Jonathan Murro

 

Jonathan Murro, Co-Founder of the Ann Ree Colton Foundation of Niscience, was born in Brooklyn, New York, on October 31, 1927.  Following a prayer to serve God, Jonathan met his future teacher and wife, Ann Ree Colton, in 1951.  Recognizing the profound value and rarity of her knowledge and communion with God, he committed himself to the preservation and transcription of her lectures, inspirations, and spiritual receivings. Author and co-author of nine books and countless lectures on spiritual subjects, Jonathan became a qualified spiritual teacher in his own right. After Ann Ree's passing in 1984, Jonathan served as the Administrator of the Ann Ree Colton Foundation for seven years, until his death on November 9, 1991.

 

 

Jonathan Murro has bequeathed to coming generations the legacy of his own initiatory path to God-Realization; his enlightened appreciation of God’s Principles, Ethics, Commandments, and Virtues; as well as his understanding of the classic challenges encountered on the path to spiritual enlightenment.  Jonathan Murro brings to the student of the higher life the powerful testimony of his own witnessing and experience as a modern-day Apostle of the Lord Jesus.

"Tree of Knowledge" Mosaic by Jonathan Murro

There is something about the Name of Jesus.

There is something about the way it heals

and soothes, comforts and quickens my soul.

There is something about the Name of Jesus;

the way it builds a holy wall

of protection around me;

the way it goes before me as a

great light, showing

the Path to the Father's Kingdom.

There is something about the Name of Jesus.

His Name enfolds and enlightens me,

caresses and seals me with Truths Divine.

There is something about the Name of Jesus.

His Name takes my prayers

and sanctifies them.

His Name takes my grace-gifts

and glorifies the Father's Love through them.

There is something about the Name of Jesus

that is always New for me to discover.

His Name is Known in all Heavens.

His Name is part of God's Eternal Plan.

There is something about the Name of Jesus

that will unlock every door,

that will solve every mystery,

that will heal every woe.

There is something about the Name of Jesus

that enables man to Know,

to Grow,

and to follow his Soul's Star

to perfect Love and Godly understanding.

There is something about the Name of Jesus

that I will always love and trust;

an indefinable peace comes from His Name.

I hear the Name of Jesus

as a Great Bell sounding forevermore:

"Be free in My Name.

"Be free through My Name.

"My Name is the Door to every Freedom.

"My Name is the key to every Treasure.

"Call on My Name.

"Do all in my Name.

"And my Spirit, which is in My Name,

shall be with thee always."
