The Indian Jesuit Anthony DeMello died in 1987 but his spiritual writings still have wide appeal. In this discussion, Thomas G. Casey, S.J., a professor at the Gregorian University in Rome, and Margaret Brennan Hassett, one of his students, discuss their love for the work of "Tony" DeMello, and explain his teachings. Among DeMello's insights: that a deeper awareness of one's breathing can help facilitate prayer. Casey and Hassett's new book, From Fear to Serenity with Anthony DeMello, S.J., is published by Paulist Press.
