TRANSFORMATION FOR A NEW CREATION
Monday, July 18– Friday, July 22, 2022
This retreat will consider the 5 "circles of mysticism" through which Teilhard de Chardin, French Jesuit and scientist, passed during his years as a stretcher bearer on the French-German front during the First World War. We will consider a few mystical experiences that he encountered during this fruitful period of his life. Then we will pay careful attention to how this spiritual journey later became evident in his classic work The Divine Milieu. We will culminate with a choral reading of Teilhard's Mass on the World.
Fr. Stephen Coffey, a Massachusetts native, is a monk of the Camaldolese Congregation of the Order of St. Benedict and lives at the Monastery of the Risen Christ in San Luis Obispo, where he is director of oblates. He is a retreat director, spiritual director, and is involved in other formation ministries at the Hermitage in Big Sur and at San Lorenzo Seminary in Santa Ynez. He is a graduate of St. John's School Theology in Collegeville, MN and holds degrees in Christian Spirituality from Creighton in Omaha and in Pastoral Leadership from Chaminade in Honolulu.
