Asceticism – Christine Valters Paintner

October 10, 2019

“Asceticism does not ring well in modern ears . . . Yet there is still great wisdom to be discovered in the conscious choice to live with less. There is a profound gift in the invitation to ask ourselves what the things that distract us from God are.”

 Christine Valters Paintner, PhD Water, Wind, Earth, & Fire: The Practice of Praying with the Elements
