September 17 – Midday Retreat with the Mystics: St. Thomas Aquinas

On Saturday, September 17, Noon to 3pm, in St. Catherine of Siena’s Church , we will continue our Midday Retreat with the Mystics, focusing on the spiritual dimensions of the teachings of the Angelic Doctor, St. Thomas Aquinas.

Aquinas’ writings reveal a man who found God in all things, lived a God-centered life, experienced Triune Love, and was animated by the gifts of the Holy Spirit. Fr. Ignatius John Schweitzer, OP will give a conference talk on St. Thomas, followed by Exposition of the Blessed Sacrament and guided meditations from his writings and Eucharistic hymns, along with an opportunity to be anointed with St. Elizabeth of the Trinity oil.  Aquinas will help our hearts seek what he did: “Nothing but you, Lord!”
