EXTRAVAGANT LOVE: The Gospel Mysticism of Ruth Burrows
July 31, 2023 @ 5:00 pm - August 3, 2023 @ 10:00 am
This retreat will consider the spiritual writings of English Carmelite nun Ruth Burrows. We will reflect on the source of her spiritual insights, the foundations of her mystical doctrine, and what it means for her to be drawn into and to become the “Yes” of Jesus Crucified, and the transformation that ensues. The retreat will include time for pondering key texts from a wide variety of her published works, including Before the Living God, To Believe in Jesus, and Guidelines for Mystical Prayer.
