Centering prayer QUESTION from Don November 24, 1999 Greetings,
In a recent post you stated, Centering Prayer as taught by the Fr. Keating and others is contaminated with new age philosophies and eastern philosophies and notions not consistent with the Church. My parish is presently offering an ongoing study and classes on just this very topic. I admit I know nothing about this but I am now concerned for my fellow parishoners. Would you mind elaborating on this or providing additional references (web sites, etc.) on the truth of this practice?
ANSWER by John-Paul Ignatius on November 29, 1999 Dear Mr. Don:
The following three articles I think answer your question very well:
1) JUNG REPLACES JESUS IN CATHOLIC SPIRITUALITY
2) THE NEW AGE MYSTIC: DIFFERENT PATH, SAME GOD?
3) MENTAL PRAYER
