A Healthy Asceticism – Christine Valters Paintner

February 28, 2018

“A healthy asceticism has always been a call to conversion and about removing what gets in the way of awareness of God’s movements in our lives.  Recovering our relationship with the earth means embracing both the gifts of radical simplicity and celebrating the wisdom of our bodies together in one practice as an earth-sensuous asceticism.  We live in a rampantly consumer culture, so this journey requires that we examine our patterns closely.”
