Benedictine Monk Speaks about Politics of Fear, Contemplative Insight
5/16/2011
Photo: Fr. Laurence FreemanFr. Laurence Freeman, OSB, Director and Spiritual Guide of The World Community for Christian Meditation (WCCM), will speak on “Who is My Neighbor?: The Politics of Fear and the Contemplative Insight,” at 7 p.m., Tuesday, May 17 at St. Theresa Catholic Church, 6622 Haskell Street.

The lecture is sponsored by St. Theresa Catholic Church, the University of St. Thomas Center for Faith and Culture, Lay Spiritans and the World Community for Christian Meditation.

Fr. Freeman will explore how to more fully understand the seductions and dangers posed by the politics of fear, and to more fully grasp the transforming remedy of contemplative prayer.

Fr. Freeman, a Benedictine monk, is the Director and spiritual guide of The World Community for Christian Meditation. Inspired by his mentor, Fr. John Main OSB, Fr. Freeman works to recover Christianity’s own contemplative tradition, and travels worldwide teaching the unique role of meditation as a spiritual discipline.

WCCM is a kind of "monastery without walls," a family of national communities in more than 100 countries, dedicated to the practice and teaching of meditation in the Christian tradition as taught by Fr. John Main OSB, in the spirit of serving the unity of all. WCCM’s spiritual foundation is the local meditation group, which meets weekly in homes, parishes, offices, hospitals, prisons, schools and colleges - everywhere that people live and seek.

A reception will precede the lecture at 6:30 p.m. The lecture is free and open to the public. For more information, contact Claudia Morgan at 713-416-0671.
