Let prayer change you. Do something:
Read a book about the life of a modern day saint�Dorothy Day, Martin Luther King, Jr., Caesar Chavez, for example.
The Pope has canonized 464 people during his pontificate and he can’t even get one on their short list for modern saints.
They also have retreats that let you “Walk and dance our outdoor labyrinth in celebration of summer days” also “contemplative walking” and “movement prayer.” I wonder if I can do contemplative walking on my treadmill, that would kill two birds with one stone.
Then I read that Joan Chittister, OSB was part of this community and it all fit into place. Previously she was going to attend a Women’s Ordination Conference in Dublin, Ireland and the Vatican wrote her superior to keep Sister Joan at Home. The prioress refused the Vatican’s request and wrote a letter back to them. All but one nun in the community signed the letter. The superior’s statement explaining her reasons for disobeying the Vatican is a most extraordinary document. It was “out of the Benedictine tradition of obedience,” she says, that she formed her decision. Sister Christine Vladimiroff is still the prioress of this community.
