Words of Spirituality
by ENZO BIANCHI
If joy is our responsibility as Christians, we need to dedicate ourselves to practicing it - first, because this will help us defeat the spiritus tristitiae (spirit of melancholy) that always threatens us, and second, because we cannot deprive the world of our testimony of the joy whose source is faith.
XXV International Ecumenical Conference of Orthodox Spirituality
THE GIFT OF HOSPITALITY
Bose, 6–9 September 2017
in collaboration with the Orthodox Churches
The 25th International Ecumenical Conference on Orthodox Spirituality, organized in collaboration with the Orthodox Churches (Bose, 6–9 September 2017) wishes to examine more closely an essential dimension of Christian life: xenitia, the consciousness of being strangers and temporary residents on earth (cf. Heb 11,13), which leads to welcoming the other as a gift of God, to philoxenia (cf. Heb 13,2).
