About Father Paul Murray

Who is Father Paul Murray? A Dominican friar, a poet, a professor, and an Irish raconteur extraordinaire.

He is here in the United States from Rome for a number of his talks to be filmed by the Word on Fire Institute. Bishop Barron has called him "one of today's great Catholic poets and spiritual writers". In 2008 Father Murray gave an Oxford talk together with the Dalai Lama. In November 2010 he gave an hour-long televised talk at the British House of Lords on Christian contemplation.

No wonder Mother Teresa asked him to speak to her nuns!

Father Murray’s second book poetry won the prestigious Poetry Irish Choice award. He teaches on the literature of the Western mystical tradition at the renowned Angelicum University in Rome.

His works on poetry, literature, and seeking (and finding) God include:

Scars: Essays, Poems and Meditations on Affliction, T.S. Eliot and Mysticism: The Secret History of Four Quartets, I Loved Jesus in the Night: Teresa of Calcutta, Aquinas at Prayer: The Bible, Mysticism and Poetry.

His latest book is God’s Spies: Michelangelo, Shakespeare and Other Poets of Vision.
