The Living Flame of Love: Encountering the Mystery

21st December 2021

2:45pm-4:25pm via Zoom


“The endurance of darkness is the preparation for great light.”

St John of the Cross

St John of the Cross’s book, The Living Flame of Love, is both a hymn of praise to the Blessed Trinity, and a call to encounter God in life and prayer. The first session of the presentation will look at what the Flame tells us about God and humanity; the second will consider the implications of this, in John’s view, for a life of prayer.
