December 18 – Saturday Midday Retreat with the Mystics: St. Bernard of Clairvaux

On Saturday, December 18, Noon to 3 PM, in St. Catherine of Siena Church, we will continue our Midday Retreat with the Mystics (every 3rd Saturday of the month), this day focusing on St. Bernard of Clairvaux. St. Bernard (1090-1153) is a key figure in the unfolding of Christian spirituality, leaving his mark on the whole rest of our tradition. Fr. Ignatius John Schweitzer, O.P. will give a conference talk on St. Bernard, followed by Exposition of the Blessed Sacrament and guided meditations from his writings. Come to hear how, according to St. Bernard, we can all “dare to aspire to mystical marriage with the Word” (Serm. 83), and to enter more deeply into the love of God.
