This course will look first at some well known texts from the scriptures and from tradition on spirituality. Then it will try to outline the main points in the growth in holiness of the Christian, taking into account the different walks of life to which people are called. Finally it will show how in all of this the church strains forward towards the kingdom of God.


The documents of Vatican II, especially Lumen Gentium and Gaudium et Spes; J. AUMANN, Spiritual Theology; R. GARRIGOU-LAGRANGE, The Three Ages of the Spiritual Life; but many other texts of well known spiritual writers from the churches tradition will also be used in class.
