Presenter: Sister Kathleen Duffy, SSJ May 19 – 24, 2019 7:00 PM Sunday to 10:00 AM Friday
While on retreat in 1919, Teilhard experienced a transfiguration-like experience that he shares with us in his essay, “The Spiritual Power of Matter.” During this transformative event, Teilhard is moved to commit himself to a life of struggle in every aspect of his life without yet knowing what these struggles might be. In this retreat, we will consider the many ways Teilhard is confronted with struggle—as a scientist, believer, lover, Jesuit, mystic, and as a faithful member of the Church. Together we will explore some of the more significant examples, notice Teilhard’s responses, and share our experiences so that we can learn better ways of dealing with the struggles that we face in our lives and in our world today.
