All lovers of St. Thomas, his theological school and method, and his way of life should take note of this wonderful (and pretty affordable -- 675 Euro, ca. $728) summer opportunity based in Norcia, Italy, home of the Benedictine monks who sing beautifully and make a killer beer.
The 2015 Albert the Great Summer Program will take place this summer from July 12th-25th. The theme for the 2015 Summer Program is St. Paul's First Epistle to the Corinthians. We will be undertaking a thorough reading of the Letter, following St. Thomas's commentary upon the epistle as our guide. The Epistle offers the opportunity to explore in depth the subject of grace as it is found principally in the sacraments. In particular, St. Paul's letter focusses on the sacraments of Baptism, Matrimony, and the Eucharist, and so participants will gain a greater understanding not only of these sacraments, but also an understanding of how grace works through the sacraments so as to order man to his end.
