November 28, 2011 – Blessed Elizabeth of the Trinity II

“This program picks up on the biographical sketch of Blessed Elizabeth of the Trinity after her entry into Carmel.  It then goes on to explore some of her major writings, both her individual retreats and her letters.  Blessed Elizabeth understood very clearly the need to dispense with anything that did not lead her to God, but she did not attempt to achieve this by simply leaving the world.  Rather, she shows, through her writings, how the real objective must be to bring everything in a persons life under the submission of Christ.  She speaks of the need to see with the “single eye” and practice the principles of silence, simplicity and solitude.”
