2013 Summer Spiritual Theology Series

The Mystery of Faith in the Wisdom of the Saints

Conferences by Dr. Anthony Lilles

Wednesdays from 7:00pm to 9:00pm in the Parish Center

Free to the Public


The Year of Faith invites us to examine some of the inexhaustible riches of Christ in our tradition so that we can better participate in the new work of evangelization the exigencies of our time and our society demand. Among these treasures we find the beautiful awareness that the saints enjoy of the presence of the Risen Lord at work in the world. This mystical wisdom, a wisdom that is given through contemplation, is the key to the renewal of the Church and the new evangelization for us today just as it was for them in their day. We will see that by allowing us to glimpse the glory they know, the great saints and mystics propose powerful reasons to embrace the discipline of the Christian life and to renew our own dedication to daily prayer. Each evening will feature two forty five minute lectures on the spiritual theology of a different saint followed by fifteen minutes of disccusion. The saints to be explored are as follows:


July 3: Saint Bernard of Clairvaux

July 10: Saint Hildegard of Bingen

July 17: Saint Catherine of Siena


July 24: Saint John of Avila

July 31: Saint Teresa of Avila


Aug. 7: Saint John of the Cross


Aug. 14: Saint Therese of Lisieux


Aug. 21: Saint Faustina Kowalska


Aug. 28: Blessed John Paul II
