Our greater awareness of method and recourse to technology in theology today seems to be at the expense of prayer. Very few scholars teach or write as if they believe that contemplation is of any objective value to the theological enterprise or that mystical wisdom has any real importance for the life of the Church.
Dan Burke and Melissa Elson speak with Dr. Anthony Lilles about his book “Fire from Above: Contemplation and Mystical Wisdom” to explain the importance behind contemplative prayer and the reasons to make it part of one’s daily prayer life.
Dan Burke, Melissa Elson, and Dr. Anthony Lilles talk about how God works with our humanity to bring about holiness.
How should we treat those souls who have fallen away from the Faith? Dan, Melissa and Dr. Anthony Lilles discuss the wisdom of St. Therese of Lisieux on the power of intercessory prayer and the mercy of our Lord.
