Benedictine Spirituality
The Four Last Things: Death, Judgment, Heaven, Hell

May 19-21, 2017

Saint Benedict instructs his monks to remind themselves that they are going to die.  A deep appreciation of one’s mortality and consciousness of man’s supernatural ends are central to living the Christian life to its fullness.  This retreat will focus on the four last things in the Holy Rule and their mature development in the writings of Saints Robert Bellarmine and Alphonsus Liguori, and how to apply their wisdom to daily living.

Retreat Master: Father Maurus Mount, O.S.B., is assistant professor of classical languages at Saint Vincent Seminary. A monk of Saint Vincent Archabbey since 2001, he earned a master of arts degree in classical languages from the University of Illinois and a doctorate from the University of Vienna in 2015. 

Check-in: 3 to 5:30 p.m., Leander Hall. Retreat ends at 1 p.m. Sunday.
