An Interview with Cynthia Bourgeault
On this episode of The Richard Brendan Show … Bringing Love to Life, modern day mystic and Episcopal priest Cynthia Bourgeault, shares her story of love that transcends time and space.
In her powerful book, Love is Stronger than Death: The Mystical Union of Two Souls, she writes about her intense relationship with Brother Raphael Robin, a 70 year old Trappist monk and hermit (20 years older than her).
Bourgeault and Robin believed that a relationship can continue beyond this life, and Cynthia describes her search for that connection before and after Robin’s death. Isabel Allende said, “This is a most unconventional love story: two aging individuals in search of God meet and immediately recognize ‘the beloved’ in the other. Together they attain what they could not do alone.”
