I am so grateful that Richard Rohr, OFM, is always ahead of me in the wild-erness of Life in G-D. From cassette tapes in the 80’s, to CD’s to youtube, he has had the generosity and passion for sowing the seeds of Wisdom far and wide.
A member of the Monday night group, Listening @ Pathways, sent a link to this teaching on contemplative prayer. It is not “new.” It is a classic example of Perenniel Wisdom. How do we become transformed people in service of a transforming world? Father Richard suggests that it is through suffering — and contemplative prayer — that we are transformed.
