The “Finding Beauty in All Things: Walking the Spiritual Path” speaker series featuring Mary Beth Ingham, C.S.J., is a perfect complement to the spiritual journey through Lent to Easter. Each of the lunchtime sessions will focus on a new theme:
March 4 – “Consider the Goodness of God;”
March 25 – “Listen to Your Life;”
April 15 – “Grace in Return for Grace.”
According to Ingham, the recognition of beauty as key to a spiritual path is central to the Sisters of St. Joseph of Orange/Ignatian vision of God’s great love. These lectures will explore the power of beauty around us and in our lives as a transformative pathway to God. Beginning with divine abundant love in creation and human lives, we trace out the power of the particular as it reveals opportunities for conversion. The final Eastertime session celebrates the transformative power of divine love and mercy alive in our world.
The lectures will take place in The Hill, Malone 460, at 11:30 a.m. – 1 p.m.
Please save these dates on your calendar. RSVP invitations will be sent out soon. Lunch will be provided at each of the sessions.
