Exploring Mystical Wisdom

As the LCWR membership grows in its diversity of cultures and ages, this assembly drew on the richness of some of the traditions and perspectives alive within the conference. Set in a context of a series of spiritual conversations, the assembly provided input into the mystical wisdom available to us and helped us to recognize, share, and celebrate the wisdom we each carry within ourselves. Participants explored how might we deepen our access to the wisdom that surrounds us so that we may amplify it and bring it to the tables at which we sit and the many circles with which we interact. The fate of the world – with its multiple challenges – is calling for us to respond to this urgent need with these precise gifts that women religious possess.
