BENEDICTINE SPIRITUALITY: St. Benedict’s Teaching on Humility 2022

July 6 @ 5:30 pm - July 10 @ 10:00 am

This retreat is for oblates and those interested in Benedictine monastic spirituality. This year’s focus will be on the virtue and the practice of humility in one’s daily life, utilizing Chapter 7 and other texts of the Holy rule and the monastic tradition. Although Benedict’s words and emphases may not strike many as relevant or in keeping with contemporary psychological trends, his teaching provides us with a perennial wisdom. Michael Casey remarks, “true humility is a quality that enhances humanity”; and “Let his Rule become for us a doorway to a tradition of life and thought that continues to have much to contribute to the present and future of the Church.”
