Re-imagining the future: The Spirituality and the Charism can help Religious Life to be more generative in this time

Covid19. Re-imagining the future:
The Spirituality and the Charism can help Religious Life to be more generative in this time.

Spirituality is either generative or it is not. All spirituality, in this sense, is a source of life and care. When we speak of “generativity” or “creativity” or “innovation,” where do our desires point? It seems to me that it has to do with generating a new way of situating ourselves, assuming a new lifestyle that cares for the earth and for our brothers and sisters, and, finally, a life at the service to our world with the charismatic mission received.
