Spirituality for Mission - Connecting in an Era of Disconnection

Thursday, April 16, 5:30-7:00 p.m.

Corcoran Commons, Heights Room, Chestnut Hill Campus

Maryanne Confoy RSC, professor of spirituality and pastoral theology, Jesuit College of Spirituality, University of Divinity (Melbourne) Australia

This lecture proposes a contemporary personal, communal and ecclesial Christian spirituality directed towards mission. In developing the Ignatian understanding of “finding God in all things”, it also explores ways in which the contemporary seeker or searcher experiences “being found” through darkness. In the present era of relational and societal disconnectedness, the lecture draws on the writings of Roger Haight, particularly in regard to the importance of the imagination and the discovery of resurrection faith-hope in the possible future.
