March 2014 Program Overview


   Merton and Sophia:
            Wisdom in Our Life and Prayer…

On March 21-23, Wisdom House invites you to a weekend retreat, a sustained meditation on the divine presence in the world, Wisdom-Sophia, that will draw from the life and witness of Trappist monk Thomas Merton.  Join Christopher Pramuk, PhD, for this enlightening and intriguing program based on his widely acclaimed book, Sophia:  The Hidden Christ of Merton.  The book was awarded the International Thomas Merton Society’s 2011 Thomas Merton Award.

Dr. Pramuk teaches theology and spirituality at Xavier University in Cincinnati, Ohio.  He has authored four books, the latest being, Hope Sings So Beautiful: Graced Encounters Across the Color Line (www.hopesingssobeautiful.org), and also written award-winning essays for America magazine, Cross Currents, and others.  

The retreat will begin with Friday dinner at 6 PM and end with lunch on Sunday.
