The Art of Looking Sideways at the Church


Is there a “wisdom way” of looking at the support system that we call the church?

Fr Richard Rohr is a Franciscan priest of the New Mexico Province. He lives in a hermitage behind his Franciscan community – the Center for Action and Contemplation – in Albuquerque, New Mexico, where he presently serves as founding director.
