John Main

A Biography

Paul Harris

John Main OSB (1926-1982) is recognized as one of the major spiritual  teachers of the twentieth century.  His teaching on contemplation prayer has transformed many lives worldwide and his influence continues to grow.

John Main taught that to be with God does not require words, thoughts or images, but the silent consciousness of a Presence.  He reminds us that the spiritual pilgrimage invites us to have the courage to become more and more silent.  the journey starts when we accept the discipline of silence, stillness and simplicity.

This booklet tells the story of John Main through letters, anecdotes, and reminiscences by family, friends and colleagues.  A Collection of photographs adds a personal touch to this story.  The booklet gives a new dimension to our understanding of the man, the monk, and his teaching.  Fr. Laurence Freeman, Fr. John's spiritual successor, says: "It is important to see how John Main's pilgrimage and mission were fully inserted into his humanity.  It is the authenticity of his life that in the final analysis teaches us."
