Timothy Radcliffe, OP, explains that at its truest, dialogue is the conversation that makes our hearts burn within us; it is an encounter with the Lord, the stranger on the road. Evangelization happens in our conversation with strangers and as we communicate in the grace-filled event. It is in these moments that we experience the hilaritas of God's grace and discover his presence in friendship.
Timothy Radcliffe, OP, author, itinerant preacher, and lecturer, was the master of the Order of Preachers (Dominicans) from 1992 to 2001. He is the author of Stations of the Cross (Liturgical Press, 2014) and Stations of the Cross: Community Prayer Edition (Liturgical Press, 2015).
