After having finished our fourteen months of dialoguing with God and St. Catherine of Siena, we will now spend the next year conversing and going deeper into God with the 14 th century Dominican John Tauler (1300-61). He is a hidden treasure and perhaps the most underappreciated mystic of our Catholic Faith. He is both profound and accessible. He is a “master of living” the spiritual life and is markedly Dominican with an emphasis on the Word of
God, contemplation, a humble ascent to the heights, Jesus Christ, the Cross, the sublimity of the Triune God, the Sacraments, preaching, and the salvation of souls. “God is in the abyss of our humility,” John Tauler tells us, and he will lead us there.


Join us on the “Dominican House of Prayer” YouTube channel, the 3 rd Wednesday of every month at 7:30pm (EST), as we ponder about 20 pages from sermons of John Tauler. You can read along or simply show up. Each month, Fr. Ignatius John Schweitzer, OP will give a conference talk, followed by a period of questions and comments from you all. We will begin Wednesday January 17, 2024 at 7:30pm (EST). It will be live-streamed and also available afterwards: https://www.youtube.com/c/DominicanHouseOfPrayer.


We will be using an older edition of John Tauler’s sermons (1910) that contains 812 pages of his sermons and is edited by Walter Elliott: The Sermons and Conferences of John Tauler, of the Order of Preachers, Surnamed “The Illuminated Doctor.” A copy can be found at a reasonable price from reprint publishers such as Forgotten Books, Alpha Edition, or Legare Street Press. Or just type “John Tauler and Walter Elliott” into the search engine. Or it can be purchased in Amazon here.  It is also online and can be found here. 

 

 

 

 

Tauler will draw us deeper

into surrender and into God:

“Let Love do thy planning!”
