Fr. Thomas concludes that Jesus has always encouraged us to go into our “inner room,” and Centering Prayer is one means to enter that room and consent to receiving God’s love. They also talk about the history of Fr. Keating’s spiritual path, and how while he was abbot of St Joseph’s he invited Eastern meditation teachers to instruct Christian monks in meditation. As the Eastern teachers presented their practices, Fr. Keating realized that Christianity was largely lacking such injunctions to help cultivate a direct relationship with God. His longing for contemplative practices as a a means to experience communion with the Divine Presence inspired the revival of Contemplative Christianity and the creation of the practice of Centering Prayer. These conversations are truly a blessing, and we invite you to watch!
