Karl Rahner, SJ, one of the greatest theologians of the 20th century, claimed that “the Christian of the future will either be a mystic or will cease to be anything at all.” What is mysticism and how does one become a mystic? In this retreat, we will look to the lives and writings of some of the great mystics in our tradition to see what wisdom they might offer us on our faith journey into the future. These include, among others, Teresa of Ávila, Thérèse of Lisieux, Francis of Assisi, Francis de Sales and Karl Rahner.
