Deacon Robert Pallotti's Corner
Spiritual Food For Thought
Deacon Robert Pallotti, D.Min.
I thank you for taking the time to read the
articles I have included on this site.
Before I address the rationale for my articles, I
would like to introduce myself.
I am a Roman Catholic Deacon who has been a
professional educator and parish minister.
I am married to a wonderful wife named, Kit, and I
have three great children named Katie, Kevin and Erin.
I am currently serving as the Director of the Office
of the Diaconate for the Archdiocese of Hartford.
I teach in the Deacon Formation Program Catholic
Morality, Ethics, Homiletics, and a practical ministry course that includes how
to minister to those who have had NDEs, and their families.
The purpose of my articles is to engage professional
ministers and theologians in a thoughtful discussion concerning the challenges
and the opportunities that NDEs pose to organized religions. Also, I desire that
peoples of the world religious traditions have a place to dialogue about the NDE
experience and other Spiritually Transformative Experiences (STE) as they relate
to the religious doctrine of the world religious traditions.
I believe that such a discussion can be helpful in
reinforcing the fundamental truth of all the great traditions of the spiritual
nature of humanity and all reality.
The articles should promote a
discussion with the scientific community and the implications of NDE for the
discussion concerning the
hard problem of consciousness.
Quantum physics has revealed the fundamental role
of human consciousness in our world that directs us to discuss how NDEs and
modern science can dialogue, directing our gaze toward the priority of spirit or
mind in the universe.
Ultimately, the articles are dedicated to promoting a deeper dialogue to understand the true essence of organized religion and the parallels with the NDE. In a world threatened by nuclear weapons, genocide, terrorism and religious hatred, such a dialogue is essential for the promotion of dignity of every human person and justice and peace among peoples and nations.
