The Christian Meaning of Enlightenment
ANNUAL EVELYN UNDERHILL LECTURE IN CHRISTIAN SPIRITUALITY
July 10, 2010
Presenter: Richard Rohr, O.F.M., founding director, Center for Action and Contemplation, and popular author
In this lecture Fr. Rohr presents the results of his research on the contemplative mind and tradition. He believes contemplation teaches people an alternative way of reading reality that is non-dualistic, and therefore allows people to love enemies, forgive offenses, live with paradox and mystery, and "know" God. Its loss is at the heart of the religious discouragement and regression today. Its rediscovery is at the heart of our deepest hope.
