Title: WAYS OF PRAYER: A DESERT FATHER'S WISDOM - DISC 1 OF 7 (Includes CD 52340 to CD 52346)
This program, presented by Thomas Merton, consists of 18 lectures on 7 CDs. Join Thomas Merton in exploring one of the most influential mystical figures in the history of spirituality. Saint John Cassian (A.D. 360-435) lived when tensions between the traditional and innovative peaked. A monk and theologian, Cassian made the Christian tradition relevant for the needs of his day in his influential spiritual works, Institutes and Conferences. Indeed, his spirituality remains essential today; he influenced Saints Benedict and Ignatius of Loyola, and his works continue to be read today. Disc 1 includes 1. Introduction by Fr. Anthony Ciorra, Ph.D.; 2. Desires of the Flesh and the Spirit; and 3. The Life of Prayer.
