Stay the Course of Contemplation

We Are the 99% - The Occupy Movement (Spring 2012)

Resolutions to Action Spring 2012

8th Day Center for Justice has worked on economic issues since its founding in 1974. We have witnessed the ongoing struggles of communities made poor to claim a space in a cultural imagination and political discourse that is not shaped by the misconception that poverty is a choice.

The current discourse on poverty in the United States is shaped by the financial downturn that erupted in 2008. However our experience has shown us that many different communities locally and globally were struggling long before the "meltdown."

Annual Report 2011-2012: Mystery Unfolding

LCWR Annual Report 2011-2012

Our LCWR annual assemblies are bookends, holding between them a variety of texts. A theme connects the volumes, but each is penned with the distinct flavor of a specific region. Sometimes, as was the case this year, there is a turn of events that leads to a surprise ending, or more accurately, to a still-evolving story line that we construct together. Mystery is the predominant genre.

A Counter-Melody Beneath the Words

As the LCWR presidency met with various Vatican councils and congregations shortly after Easter, our experiences paralleled those of the liturgical season recalling death and resurrection, persecution and a faith community committed to the Gospel, and Jesus’ greeting to his dispirited disciples, “fear not, I bring you peace.” We appreciate your prayers, words of wisdom, and encouragement as we continue to discern both “what is the new emerging?” and our response to the mandate given to LCWR by the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith.

Economic Justice Advocacy Critically Needed (Oct. 2011, Volume 20, Number 3)

RTA Fall 2011 (Volume 20, Number 3)

Economic Justice Advocacy Critically Needed: NETWORK continues to assert that the budget is a moral document and that the spending and revenue outlined therein reflect our nation’s values. Women religious strongly support the “preferential option for the poor” and are, therefore, advocating to ensure that the budget preserves the social safety net so essential to those most in need...

What's Most Essential?

Perhaps you have experienced what I just have. I recently returned from several days on the road to a pile of messages and unfinished tasks on my desk. I began to sort, asking myself, "What needs most immediate attention here? What do I do first? What’s most essential?" As I set about prioritizing, those questions repeated within me and I began to hear them on multiple levels. I realized that "What’s most essential?" is the ultimate Lenten question. It might just be the ultimate leadership question, as well.

Walking Together in Service of the Gospel of Jesus Christ

A few weeks ago I attended the opening of the final stop of the Women & Spirit traveling museum exhibit in Sacramento. It was a glorious occasion, a bittersweet celebration, knowing that this excellent exhibit would not continue past June, but that more than a million people have learned about the contributions women religious have made to the growth of the United States.

Winter 2012: Behold, I am Doing Something New... Can You Not Perceive It?

$5.00

This issue of Occasional Papers focuses on how we take in new information and create an openness for seeing and understanding “the new” which God is doing. What does it take to live in the world today where much of what seemed certain and secure is no longer such, and where divisions in ways of thinking and perceiving seem to be separating us? What are the unique challenges to religious leaders during these times? How can women religious leaders best engage their members in inquiries that stretch their capacity to be transformed by new learning and new ways of comprehending the action of God?
