“They Hummed of Mystery: A Contemplative Ecology.”
November 21, 2022 @ 9:00 am – 3:00 pm
A day retreat open to men and women facilitated by Fr. John McCarthy, SJ
Pope Francis’ encyclical Laudato Si’ (2015), uses the wisdom language of the Christian Trinity to attempt a “re-enchantment” of the natural world. The doctrine of the Trinity suggests a provocative language that invites one to engage the profound mystery and depth of creation. The Trinitarian mystery can instill a spirit of awe, wonder, contemplation, reverence and praise before the word and the beauty of God in all creation. We will explore this deep well of meaning and mystery that we call creation or nature. From this well may flow a contemplative ecology that grounds a deep-rooted care for our common home and a call to rebuild, restore, and renew together so that all things may be made new.
