Entering the Mystery of Contemplation with St Teresa of Avila & St John of the Cross - Guided Retreat


Michelle Vass & Michael Fallon msc

Guided Retreat

22-28 November 2019

Prayer Weekend
22-24 November 2019

This retreat is an invitation to Mystery, where something of the divine is revealed. Prayer engages the heart and draws a person into this divine communion. The art of  contemplative prayer is a gift of God’s grace that transforms our souls so that, like Saint Paul, we will be able to say: ‘I live, no longer I, but Christ lives in me’ (Gal 2:20). Our mind is being transformed into the mind of Christ. Our heart is becoming his heart. It is his communion of love which we are being invited to experience.

To help us on our way, this retreat will focus on the writings and teachings of two great Carmelite Doctors of the Church, St Teresa of Avila and St John of the Cross. Both saints had a profound love for Jesus and an ability to share this love with their readers in wise advice on the prayer and the spiritual life.

As we learn from them, we will be better able to nurture and sustain a contemplative way of living today. They remind us that we are invited to live the divine life, and to love others so that their joy too may be complete.
