Ronald Rolheiser (Author)

Fr. Rolheiser, Ph.D, STD, a Roman Catholic priest, is the General Councillor for Canada for his order, the Oblates of Mary Immaculate. He is a community-builder, teacher, and writer, with offices in Toronto and Rome. He received his doctorate of sacred theology from the University of Louvain, Belgium. For most of the 28 years of his priesthood, he taught theology and philosophy at the Newman Theological College in Edmonton, Alberta. His books are popular throughout the English-speaking world and his weekly column is carried by more than seventy newspapers worldwide.

  1. In The Shattered Lantern: Rediscovering a Felt Presence of God, Ronald Rolheiser presents three contemplative traditions within Western Christianity which can be catalysts for everyday spirituality. Tapping into these resources we move beyond contemporary blocks to God such as narcissism, pragmatism, and restlessness. Rolheiser, a Catholic, believes that contemplation gives us methods to focus our awareness, to purify the heart, and to renew our sense of wonder. This book gives us reason to rejoice in ancient spiritual tools which can serve us well in the future.
