A Celebration of Teresa of Avila's 500th Birthday!
Saturday October 17, 2015
9:30a.m. - Noon
Led by Fr. Francis Dorff, O. Praem.
|If there ever was a subtitle to Saint Teresa’s life, it would have to be
“becoming one with God.” Basically, that is what her whole life and
all of her spiritual teaching is about. That is why she was suspected
of being a heretic in her day. And that is why she was subsequently
recognized by the Catholic Church to be a saint, a prophetic reformer,
a mystic, an extraordinary spiritual guide, a gifted theologian, and a very
holy Christian woman. In the first half of this morning, we will let
Saint Teresa show us the way through the magnificent Interior Castle
in which our own soul lives and in which we become fully one with God.
This morning will combine brief presentations with time for reflection,
comments, questions and discussion.
