Social psychologists report that many people today are struggling to come to grips with a disillusioning present, battling melancholy that arises from the loss of an ideal, the crushing of hope.
The danger of such melancholy is that sorrow becomes a substitute for contemporary investment of oneself in action that could lead to transformation. The gospels portray Jesus grappling with powerful emotions during the last week of his life: weeping over the city of Jerusalem, burning with zeal in the temple, agonizing in the garden of Gethsemane. 
Our course follows Jesus on a tumultuous emotional journey by which he broke free of captivity to loss and grief and became the agent of salvation for others.
