Talk 1: God Sees Potential in Everything | 2023 Lenten Retreat: Who do you say that I am?

In this first talk of our 2023 Lenten Retreat, Damian introduces the theme of the retreat: Who Do You Say That I Am? The entire retreat is about seeing more clearly who God is and who we are in God’s eyes. Damian reflects on how God created us in God’s image and so knows us immediately before even forming us.
