The Heart of Religion

Fr. Alberto Luna, former Roman Catholic archbishop of Cuenca, Ecuador, calls for a sincere turning toward the "true and authentic" God, who resides deep in the human heart.
Fr. Alberto says that that sacred depth is available to everyone; it is the place where all religions meet, and it provides the strength needed to walk the path of relationship and to put "we" above "you" and "I."

Alberto Luna served as Archbishop of Cuenca from 1981 - 2000 during which time he attracted controversy among the church establishment and ruling class for both his ideas and his work with the poor and underprivileged. His personal journey into the mystical dimension of religious life has inspired many around him to embrace a more inclusive view of their faith. He continues to lead mass daily at the Catedral de la Inmaculada in Cuenca, Ecuador.
