RS 545 Overview
Christian Spirituality describes the rich and unique relationship of each Christian with God. While this relationship begins in baptism, it is expressed and lived in unique ways, often called “spiritualities.” Just as the “gifts” of the Holy Spirit are many, so too are the spiritualities inspired by the Spirit (e.g., Monastic spirituality, Mendicant spirituality, Ignatian spirituality, Black spirituality, etc). This course introduces students to some of the major spiritualities in the Christian, and specifically Catholic, tradition, and especially their unique “practices.” The course will ask students to practice different spiritual exercises as they seek to discover their own spirituality, as well as understand and respect the spiritualities of others.
