I met Father Keating and M. Basil Pennington at a weekend retreat held in Spenser, MA. Our Harvard Divinity School class on meditation, led by Harvey Cox, had to read Morton’s work, Contemplative Prayer and Chogyam Trungpa Rinpches book on Spiritual Materialism. We spent a weekend retreat steeped in both traditions and then had to write a paper on which tradiron we embraced as a life practice and why. Over 40 years later, I am still practicing Centering Prayer, using the Centering Prayer App and am still profoundly moved by the humility of power of Jesus Christ that I felt in the life of Father Keating. Finally, I read and studied many of his books. He is a great man who God used in a powerful way. May he rest in the presence, peace and power of our God in Christ,
