Living Flame of Love, the title of one of the most well-known works of St. John of the Cross, is also the name of the International Congress of the International Center of Teresian San Juanista (CITeS), University of the Mystic, organized each year in Avila. This year, the fourth convocation of the Congress will take place as scheduled, between August 31 and September 6. As usual, people may attend in person or online according to the director of CITeS. If circumstances prohibit personal attendance, the Congress will still take place online.
Admirable efforts have been made by the CITeS community to adapt the conference space to the preventative measures required by sanitation authorities. Consequently, the Congress as well as other activities that will take place in the Center this summer will be celebrated with absolute security.
Fr. Francisco Javier Sancho has indicated that this world congress will include highly renowned specialists who “will help us enter into the most profound center of the soul’s work in order to understand the depth and breadth of St. John of the Cross’s experience and doctrine. A congress in which we will come close to St. John of the Cross, his artistic and literary creation and his doctrine, discovering new arenas of reading and interpretation as well as interreligious and interdisciplinary dialogues.”
