A while ago, I found myself spending a weekend with John Dear.  Honestly, he blew my mind with his passion and dedication towards nonviolence and peace.

He specifically invited me to cultivate an interior of non violence, something I had  never even considered.

I never dreamed a Jesuit Priest would be able to capture my attention in such a profound way and I certainly never dreamed I’d be understanding Jesus in this way, but John Dear has a way of captivating and opening people’s minds to the more that I believe we’re all seeking in one form or another.

Watch him here, it’s only 8 minutes, worth every second.
