From the Desert Fathers to Julian of Norwich to Thomas Merton, Christian history is filled with stories of men and women who experienced a profound sense of God’s presence in their lives. Can the teachings of the mystics still speak to us today? The mystics themselves would say, “Yes.” Furthermore, their message is not just for priests, monks or nuns, but is indeed meant for the entire people of God. With this in mind, during this weekend we will look at several ways that the wisdom of the Christian mystics can provide insight and inspiration for our age, including the universal call to holiness, St. Paul’s directive to “pray without ceasing,” and the promise from the Psalms to, “Be still and know that I am God.”
Your retreat leaders are Brother Elias, OCSO and Carl McColman.
