Silent Compassion: Finding God in Contemplation
"Richard Rohr at his best...as he challenges us to develop a vision and discipline for what lies at the heart of all religion—compassion. This is a small book packing a big wallop." —Ronald Rolheiser, O.M.I.
In Silent Compassion: Finding God in Contemplation, Richard Rohr focuses on finding God in the depths of silence. The divine silence offers us peace, inviting us to have compassion for others and experience wholeness of being.
Silence is not just that which is around words and underneath images and events. It has a life of its own.... It is a being in itself to which you can relate. —from Chapter One
