He is a Franciscan priest of the New Mexico Province and founder of the Center for Action and Contemplation (CAC) in Albuquerque, New Mexico. Fr.

Radical Grace - a way of life Apr 23, 2001
Radical Grace is the name of the newspaper published by the Center for Action and Contemplation, an institute established by Rohr in New Mexico. The essays in this collection are taken from that newspaper and are of varying interest. Rohr's contributions in general stand head and shoulders above the rest of the offerings in the book although there are a couple of moments of inspiration from the laity.
