The paper focuses on defining and consciously re-membering spirituality as fundamental to the practice and praxis of multicultural research and teaching. In what I describe as the blessings of spirituality, I examine the ways that examining spirituality in international/global contexts can help us to theorize “in the flesh” (Hurtado, 2003), engaging research that seeks to address social justice in its practice and outcomes. Thus, the blessings of spirituality are also the basis for political commitments to informed moral action and principled political praxis in our lives and work as researcher-teachers.
