Bishop Gregory Lenten Introduction to Carmelite Spirituality.
5 Tuesdays – 3 Saints.
Using the contemplative tradition of the Carmelite Order we will look at the Lenten themes of “Prayer”, “Penance”, “Almsgiving”, “Mercy” and “Forgiveness” to uncover the deeper spiritual meaning of this Holy Season. St Teresa of Avila, St John of the Cross and St Therese of Lisieux have a profound understanding of sacred scripture, human nature and the love of God. We will bring their wisdom to the readings of Lent and to our own experience of life.
Tuesday 7 March – St Teresa of Avila and Prayer.
Tuesday 14 March – St Teresa of Avila on Penance and Self-Knowledge.
Tuesday 21 March – St John of the Cross on Almsgiving and Love.
Tuesday 28 March – St John of the Cross on Beauty and the Word of God.
Tuesday 4 April – St Therese of Lisieux on Forgiveness and the Mercy of God.
The talks will be held from now in St Mary's Chapel from 6pm to 7.30pm.
Everyone is welcome to attend.
