 where the good way lies.
Walk in it and find rest for your souls."

~ Jeremiah 6:16

A Retreat with The Rev. John Michael Hayes, Ph.D., ABPP, Priest-Psychologist-Psychoanalyst

The poet Gerard Manley Hopkins wrote “the world is charged with the grandeur of God.” The human psyche is the most mysterious and profoundly beautiful dimension of God’s creation. The psyche’s wildly unscripted and unpredictable depths most mirror the indeterminate freedom and creativity of the Divine, expressed in dreams that come unbidden, that disturb our set and settled opinions, overturn our precious self-images, and stretch our very sense of reality, as they point the way to a new future and intimate wisdom.

Contemplating Christ

The Gospels and the Interior Life

The incarnation has made mystics of us all. What if we read the gospels as if that were true? In his book Contemplating Christ, Fr. Vincent Pizzuto, offers an exploration of the interior life for modern contemplatives that is as beautiful as it is compelling. With an emphasis on the gospels and Christian mystical tradition, his book explores ancient themes in new and surprising ways. Drawing on his rich experience as an academic and priest, Pizzuto gradually unfolds the Christian mystery of deification to which the whole of biblical revelation and the Christian contemplative life are ordered: through the incarnation, we have all been made"other Christs" in the world.
