Theology of the Spiritual Exercises and Catholic Priesthood

SAT3223HF  L0101
Offered in Fall 2010  ·  New Course · St. Augustine's (2661 Kingston Rd.) Scarborough Site

A theological study of the dynamics of the Spiritual Exercises of St. Ignatius Loyola with specific application in the life and ministry of the Catholic priest. At the centre of both the Spiritual Exercises and Catholic Priesthood is the Person of Jesus Christ.  The two basic interconnecting links in one's response to Christ dealt with in this course are: 1) the great desires elicited by the Exercises, and 2) the call to "labor with Christ" in his service of the world.  This course is designed specifically for those preparing for Roman Catholic priesthood and who have not yet made the Exercises. The student will deepen and understand better theologically the intimate connection (Vocational) between his deepest desires to be with Christ (Christological) and the priestly work with Christ (Soteriological) he is called to participate in. Lectures, structured discussions of readings, class participation, four papers. One year of theology is required, preferably with Christology and Grace.
