Remembering as Contemplative Practice

by Mary Pellegrino, CSJ -- LCWR President

Summer 2016: Living Transformation

$5.00

This issue of Occasional Papers on “Living Transformation” explores the multiple processes of transformation underway in the cosmos and on this planet and how our personal journeys intersect with these larger stories of transformation. Writers explore: What is it that the world needs from us as we individually and corporately undergo transformation – transformation of our understandings of life, of ourselves, and of religious life? Why does it matter that we fully participate in the processes of transformation as we are able?

Avanti! (Daily Reflection Book)

$6.00

The Leadership Conference of Women Religious (LCWR) presents a new book, Avanti!, a reflective resource for our spiritual journey. The word "avanti", the Italian word for “forward,” was a central focus in the address delivered by LCWR president Sister Sharon Holland, IHM, at the 2015 LCWR assembly where she spoke of the attitudes of heart and mind needed to proceed forward even when what is ahead is dark and unknown.

Mystery/Transformation -- A Butterfly Experience?

by Marcia Allen, CSJ -- LCWR President

Our 2016 assembly theme: Transformation and Mystery! We get the idea. Our lives will never be the same again. We are in the midst of a transformation from the known to the unknown. In his address to the Canadian Religious Conference in May of this year, theologian Simon Pierre Arnold, wove his thoughts about religious life around a theme that he called the “era of the butterfly,” the title of his latest book.

Embraced by Mystery

by Sharon Holland, IHM -- LCWR Past President

As I write, our country awaits, in anticipation or trepidation, the national conventions of our two major political parties. As you read, those events may be ended or in process, naming key players for the next months in US politics.

2015 - 2016: Springs of the Great Deep Burst Forth: Meeting the Thirsts of the World

Mystery and Transformation

The journey continues! From our 2015 assembly we move from meeting the thirsts of the world through the springs of the Great Deep bursting forth, those waters of life flowing in and through us, to living the mystery of transformation -- our 2016 theme. Those waters meeting the thirsts of our world took the shape of a multitude of works, services to the world through our conference’s central office, and through the regions’ individual members.
