Sophia/Wisdom in the Writings of John of the Cross  

Monday, July 24 - Friday, July 28, 2017


Retreat Description: This retreat will provide an opportunity to appreciate the Wisdom Christology that John of the Cross employs in all of his writings. Special attention will be paid to John's process of spiritual development, especially in the Spiritual Canticle, and the key role that Sophia plays for him. Retreatants will have an opportunity to pray with Scriptural texts from the Wisdom Literature and the New Testament that John employs frequently in his spiritual writings.

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 of Theology in Collegeville, MN and holds degrees in Christian Spirituality from Creighton in Omaha and in Pastoral Leadership from Chaminade in Honolulu.
