This Centre for Contemplation and Action (CAC) online course is one of the , at present, 7 online ‘spirituality’ courses it offers.
I will be writing about the other 6 in due course
Breathing Under Water/Introductory Wisdom School/Mary Magdalene
Divine Exchange/The Franciscan Way/The Interior Castle
In ‘immortal Diamond’ Richard Rohr (Franciscan priest & CAC founder) reminds us of the goodness of God and His creation including us – men and women created in His ‘good’ image (Gen. 1v26/28)
God looks at his newly created world with loving delight and says ‘it is very good’ (Gen.1v31). The Immortal Diamond -a quotation from a poem by Gerard Manley Hopkins- is both the title of Father Rohr’s book on which the course is based and the True Self that God created in His image.
The major theme of this book is transformation-how God’s grace is at work to enable us (fallen from that original grace) to be restored to our original True Self. The Immortal Diamond
In the forum posts which I made during work on the course in 2018 (and which are shown in the Word document below) I noticed how God’s Spirit has been teaching me what this True Self is and cooperate with and allow Him to transform my False Self into this deeper and truer ‘made in the image of God ‘ self.
