Retreat Guide: Kathy Duffy, SSJ. Today when so much of the evolutionary process is being explained from a materialist view, one of the most challenging questions for believers is how to envision the role of the Divine in the ongoing creation. Contemporary mystics have described powerful images that address this dilemma. Pierre Teilhard de Chardin speaks eloquently of the Cosmic Christ hinted at in Paul’s epistle to the Ephesians. (1:9-10 and 4:9-10) Thomas Merton sings the praises of Divine Wisdom in his poem entitled, “Hagai Sophia.” Others see the Divine as fountain fullness and the World as a revelation of the Divine. During this retreat, Kathy will invite all to explore these images, consider their relevance as we address the concerns of today’s world and contemplate the presence of Divine Love at the heart of our expanding cosmos.
Cost: $510 (Religious), $475 (CSJ)
