Thomas Dubay on Contemplative Prayer

I don’t see entirely eye to eye with Fr. Thomas Dubay (among other things, he is opposed to centering prayer as too “oriental” a practice), but nevertheless he is probably my favorite conservative Catholic teacher on contemplative practice. So I’m delighted to learn that he has a podcast on the topic. Click here to listen and/or download the podcast. I haven’t had a chance to listen to this particular series, although I’ve enjoyed a CD series on contemplative prayer he did a while back. Check out the various episodes, with titles like “Wonder and Enrichment,” “Meditational Contemplation” and “Teresa (of Avila) and Contemplation.” Should be worth a listen.
