Dear all! Just to remind you: we have a break in the organized meetings of the Student Chaplaincy until January 14, 2018, when we will resume our activities: then with a common evaluation session regarding this semester. I will put out some more detailed questions to consider here in the week before the 14th. Until then, I want to thank you all for participating in the last year and wish everybody a fruitful end of the Season of Advent, a Merry Christmas and a blessed, new 2018. Looking forward to seeing you all, perhaps in company with some new members brought with you, in January. God bless! /Fr. Thomas SJ, Student Chaplain Stockholm

Welcome to our last Chaplaincy's Sunday Meeting before Christmas, December 10th:

LIVING THEOLOGY OF THE BODY IN MARRIAGE - A CHRISTIAN VOCATION

Our last Sunday meeting this year (we will resume the meetings again on January 14th, 2018) will be about vocations - namely the most common but also perhaps in many ways today most misunderstood Christian vocation: marriage and family.

We will meet Mr Peter Wiberg, IT Engineer and Catholic, married father of three from Uppsala, who discovered the Catholic teaching on chastity seven years ago, which profoundly changed his marriage from boredom to growth in joy and love. He will talk about the Theology of Body and the virtue of chastity linked to every person's particular vocation, and of the proper role of sexuality, i.e. in the vocation to marriage. What does it mean to be chaste in marriage? How will it help me to grow as a human person and experience true self-giving love and joy in my life? Peter is a requested lecturer on this topic in different parishes, conferences and retreats around in the Stockholm diocese and is also behind a web site for the Theology of the Body directed to young Christians who seek an alternative to the secular culture's ideas about sexuality.

Time: 7.15pm-9pm (gathering directly after the English Mass for refreshments, lecture starting at 7.45pm)
Venue (as usual): Café Eugenia, St. Eugenia Catholic Church, Kungsträdgårdsgatan 12, Stockholm

Just a small practical change regarding this coming Sunday Dec 3: we will NOT gather in the Café Eugenia for snacks as usual, directly after the English Mass. Instead we will join the English parish for snacks and refreshments in the "Main hall" from 7.15pm when the English Mass is finished. At 7.30pm I will open our normal venue Café Eugenia so that we can start moving in there in order to take part of our lecture about St. Teresa of Avila (see information below!). Those of you NOT attending the English 6 pm Mass in St. Eugenia, please note that you are ALSO welcome to have refreshments with the parish and the rest of the Student group in the "Main hall" before we start our meeting. See you on Sunday!

Welcome to the Chaplaincy's Sunday Meeting, December 3rd:
ST. TERESA OF AVILA: A WHOLE-HEARTED WOMAN

We end our series this semester on saints with the Spanish 16th century Carmelite nun and Mystic St. Teresa of Avila. She can be regarded as one of the more important spiritual teachers and reformers in the Catholic history of Modern age. In her writings we meet an incredibly positive view, for her time, of both God and the human person. To her, "inner prayer", a method of prayer she preferred, is a "diligent conversation" with God as a friend. She was declared Doctor of the Church, in a very exclusive company of saints, by Pope Paul VI in 1970.

But who was she? And what did she teach and do? What significance does e.g. her way of combining a contemplative life, i.e. being a Mystic, with a remarkable decisiveness in action have for us today?

This and other aspects of St. Teresa of Avila, Ms Dr Ingrid Lindström Leo, Senior Lecturer in Spanish and member of the St. Eugenia parish, will talk to us about on Sunday. Most welcome!

Time: 7.15pm-9pm (gathering directly after the English Mass for refreshments, lecture starting at 7.45pm)
Venue: Café Eugenia, St. Eugenia Catholic Church, Kungsträdgårdsgatan 12, Stockholm
