Women Religious really are Prophets !!
I am reading Sandra Schneiders Prophets In Their Own Country: Women Religious Bearing Witness to the Gospel in a Troubled Church. Orbis, 2011. Most of what she says in the book has been published in articles in the National Catholic Reporter and I am just enjoying having these in book form as Sandra gives such a positive view of religious life and our role today as we are living a new form of religious life, but one very much like the life that Jesus lived and would live today.
Actually, the book is very refreshing and makes so much sense; it also makes me grateful for my vocation.
