Faith/Spirituality Forum: Contemplative Prayer by Fr. Thomas Keating
Contemplative Prayer by Fr. Thomas Keating QUESTION from Geny Rodriguez August 5, 2001 What is the stand of the Catholic Church as regards Fr. Thomas Keating's practice of Contemplative Prayer?
ANSWER by John-Paul Ignatius, OLSM on July 31, 2001 Dear Mr. Rodriguez:
Centering Prayer and the movement created by Fr. Keating should not be practiced by Catholics. I have already extensively written on this subject and have referred people to other articles by other people on this subject.
