Incline Our Hearts, O God

by Carol Zinn, SSJ - LCWR Past President

For the shortest month on the western calendar, February 2015 invites a fullness that defies its brevity. Whether we consider the international, national, or ecclesial remembrances, February provides opportunities for an examination of heart, conscience, and consciousness.

The Consoling Mystery of God-With-Us

by Sharon Holland, IHM -- LCWR President

As the last days of Advent move steadily on toward Christmas, the ancient O Antiphons enter our Evening Prayer expressing our longings and desires. As I reflected on them, I was aware that they could well be prayed in any season.

O Wisdom!  Come, teach us the ways of truth. Show those who govern in church and in civil society what is good for the people. Come to Syria, Yemen, West Africa, and to countless unknown
places.

Experience Rome Through the Lives of Its People

by Sharon Holland, IHM - LCWR President-Elect

Much has been written about the LCWR Rome trip of 2014. Around the edges of intense meetings, however, we shared bits of the everyday lives of people around us. The Domus Carmelitana, our home away from home, reminded us that religious institutes in many places have been faced with numeric decline and the repurposing of buildings. Half of a large structure of the Carmelite Fathers is now a place of hospitality for tourists and pilgrims in Rome.

Many Ways to Celebrate One Faith

by Florence Deacon, OSF

This Palm Sunday as I listened to the African American Spiritual, “Were You There When They Crucified My Lord?” being sung in Chinese at Holy Family Church in Taipei, Taiwan, I began reflecting on other Holy Week observances in which I had participated over the years.

'The Joy of the Gospel'

by Sharon Holland, IHM -- LCWR President Elect

Never make an important decision in November or February!" So said the novice director, decades ago. Perhaps the cold grey days of a Michigan November, introducing winter, and the still grey days of February, delaying spring, prompted that warning to young novices.
