CARMELITE RETREAT-PILGRIMAGE WITH CACS

UK BASED EVENT

Pilgrimage is about transformation. It’s about making us more like Jesus Christ. This is what both Saint Teresa and Saint John of the Cross set out to do in their writings such as Teresa’s Way of Perfection and John’s Living Flame of Love. Indeed, there’s no more powerful way to understanding their life transforming teaching than by experiencing their world first-hand. Likewise, pilgrimages to the Holy Land bring the Bible alive in an absolutely unique way.
