Mystical Landscapes Continued

Led by: Fr. Craig Morrison, O. Carm.

August 17 – 19, 2018 Friday–Sunday


A recent exhibition at the Art Gallery of Ontario, titled Mystical Landscapes, presented masterpieces by Van Gogh, Claude Monet, and Emily Carr among other artists, who painted between 1870 and 1930. The official catalogue for Mystical Landscapes notes how the writings of the great Carmelite mystics, Teresa of Avila, John of the Cross and Thérèse of Lisieux, influenced these artists. During this retreat we will reflect on several paintings by these and other artists of this period to discover how their works illustrate the deepest insights of the Carmelite mystical tradition.
