieri’s journey from that “point midway on our path in life,” when we find ourselves in “a dark wood, the right way blurred and lost,” unable to commence our ascent to Paradise, to the presence of God, the “love that moves the sun and other stars.” Only through our descent into the Inferno God created to reveal to us our false selves can we reach the point of ascent of the mount of Purgatory to purify ourselves to fly to God’s presence.
