Mysticism is the best kept secret within our spiritual and ecclesial circles. But, alongside Scripture, it is a very rich source of insight and revelation from which to draw guidance for our journey. This retreat will draw on the lives and insights of a number of classical and contemporary mystics, particularly Therese of Lisieux. How might we live a mystically-driven life?
Session 1: What is Mysticism? What is a Mystically-driven life?
Session 2: The Mystical Challenge of Therese of Lisieux
Session 3: Our “Mystical” Union inside the Body of Christ
