Fr.Richard Rohr: What is the Meaning of Life?



Formed by the “Perennial Tradition” and my own Catholic Christianity, I believe that the meaning of life is found in a growing capacity for union with widening circles of life and suffering, which first and final circle is often called God.

~Fr.Richard Rohr, O.F.M. is a globally recognized ecumenical teacher bearing witness to the universal awakening within Christian mysticism and the Perennial Tradition. He is a Franciscan priest of the New Mexico Province and founder of the Center for Action and Contemplation (CAC) in Albuquerque, New Mexico. Fr. Richard’s teaching is grounded in the Franciscan alternative orthodoxy—practices of contemplation and self-emptying, expressing itself in radical compassion, particularly for the socially marginalized.
