I have never in my life shed tears for someone who has died that I didn't know personally, however when I hear of Fr. Thomas Keating's death, I did so. I never had the opportunity to meet him, however through his books and videos, I seem to have developed a real relationship with him. It is truly amazing how many lives he has touched in such a deep way. May God grant him that final letting go. I pray for peace for all who will miss him, as I know I will.
