LCWR Assembly 2016: Leading from the Allure of Holy Mystery, Contemplation and Transformation

Pat Farrell2016 Assembly of the Leadership Conference of Women Religious

Leading from the Allure of Holy Mystery: Contemplation and Transformation

Sr. Pat Farrell, OSF

At the communal level women religious are being invited to enter the spaciousness of contemplative processes together. The circumstances of our congregational lives have been leading us. Our future is uncertain. We can only create it together and there is urgent need to be able to sense what is emerging in the group. Communal discernment of some kind has always been part of the dynamic of religious life but there is a new urgency now to deepen our capacity to hear and follow the guidance of collective wisdom. The learnings and processes arising from within congregations and through LCWR are both a gift given to us and a call. The future is drawing us beyond the personal toward communal transformation.
