Midday Retreat with the Mystics
October 16, 2021 @ 12:00 pm - 3:00 pm EDT
An event every month that begins at 12:00 pm on day Third of the month, repeating indefinitely
So many in our busy and hectic world today feel the need for prayerful silence and interior recollection. But it’s hard to get away to a monastery! So we’ll be offering an oasis of contemplation within New York City, learning from the great Saints and mystics of the Church and through their guidance entering into prayer. The third Saturday of every month will showcase the spiritual teaching of one particular Saint or mystic. We will sit at their feet and allow them to help draw us into the riches of the spiritual life and into the depths of God. Fr. Ignatius John Schweitzer, O.P. will give a talk on the spiritual life based on the doctrine of the mystic of the month. Then we will have Eucharistic Exposition with periods of silence, along with some guided meditations based on the holy person we are highlighting that day.
