Theologian, priest, and author of dozens of books, Rev. Dr. Matthew Fox, penned this insightful public letter to Rush Limbaugh upon Limbaugh's announcement that he has terminal lung cancer.

I've attended Fox's profound presentations as well as his heart-centered and innovative "Cosmic Mass," a spiritual rave that replaces pews with a dance floor.

Thomas Berry, author of The Great Work, The Dream of the Earth and The Universe Story, notes "Matthew Fox might well be the most creative, the most comprehensive, surely the most challenging religious-spiritual teacher in America . He has the scholarship, the imagination, the courage, the writing skill to fulfill this role at a time when the more official Christian theological traditions are having difficulty in establishing any vital contact with either the spiritual possibilities of the present or with their own most creative spiritual traditions of the past." He has, it seems, created a new mythic context for leading us out of our contemporary religious and spiritual confusion into a new clarity of mind and peace of soul, by affirming rather than abandoning any of our traditional beliefs."

Benedictine monk, yogi and author, Fr. Bede Griffiths, OSB, said,"(Matthew Fox's) creation spirituality is the spirituality of the future and his Theology of the Cosmic Christ is the theology of the future." (Excerpt from: audio tape, "Spirituality for a New Era)

And the news comes out that you are facing a showdown with cancer.
