BECOMING THE PRAISE OF HIS GLORY: The Spirituality of St. Elizabeth of the Trinity
Monday, September 23 - Friday, September 29, 2019
This retreat will focus on the spiritual writings of Elizabeth of the Trinity, early-20th century French Carmelite nun recently canonized by Pope Francis. Retreatants will learn the major themes of her spiritual teaching through conferences and reflection on significant texts she composed during her 5 years as a Carmelite, prior to her death in 1906 at age 26. Her spirituality is rooted in the hymn that begins the Letter to the Ephesians, from which she drew her understanding of her vocation "to become the praise of His glory."
