HILDEGARD OF BINGEN: Prophet of the Cosmic Christ
Monday, August 24 - Friday, August 28, 2020
This retreat will focus on the spirituality of St. Hildegard, 12th century Benedictine abbess who was named Doctor of the Church by Pope Benedict XVI. We will consider welected passages of her writings, and in particular her Scivias, to come to a greater awareness of her Christology, her cosmology and her monastic spirituality, as well as her "way of the heart" on the spiritual journey. Ample time for personal prayer and reflection will be provided.
Fr. Stephen Coffey, a Massachusetts native, is a monk of the Camaldolese Congregation of the Order of St. Benedict and lives at the Monastery of the Risen Christ in San Luis Obispo, where he is director of oblates. He is a retreat director, spiritual director, and is involved in other formation ministries at the Hermitage in Big Sur and at San Lorenzo Seminary in Santa Ynez. He is a graduate of St. John's School of Theology in Collegeville, MN and holds degrees in Christian Spirituality from Creighton in Omaha and in Pastoral Leadership from Chaminade in Honolulu.
