Fr. Thomas and Fr. Laurence Conversing

After a full day of giving presentations and dialoging, signing books and interacting with scores of people, Fr. Thomas and Fr. Laurence in their generosity were gracious enough to respond in an intimate setting to a question: What relevance does the contemplative dimension of life have for the modern world given its considerable financial, ecological, social and other problems?

What a gift this blog has been for me, to feel like I am with you there in Spirit from here in Toronto. Thank you all for the time and love you put in this, to have extended the boundaries of the Conference. Maybe next year I'll be able to join in person, too. Peace, manuela

I did not make it to the Conference but am so happy to have these nourishing, sustaining ideas available to me in this blog. Thank you to all who made this event and blog a reality.

I've passed this on to my pastor, something I rarely do unless the material is deeply moving to me, as this video and the preceeding excerpt were.

Blessings,
Jennifer

Jennifer - how good to hear the good of this blog spreads from your action - like a radiating flower.
