Reflections with Ron Rolheiser

In this thought-provoking and soul-searching video series, Fr Ron Rolheiser poses many pertinent questions and offers profoundly rich insights into the deep mystery at the heart of our being.  His reflections are accompanied by images, music and silent reflection, all woven together to create a truly sacred and heart-warming experience.

Each of the 10 episodes begins with one of the following questions:

  • What comes spontaneously to mind when you hear the word “spirituality”?
  • “Our hearts are restless until they rest in God”. Is this your experience?
  • When is your heart at rest?
  • What’s the difference between living in restlessness and living in solitude?
  • How do you conceive your “deepest centre”, the centre of your soul?
  • Why are there dark corners in our minds and hearts? Why are we afraid to go there?
  • What ultimately alienates us from each other?
  • How do you understand the deep hungers, desires, and lusts within yourself?
  • Do you still live with your childhood fears of God?  Do you ever wonder what God looks like?
  • Is gratitude the real solution to our longing and restlessness?
