Fr. Goergen helps you appropriate the spiritual wisdom of centuries passed so that you might deepen your interior life and relationship to God. His expert guidance will prepare you to face the challenges presented by our world and the Catholic Church today.
Topics such as Word and Sacrament, friendship and justice, joy and sadness are grounded in our innermost yearning for the living God. Contemplation is understood not as something for monks and nuns alone, but also as the natural culmination of life with Christ.
We are all called to be contemplative, and in fact the promotion of a more contemplative consciousness has become an important social ministry for our times. These spiritual talks will assist you in exploring what it means to live in the spirit, give one's life to Christ, or live out of one's innermost and truest self.
