The Queretaro publishing house, Gris Tormenta, presents a beautiful collection of texts in which different authors from different countries reflect on something that is necessary to us in order to be fully human: silence, something that is becoming ever rarer in our world. The writer, theologian, priest, practitioner of Zen meditation, and founder of the Amigos del Desierto association, Pablo d’Ors (Spain), and the publisher and writer Mónica Nepote (Mexico), talk to the book’s editor, José Manuel Velasco.
The writer, priest and founder of the Amigos del Desierto association, Pablo d’Ors is the author of the unexpected publishing success Biografía del silencio (2012), an essay about introspection, meditation and spiritual contemplation. The author now presents Biografía de la luz (2021), a look at the life of Christ, the Gospel view of this extraordinary figure and how we can incorporate this into our everyday lives. He will be conversation with Juan Carlos Moreno Romo.
