We have been studying books on the spirituality of John of the Cross. In honor of the 500th birthday of John of the Cross’ close companion and dear friend, Teresa of Avila, the group voted to study an introduction to her most well-known work: The Interior Castle in May and June of 2015. The Wednesday study group will complete this study and break for the summer. However, the anniversary year will go on until 2016. Should any other group wish to form for a two month weekly study on another day of the week, contact Sister Joyce at 708-599-2954. The book, Love Beckons will be used can be found at the Carmelite Gift and Book store in Darien.
In the Fall of 2015 we will begin a study of “The Collected Works of John of the Cross.” The first of his major works studied will be “The Spiritual Canticle of St. John of the Cross. In the Fall of 2015 this group will resume from 3:30-4:40 p.m. Look for “Spiritual Canticle of St. John of the Cross” in the bulletin.
