Ideas in Passing
from Joan Chittister
The Way of the Cross:
the Path to New Life
Lent--a time to choose direction
Lent is an opportunity to look again at who
we are, at where we’re going in life, at
how we’re getting to where we say we
want to go. The Chinese say, “If you don’t
know where you’re going, any road will
take you there.” But the aimlessness, the
confusion, the anomie that go with it, wear
us down, wear us out.

Everybody needs to know that they have
lived for something.....>>>

The Sacred In-Between
By Joan Chittister
Life. Plans. Hope. Dignity. Death. And Life
again. Here Sister Joan reflects on all this
and more. These succinct seeds of
wisdom are imbued with a deep awareness
of God’s love for us through all the joys,
failures, misunderstandings, and questions
of each day. “Life,” says Sister Joan, “is
about doing the best you can in the
moment in which you find yourself so
that, eventually, you can find yourself
even wiser than you now are.” Brief yet
powerful, these meditations are perfect
companions for each day of life’s journey
