The Pursuit of Justice and Other Needed Virtues

Both St. Thomas Aquinas and St. Catherine of Siena wrote extensively on virtues. Pope Francis continues to emphasize the need of virtue in our world today in his letter, Rejoice and Be Glad. Together we will explore their insights and discover how we can internalize these virtues in our Christian life journey.

In three sessions, one Friday evening and two on Saturday we listen to their counsel and ponder their words. Saturday’s program includes time for prayerful reflective silence and sharing in small groups as we struggle to discern our role as Christian people in the world today with its risks, challenges, and opportunities.

 

A Summer Retreat, The Pursuit of Justice and Other Needed Virtues, will be held in the chapel at the Brothers Hospitallers of St. John of God at 901 Br. Mathias Pl NW near Old Town.

Admission this year is complimentary, but space is limited so registration is needed. The cost for lunch on Saturday is $15.  For more information please go to DEIabq.org, email Contact@DEIabq.org, or call 505.831.8212.
