LUMEN CHRISTI INSTITUTE
Catholics & Muslims: History, Theology, Encounters - Part III

Please join the Lumen Christi Institute and the American Cusanus Society for a 3-part webinar series on the history of encounter between Catholics and Muslims. The third session will be presented on Wednesday, September 8 at 4 pm PDT and is entitled “Francis & Francis: Encountering Muslims, Past & Present”.

This session will consider two Christian-Muslim encounters: the first between St. Francis of Assisi and Sultan al-Malik in 1219 in Egypt during the Crusades, and the second between Pope Francis and Grand Imam Ahmed el-Tayeb in Abu Dhabi eight centuries later, when they co-signed the historic “Document on Human Fraternity.” How have personal relationships between Christians and Muslims affected both the practice of interreligious dialogue and the Catholic theology of Islam?

3.         Center for Spiritual Development in Orange:  Calendar of Upcoming Online Events

The Center for Spiritual Development in Orange is sponsoring the following events in its series, “The Sojourner’s Well:  Refreshment for Spiritual Directors.”

“Focusing and Felt-Sense for Deeper Insights in Spiritual Accompaniment Part 1”- Sat. September 18
9 am – 12:30 pm, PDT via Zoom
Fee: $50
Fr. David Robinson, SJ and Sr. Jeanne Fallon, CSJ
BioSpiritual Focusing can offer a path to help one get a body-feel for the significant issues and experiences in life.  It can help one learn to sense how experience feels in the body, not simply what one thinks about it. “Meaning is not only thought in our minds; it is felt within our bodies” (Fr. Peter Campbell). In these sessions, presenters will assist spiritual directors to help serious seekers to recognize that the human body itself gives voice to its own experience. The body has its unique role in the spiritual development of each person.
The purpose of these sessions is to assist the director to reflect to the directee what she/he is sensing within. The director creates an environment of “caring presence” so the directee can engage in his/her internal dialogue. This is not a Companioning Course – only an introduction.
For Spiritual Directors only
