LJ Milone

L.J. Milone has been serving at the Cathedral of St. Matthew the Apostle in Washington, D.C. for seventeen years. Following studies at Siena College in upstate New York, L.J. volunteered with the Franciscan friars in Wilmington, DE and Philadelphia, PA serving the poor: the incarcerated, the homeless, and the sick.

L.J. earned a Master’s Degree in Pastoral Studies from the Washington Theological Union where he studied with teacher and voluminous writer, Ilia Delio. Currently, L.J. is studying to complete a doctorate in preaching from Aquinas Institute of Theology.

He is a spiritual teacher, a retreat leader, a spiritual director, and avid student of the mystics such as Meister Eckhart, Francis of Assisi, Julian of Norwich, The Cloud of Unknowing, John of the Cross, Teresa of Avila, and Therese of Lisieux. He wrote a book on Meister Eckhart: "Nothing but God: The Everyday Mysticism of Meister Eckhart". For over twenty years, L.J. has practiced silent meditation and has attempted to live in the Holy Mystery of God’s Presence amid daily life with a large family.
