2022 Daily Meditations: Nothing Stands Alone

In 2022, join Fr. Richard Rohr on a journey of God as Relationship—with ourselves, each other, and the earth. This year in the Daily Meditations, Fr. Richard explores how all relationships invite us to experience God’s presence more fully with the theme of Nothing Stands Alone.

– Father RICHARD ROHR
