You have made us for yourself, Almighty God, and our hearts are restless until they rest in you,” Augustine wrote. Deep in Christian tradition rests the conviction that we are created with a holy thirst for God. In this class we will continue to explore one of the great Christian spiritualities of desire, the spirituality of Ignatius of Loyola. Too often reduced to his legacy of founding the Society of Jesus, Ignatius shaped and shared the foundations of his spirituality as a layman. We will discuss how God has called and is calling us in our own desires. The music of rock musician Melissa Etheridge will provide a soundtrack for our pilgrimage into the spiritualities of desire. This series continues from last fall’s lecture on Julian of Norwich, but you can join us for this session whether or not you attended the first.
