I am so blessed having been introduced to Centering Prayer 18 years ago in Beaverton, Oregon. Fr. Keating, centering prayer has transformed my life, and I thank you and the other monks who were inspired by the Holy Spirit to share this prayer with us. The first time I met you in a small group and centered with you felt like I was close to God. Every time I wrote a note to you over the years to express my gratitude for you I was impressed that you sent back a note back to me of your own gratitude. Even when you were in hospice you had Bonnie send an email to me. May you rest in PEACE and LOVE.
