    Adult Christianity and How to Get There

    Featuring Fr. Ron Rolheiser, OMI and Fr. Richard Rohr, OFM

    Frs. Ron and Richard use these talks to update a perennial and crucial theme: the need for adult Christianity. Both of these master teachers are able to make clear that we tend to do the “start up work” over and over again- identity, boundaries, law, structure and authority. As helpful as these are, they are only for the sake of an internalized identity and value structure, which finally allows us to live the life of faith, trust, surrender, darkness and service.

    Available in MP3 and CD.

  • The Passion of Christ

    The Passion of Christ

    Through scripture, and examples of life, Fr. Rolheiser gives new understanding and encouragement in how we can give our lives to the world and to also give our death to the world. When we think of passion, we think of Christ’s physical suffering and death, but in Agony in the Garden, the Gospels do not emphasize Jesus’ physical sufferings. The Gospel writers want us to understand Jesus the Lover who undergoes moral and emotional suffering without resentment or bitterness. Fr. Rolheiser explains that God’s strength comes when we are exhausted and open to being transformed. A profound and moving reflection, in two parts Part 1- 39:23, Part 2 – 49:05.

  • The Cross of Christ

    The Cross of Christ

    The Cross has become the ultimate symbol of love in the world. It is central to Christianity in that we are to forgive our enemies. As such, it is the single most revolutionary moral event that has happened on this planet. And, like all deep things in life, the Cross is largely a mystery. The Cross reveals God’s unconditional love and vulnerability. The Cross calls us beyond ourselves, our own agenda, our own life without resentment. This program is presented in two parts. Part 1 – 55:02, Part 2 – 50:15.

    Living in the Image and Likeness of God

    We are created in the image and likeness of God, but how often do we think about that? What does it really mean, in terms of our day-to-day lives and in our search for the divine? Rev. Ron Rolheiser takes you on a three-part journey through the scriptures, Gospels and the writing of theologians and scholars to describe the “struggles inherent in our Blessedness”, how it can be a source of perpetual disquiet and restlessness, and finally, how to live with the “Divine Fire” inside of us. As always, Fr. Rolheiser’s charm, humor, and scholarship make this presentation a memorable one for all those seeking a greater depth and understanding of their faith.

    Secularity and the Gospel: Being Missionaries to Our Own Children

    The toughest missionary task in the world today is communicating the faith to our own children. Secular culture, with its many distractions, has some particular resistances to the Gospel even as it contains much that is moral. Is secular culture post-Christian? How much is our culture a culture of life and how much is it a culture of death? How do we become missionaries inside of secular culture, missionaries to our own children?

    Sacred Fire: An Anthropology and Spirituality of Sexuality

    We are incurably sexual, deeply sexed not just in our bodies but in every dimension of our being. Sexuality is a powerful fire inside of us, the best of all fires and the most dangerous of all fires. It is also a sacred fire, meant to be enjoyed as God’s great gift to us even as it is guarded by chastity. This workshop will attempt to articulate both an essential anthropology and an essential spirituality of sexuality.

    Dark Nights and Doubts In Our Lives: A Failure of Faith-Or Imagination?

    Doubt and darkness do not necessarily mean that we are struggling with faith. They can just as easily mean that we are struggling inside our imagination and that God is purifying us. What is faith and why does it sometimes feel like its opposite? Dark nights of doubt – their origin, their meaning, their invitation.

    Join Fr. Rolheiser on this journey out of the darkness so many of us have experienced recently, back into the light.

  • The Incarnation: Keeping God in the Flesh

    The Incarnation: Keeping God in the Flesh

    God didn’t come to earth in the flesh for just 33 years. Christ didn’t leave us when he ascended into heaven. We, the Christian community, continue the Incarnation. We are the Body of Christ. We do not represent Christ, replace Christ, or become merely his mystical body. We ARE the Body of Christ and we continue to give physical flesh to God. This has astonishing implications for how we pray, seek healing, look for guidance, understand religious experience, and for how we “bind and loose” our loved ones. As only he can, Fr. Rolheiser brings the incarnation into focus and brings clarity to it’s meaning for you.

  • Mysticism: The Heartbeat of God

    Mysticism: The Heartbeat of God

    How do we live a mystically-driven life? What does it feel like? Your head tells you want you think is wise to do and your heart tells you what you’d like to do. Your mystical center is in a deeper part of you that tells you what you have to do. Mysticism is being touched and it’s being held and compelled by something that’s deeper than your head, your heart, your feelings, and your imagination.

    We all have mystical experiences, but we’re not all mystics. Father Rolheiser shares examples of others such as Thomas Merton, Henri Nouwen and Ruth Burrows, OCD as well as some major world religions that benefit from getting in touch with their mystical souls. Father Rolheiser shows how living out of mysticism is what frees us up to live true lives, to live noble lives and ultimately to live meaningful lives.
