How are modern-day Catholics to perceive or practice mysticism in the 21st century?
Now you can explore the reality of mysticism with renowned Ignatian spirituality expert Fr. Paul Coutinho. Mysticism within the Catholic faith has a long and honored history, and now, with this 12-lecture series, you can discover the meaning and spiritual significance of practicing mysticism as developed by St. Ignatius.
The mysticism of St. Ignatius is a universal mysticism lived out in everyday life. To follow this mystical path one does not have to run away to a lonely place or engage in severe asceticism. Rather the Ignatian mystical pathway shows us how to live our day-to-day lives in all its fullness: We savor our desserts, enjoy our vacations, grow in our loving relationships, and are fully present to the painful situations of our lives.
Through this revealing new course, you will learn that the key to Ignatian mysticism is not to find God in all things but to allow God to find us in all things, not just to love God but to receive God's love. Discover for yourself how a personal relationship and mystical union with God is life changing.
