Love Winter When The Plant Says Nothing

Praying When Our Hearts Are on Ice


An Online Lecture and Interview featuring Jonathan Montaldo and Father Vincent


We examine and discuss texts and poems by Merton to inspire prayer this Advent Season. Jonathan Montaldo will lead us in two morning sessions on contemplative prayer, grounded by emptiness of heart but not of hope when “It’s dark and the dragons come and there is no more beer” [Merton]. In the early afternoon Fr. Vincent Pizzuto will interview Jonathan Montaldo on Merton’s legacy as an exemplary practitioner of contemplative prayer and social commentator.
