Spiritual Classic Book Study for Adults – The Ladder of Divine Ascent
The group will meet every Wednesday at 7:30pm, beginning April 17th.
The Ladder of Divine Ascent was the most widely used handbook of the ascetic life in the ancient Greek Church. It was written while the author St. John Climacus (c. 579-649) was abbot of the monastery of St. Catherine on Mount Sinai. The ascetical life is portrayed as a ladder which each aspirant must ascend, each step being a virtue to be acquired or a vice to be surrendered. Its thirty steps reflect the hidden life of Christ himself.
This is a continuation of the Philokalia Study group and will lead us into some of the more practical implications and application of the themes we discussed over the last three months. It will also allow us to touch upon new thematic aspects of the Eastern Christian hesychastic spirituality. For more information go to scholachristi.blogspot.com or contact Fr. David at firstname.lastname@example.org. The website for podcasts is www.philokalia.podbean.com
The books will be provided for $20.00.

Newman Legacy Lecture (see flier)
April 18, 2013
Power Center Ballroom, Duquesne University
Did Mary Die? Newman on Sin, Death and Mary’s Mortality
Join distinguished theologian Dr. Paul Griffiths as he explores the writings of Blessed John Henry Cardinal Newman on Mary. Professor Griffiths finds a tension in Newman’s thought between his suggestion that Mary was assumed bodily into heaven without dying and his insistence that she did in fact die. As Dr. Griffiths explores this tension and attempts to resolve it, he will show the relevance of Newman’s thinking on this issue to a broader understanding of the relation between sin and death.
This Second Annual Newman Legacy Lecture is presented by the National Institute for Newman Studies.
About Dr. Paul J. Griffiths
Dr. Griffiths is the Warren Chair of Catholic Theology at Duke Divinity School and the influential author of many books, including Intellectual Appetite: A Theological Grammar and Song of Songs: A Commentary. He lectures and publishes widely on Catholic philosophical theology, religious diversity, early Christian thought and Buddhist thought.
