I am so blessed to have been able to have this conversation with him! I hope it whets your appetite to read his works. He asked me to give you the link to an entire course on prayer online that will soon be published as a book. You can find it at Dan Burke’s spiritualdirection.com website at this link.
Lisa Nicholas [Please see podcast with Lisa Nicholas on the podcasts page!] had introduced me to David Torkinton late last year. I found reading his book Wisdom from the Christian Mystics: How to pray the Christian way and other writings on the web revitalized my prayer life. His writings prompted me to muse whether a key to evangelization in the Ordinariates for Catholics of Anglican tradition was to make our parishes Schools of Prayer.
Over Lent, a group of us from our parish held a Lenten School of Prayer during which we read Wisdom from the Christian Mystics together. The school migrated online once the pandemic shutdown began.
Thank you to Tim Motte for the beautiful production of this video. The music is the Sanctus by Herbert Howells in the Collegium Regale that was sung at the Mass of Thanksgiving that opened the Anglican Tradition in the Catholic Churchconference in Toronto Nov. 15-16.
