Midday Retreat with the Mystics: William of St. Thierry
January 21 @ 12:00 pm - 3:00 pm EST
Join every 3rd Saturday of the month for Midday Retreats with the Mystics, focusing this month on William of St. Thierry (1085-1148). William was the best friend of St. Bernard and is the most quoted author in Statutes of the Carthusian Order. He wrote much on contemplation and love and will help you do what he so aspired to: “May I love Him whom to love is to live indeed.” Fr. Ignatius John Schweitzer, OP will give a conference talk on William, followed by Exposition of the Blessed Sacrament and guided meditations from his writings. A small social gathering will follow upstairs at 3 p.m., along with the opportunity to be anointed with St. Elisabeth of the Trinity oil. No RSVP required.
