Spiritually-Oriented Podcasts — Audio from Public Lectures


These are audios of classes I gave at the Word and Life Program in Santa Barbara.

We explore the history and values of traditional Catholic teachings and then upgrade our appreciation of them by looking at new trends in theology and especially in Vatican II. We move from faith to faith with great respect for the past we remember and with joyous expectancy for the future we are welcoming in.



MAY 2018: A WORD & LIFE Three-part Lecture and Discussion Series on
Everything Ablaze
Meditating on the Mystical Vision of Teilhard de Chardin
Paulist Press  —  2017

Contemporary interest in Teilhard’s work manifests the evolutionary mysticism he taught and forecast, and which we can apply to our daily life. This is conscious evolution, a presence in the world as members of Christ’s body. Indeed, we are alive today to co-create—through Him, with Him, in Him, and as Him—the future Christ came to proclaim.
A meditative focus on Teilhard’s words opens us to the mysterious forces in the universe that continually reveal God’s face. Our calling is to join into the momentum of our evolving universe so we can engage with the world. We do this in all we are, and find it everywhere we are. Delightedly, we also discover who we are because a calling always reveals our surprising potential.
“Teilhard de Chardin believed that a vibrant Christian life can set the world on fire. In Everything Ablaze, Dave Richo describes Teilhard’s spirituality in clear and distinct prose, inviting the reader into a new understanding of faith and evolution. Richo highlights the world of Teilhard’s expansive ideas on the dynamism of spirituality, illuminating the life of the spirit as an evolution in love. For those interested in the thought of Teilhard de Chardin, Everything Ablaze provides a wonderful introduction.”
