It is essential now to remember that there has never been a renewal of the Church in history without a corresponding renewal of contemplative prayer and religious life. I utterly affirm the work of the Center for Spiritual Imagination. They have a key role to play in the process of supporting new religious communities and movements at this crucial time of major cultural change.”
