LCWR presents a new 2020 reflection book, You Will Have Light for Your First Steps. This collection of reflections written by more than 40 LCWR members builds on a line from the poem “Trasna” by Raphael Considine, PBVM. The poem challenges us to view this historic moment in religious life as a crossing place – a place where we come to the end of what we have always known and move forward toward something that will be quite different from what we may have ever imagined.
In their reflections, the writers share their experiences of crossroads, of following their heart’s longing, of stepping into the dark, and of trusting the lead of their inner knowing. Artwork by Catholic sisters, as well as questions and suggestions for deepening the reader’s own prayer, accompany the reflections.
The cost of each book is $6.00, plus shipping and handling. Discounted prices are available for orders larger than 10 copies. Revenue from this LCWR project helps defray the costs of the resources and programs the conference provides its members.
