    Description

    Over the last year we have witnessed an increase in racism, xenophobia, misogyny, and other forms of fear of the 'other' in our society. This workshop explores the rich spiritual traditions of Francis of Assisi and the late Trappist monk and writer Thomas Merton to provide us with resources for prayer and action. Francis is widely recognized, by believers and nonbelievers alike, as one of the world's great spiritual masters and peacemakers, a prophet whose insights continue to speak to a broken world. Merton was described by Pope Francis in 2015 as "above all a man of prayer, a thinker who challenged the certitudes of his time and opened new horizons for souls and for the church. He was also a man of dialogue, a promoter of peace between peoples and religions."
