Course

Interiority and Life of Prayer

Description

This course will offer students an opportunity, first, to explore their own interiority, thanks to the self-knowledge provided by the Canadian Jesuit Bernard Lonergan; and second, to identify more clearly their difficulties in prayer, their own way of praying, and possibly to modify it. Various views on prayer will be examined, mainly in the Bible, among a few ancient and medieval authors, in St. Thomas Aquinas, and among modern prayerful people. Spiritual and psychological aspects of maturing in prayer will also be discussed.
