A history of mysticism in Catholicism

13 Oct 2019 | Miranda King

From our earliest days, human beings have sought to extend our vision beyond the material world, seeking out the deeper truths of our existence. Catholic mystics continued that tradition, retreating into prayer and meditation in order to connect the revelations of Jesus with the movements of the Holy Spirit in their hearts and what they knew of the God’s universe. In doing this they were able to open up new ways of seeing and living in our world.

In this feature we explore some of the key writings of Catholic mystics through the ages. Each spoke in a particular way to their own times and contexts, but their writings continue to call us back to a more authentic way of living out the life of faith today.

Explorations: Mental illness

07 May 2019 | Andrew Hamilton SJ
