"However Long the Night" by Sister Nancy Schreck OSF/Recommended for Prayerful Reflection

Bridget Mary's Response:
A deeply spiritual reflection on where religious life is today  "in the middle", struggling through a dark night of the soul! Sister Nancy provides nurturing food for thought not only for religious orders but for individuals and groups who struggle to live the Gospel during times of stress, loss, change and misunderstanding.  Right now the Leadership Conference of Women Religious faces a take-over of their organization by the Vatican. In this address, Sister Nancy invites us to go deeper to encounter the blessed embrace of Divine Love that meets us in darkness, and leads us toward the dawn.

I’ve been reading the magnificent talk by Sister Nancy Schreck and it is indeed a most powerful talk of great spiritual insight, explaining in the most cogent form that I have yet seen why the LCWR is standing firm in their way of being Church against the calls from the Vatican to change.
