Day of Recollection: St. Teresa and the Gift of Friendship
June 16, 2018 @ 8:00 am - 3:00 pm EDT| $65
Presented by Fr. Stephen Watson, OCD
St. Teresa’s definition of mental prayer as anÂ “affair of friendship (tratar de amistad),Â being alone often with one whom we knowÂ loves us,” is fairly well known. What is lessÂ well known is her tremendous capacity forÂ human friendship and the extent of herÂ circle of friends.
During this day of recollection I will presentÂ St. Teresa’s teaching that friendship is rootedÂ in Christ and allows for an astonishingÂ expression of all that is truly human. I willÂ introduce you to some of her closest friends – in particular, Fr. Jerome Gracian,Â her closest collaborator.
Cost per participant $65 includes breakfast and lunch.
