This is What I Know Now

by Mary Pellegrino, CSJ

Occasional Papers -- Summer 2017

$5.00

This issue of Occasional Papers will take the theme, “Put Out into the Deep,” (Luke 5:4). Through a variety of approaches, we will explore the call that comes to us through the complexities of these times – globally, nationally, and within religious life realities. Fragile global economies, acts of terrorism, enormous growths in science, rapidly evolving technologies, as well as seismic changes in our religious communities create conditions that urge us toward deep thought and reflection in ways perhaps not required by earlier times.

Like budgets and calendars, annual reports communicate something about who we are and what we value. They’re intended to render accountability.

Everywhere we read about the need for contemplation, stillness, presence, silence, as well as alarming predictions regarding the new presidency.
