Moment of Christ


Moment of Christ is the third of eight sets of John Main’s collected talks. These talks were given at his monastery in Montreal to groups who came on weekday evenings to listen to and meditate with him. The talks were meant to persuade ordinary people, many of whom came straight from work, of the importance of meditating and the simplicity of the Christian tradition and practice of it.
