Often what feels like hunger for food is really a hunger for something much deeper, says Mary DeTurris Poust. Author of “Cravings: a Catholic wrestles with food, self-image and god,” she will explore the connection between physical and spiritual nourishment in a free public presentation Monday, March 7.
“Food often becomes a way to fill the void, but it never truly satisfies,” she says. “The result is an endless cycle of easting issues, self-esteem struggles and untapped spiritual potential.”
Offered by Assumption University as part of its Christian Culture Series, her talk, entitled “Exploring the connection between food, faith and our quest for wholeness and holiness,” is set for 7 p.m. at Our Lady of Mount Carmel Church, 4401 Mount Royal Drive.
