Lux & Claritas


Introducing LIFE IN TRUTH - a joint venture of Lux in Tenebris – Light in Darkness & Claritas Spiritual Theology.

Combined, these two missions form one apostolate which seeks to bring greater light, truth, and clarity in charity to as many people as possible, so that captives can be set free, souls can be saved, people can have greater peace – in short, so that people can live a life in truth!

Join Dr Denise Clare Oliver and Dr Christina Pal as they embark on this new adventure in God!

Join us on this journey so that together we may be further transformed by grace, enlightened by truth, and inflamed by love.

Jesus, the Eucharist & the Gospel of St John

Although we hear the Gospels of Matthew, Mark, and Luke once every three years in the liturgical cycle of Sunday Mass readings, we hear the Gospel of John every year – during the Christmas and Easter Seasons, the climax of Lent, and other Solemnities and Feasts.

This course seeks to explore what makes the Gospel of John so special and unique. We will consider the structure and content of this mystical gospel, what it has in common with the other gospels, and what is unique. We will focus on St John’s rich theology of the Eucharist and how the various Old Testament sacrifices help us to understand more deeply Jesus' teaching about the Eucharist, the Sacraments, the Divinity of Christ, the Person of the Holy Spirit, the Indwelling of the Trinity, Discipleship, Christ’s fulfillment of the Old Covenant, and more.


START on 25th or 27th September 2024
