SOPHIA/WISDOM IN THE WRITINGS OF JOHN OF THE CROSS
Monday, August 26 - Friday, August 30, 2019
This retreat will provide an opportunity to appreciate the Wisdom Christology that John of the Cross employs in all of his writings. Special attention will be paid to John's process of spiritual development, especially in the Spiritual Canticle, and the key role that Sophia plays for him. Retreatants will have an opportunity to pray with Scriptural texts from the Wisdom Literature and the New Testament that John employs frequently in his spiritual writings.
