The Mystery of Love, with Jim Brady

Everyone has a driving desire to love and to be loved. So why do we seem to miss the mark so often? Beginning in September, the Dominican cloistered nuns of Corpus Christi Monastery and guest Jim Brady will be unraveling this mystery in a five-session series the second Saturday of the month. Based on the groundbreaking “Love and Responsibility” by Karol Wojtyla (Saint John Paul II), some of the very practical, real-life relationship issues to be addressed include:

– What makes a true friendship?
– How does attraction lead to either selfless love or a relationship in which someone is being used?
– How do I know if I am in a relationship of authentic love or just another relationship doomed to failure?
– If everyone is made for spousal love, how is this desire reconciled with vocations to the priesthood, religious life or dedicated singlehood?

Every Second Saturday beginning in September | 9:15-11:30 a.m. (Mass available at 8 a.m.)
September 9, 2017 | October, 14, 2017 | November 11, 2017 | December 9, 2017 | January 13, 2018
Cost: $45 (includes books, materials)
Corpus Christi Monastery, 215 Oak Grove Avenue, Menlo Park, CA
