The “Teresianum” Pontifical Faculty and Pontifical Institute of Spirituality in Rome offered a course to a group of Italian Discalced Carmelite nuns from the 25th to the 28th of June this year.
The sisters had done, at least in part, the online Spiritual Theology course offered by the Teresianum and then had the opportunity to complete a face-to-face session in which to deepen some of the subjects offered in the course and present their questions and contributions to the professors in charge. Four lessons were planned for each day in the morning and another four in the afternoon, combining the professors’ skilful presentation with time for discussion.
The academic experience, very positive in everyone’s opinion, was brought to completion by the participation of the Carmelite sisters in the liturgy and community meals. A happy coincidence allowed our sisters to be also present at the farewell party for the third-year students of theology of the St John of the Cross International College, celebrated on the 27th.
