Does Jesus know us? Do we know Him? That is the provocative and somewhat disturbing title of a short book by the 20th Century swish theologian Hans Urs von Balthasar. We won’t talk about that book today, nor will we talk about that theologian. But we will talk about Jesus. About knowing Him, about Him knowing us, and about the crisis of forgetting Jesus, and the urgency of rediscovering Him in the Church and for the world today.

Host, Leonard DeLorenzo talks with Father Robert Imbelli. Father Imbelli is a priest of the Archdiocese of New York, he studied in Rome during the years of the Second Vatican Council, and was ordained there in 1965. He received degrees from the Gregorian University in Rome, and his PhD in systematic theology from Yale. He has taught Theology at the New York Archdiocesan seminary and at the Marnier school of Theology. From 1986 to 2015 Father Imbelli taught systematic theology at Boston College and is currently Associate Professor of Theology Emeritus from there. He was visiting scholar at Seaton Hall University in Spring 2017, and at St. Joseph’s Seminary in Dunwoodie, Spring 2018. His numerous articles and reviews appeared in such journals as Theological Studies, Worship, First Things, Commonweal, and America. His book, “Rekindling the Christic Imagination: Theological Meditations on the New Evangelization”, won a first-place award from the Catholic Publishers Association.
