This course deals with the philosophical possibility and theologically claimed reality of a relationship (prayer) with the Mystery that is referred to with the word “God.” After consideration of relevant fundamental theological reflections it will consider the nature of prayer, contemplative prayer, Franciscan prayer, and prayer in the light of evil and suffering. A visit to the Mt. Irenaeus Franciscan contemplative community is offered as a co-curricular activity of the course.
