COP 21: Progress on Climate Change -- Finally

LCWR Resolutions to Action - Winter 2016
by Joan Brown, OSF

Ursula’s face glistens like the sun shining upon Pacific Ocean waves as they lap upon an island beach that was her beloved home. Her home is now a memory.

Winter 2016: Living in Communion

$5.00

This issue of Occasional Papers explores the period in religious life as one rich with potential for deep transformation. Although one could interpret the difficult changes being experienced within religious institutes today as a sign that this way of life is dying, these deep changes may also be seen as a way of preparing religious congregations for significant transformation. The articles in this issue provide assistance to religious with effectively navigating this period marked by large amounts of loss, relinquishment, and death. Such losses can become obstacles to the ability to re-imagine religious life for these times and the times ahead.

This daughter got to her mom’s house as the bodies of her brother, mother, and wounded sister were being carried out of the house on stretchers. She’s not interested in soccer.
