Fr. Martin Laird on Contemplation

I commend this video to you, of Fr. Martin Laird, OSA, from the PBS series Religion and Ethics Newsweekly.  It is a wonderful demonstration of how anchoring ourselves in this contemplative lineage bears fruit in our lives.

His argument is particularly profound: we must be contemplatives first, and then we can embody love in the world.  Much to reflect on.
