The Discovery of Merciful Love

Keith Egan T.O.Carm

In Thérèse’s discovery of Merciful Love, she found a very Orthodox Christian way of understanding of how God is present to us – we use the term grace to describe that. The lecturer presents a review of some of the major times in the development of grace in our theology and shows the context within which Thérèse intuitively or instinctively was finding her own way of understanding how God relates to us.

From Solitude to Contemplation

Keith Egan T.O.Carm

Carmel’s various ministries, whether preaching, or teaching, or the all important ministry of the contemplative life, are crucial to the variations of the way Carmel spirituality is lived. What would Carmelites do without the influence of Elijah? Even more important in Carmelite life is solitude. Solitude lays at the very heart of the original charism of Carmel and has remained so in various manifestations whenever new life has been breathed into this spirituality. When great figures in Carmel’s tradition have articulated their understanding of Carmel’s way of life, they have retrieved solitude as a crucial theme in Carmel’s tapestry.

The Dark Night as Liberation of the True Self

Keith Egan T.O.Carm

This speaker helps us in looking for ways to improve how we read, and thus better understand, the poetry and the prose of John of the Cross from the perspective of the transformation of the old self into the new self as related in The Dark Night. While older translations of St. John refer to the Old Man and New Man, the new revised standard version renders the original words of Old Man as Old Self and New Man as New Self. That change to self, in large measure, has been made out of regard for contemporary gender sensitivity, but also made under the influence of modern psychology and spirituality, which speak much about the self as the agent of psychological or spiritual life.

From the Wadi to San Jose: Teresa’s Renewal of Contemplative Prayer

Keith Egan T.O.Carm

The speaker reminds us of the primitive meaning of “crises” (from the Greek verb “creno,” which means, first of all to decide, to determine, to choose) and its opportunity to derive wisdom from a living tradition. Indeed, there have been many disasters in the history of Carmel and this presentation looks at some of those crises so that we may discover what decisions Carmelites made during difficult times and what effects these decisions had on the way Carmelites pray. This is a look at the evolution of Carmelite prayer, its good days and its bad.

Eucharist and Contemplation

This lecture strives to show that there is ample reason to reflect on Eucharist, and in particular on the relationship between Eucharist and contemplation.

Eros and the Song of Songs in John of the Cross

Keith Egan T.O.Carm

In The Living Flame of Love, John of the Cross speaks about a hunger for God that is so intense that it makes the soul faint. John would surely have had in mind not only Psalm 84 from which he took that phrase, but Saint Augustine’s Heart is Restless Until it Rests in You. Longings of the heart are the stuff of the human story.

A Theology of Desire

Keith Egan T.O.Carm

From the first chapter in the Song of Songs, the second verse, we discover how a woman’s desire for intimacy, love, and union has for centuries provided inspiration, symbols, and language about the mystical encounter from God. From Origin to Teresa of Jesus and John of the Cross, and Thérèse of Lisieux and beyond, the passionate desires in the Song of Songs have fed the imagination and shaped the consciousness of Christian mystics.

A Theology of Wisdom

Keith Egan T.O.Carm

“Among all human pursuits, the pursuit of wisdom is more perfect, more noble, more useful, and more joyful than anything else you can do.” – Thomas Aquinas. Who of us does not want to be wise? It’s a universal aspiration, but a quest that has numerous facets to it. Cultures passing on a wisdom tradition asking how can you cope with the little and the big questions of life. Perhaps it goes all the way back to Plato who seems to have been the person who told us that philosophy is the love of wisdom.

The Carmelite School of Prayer: a Coat of Many Colors

Keith J. Egan, T.O. Carm.

Opening the 2013 Forum concerning Carmel’s way of prayer, Fr. Egan shows us the development of prayer in the Carmel tradition in order that those certain moments might aid us in prayer. He shows us how Christian prayer is rooted in the scriptures, immersed in a relationship with Christ, lived as a Church and celebrated in the sacraments. Carmel’s prayer is like Joseph’s coat in all its diversity beginning with its roots in the early Church ending with the mystical tradition and St Therese.
