Rediscovering The Universal Christ

An audio interview with Fr. Richard Rohr

In this interview Brie Stoner engages in conversation with Fr. Richard Rohr, covering a number of topics in a forthcoming book he’s in the process of writing. Here they explore a more “universal” understanding of Christ—Christ as an ongoing manifestation from the very beginning of existence, manifesting through women and men and all living creatures, not confined to any particular faith tradition, and an animating force that continues to manifest in the evolutionary process itself.

Christ is the first idea in the mind of God. Jesus appeared 2000 years ago to make that universal manifestation personal and concrete and accessible.

Fr. Richard considers how a personal encounter through Jesus is balanced with a more universal principle of Christ—where the Christ is not an exclusive savoir confined to the Christian faith, rather

… the Christ is a message for all of creation that is in competition with no one, but a gift for clarification of all of our religions, including Christianity itself. I think that’s what a rediscovery of the Christ offers…

As they wrap us Fr. Richard shares his renewed appreciation for the value for personal prayer.

Ilia...imagine me sitting in a little adobe house here in a Zapotec pueblo where we have been 18 yrs as Lay missioners. I am listening to everything I can find on YouTube as you explain the new paradigm for this axial moment in our ongoing evolution. I listen many times because it is a new language and I am 81. I just want to give you a big hug because you put it all together and help me also to understand better Teilhard whom I love and hope I didnt misspell his name. I pray for you and all this hope in the midst of chaos which will move us on. Thank you
