“Love is who you are. When you don’t operate according to love, you are outside of being. You’re not being real. When you love, you are acting according to your deepest being, your deepest truth.”—Richard Rohr
Richard Rohr, OFM, is a Franciscan priest, the founder of the Center for Action and Contemplation in Albuquerque, NM, and one of the most popular spiritual teachers today. Drawn from his many talks, books, and online Daily Meditations, this collection introduces many of the teachings for which he has become known, all organized around the central theme of Love.
Interwoven with a probing personal interview, the teachings gathered here illuminate Richard's lifelong journey of growing in love—a journey open to all who are willing: how we love God by loving others, how we learn to love ourselves, and how we ultimately seek and find love in everything. Experiences from Rohr’s life, both joyful and sorrowful, illustrate how the path has unfolded for him and how we each might come to know love more intimately.Joelle Chase and Judy Traeger edit Richard Rohr's Daily Meditations, a free email from the Center for Action and Contemplation (cac.org).
