The Time Is Now: A Call to Uncommon Courage by Joan Chittister

Sister Joan continues to share her fire with readers. This little book is about prophetic spirituality. Joan claims there are prophets walking among us, persons who show us ways to be mindful, compassionate and willing to speak up for minorities, for women, for children and underprivileged people.

News from Visitation Province (Canada)

With Gratitude

Dear friends, we are connected because four hundred years ago a child named Marguerite Bourgeoys came into the world. I have been blessed to be a Visitation Province coordinator for four years. In that time I have worked with wonderful coordinators, associates and sisters within our province and beyond. No matter where the road led I was always made welcome and lived many Visitation moments. Connected by our shared charism and mission our time together fed my fire and reinforced my belief that Associate Relation-ship is a gift to our world. You have supported me with prayer throughout these years: in illness, health, and the everyday unfolding of our lives. Thank you Marjorie for surprising me with a “Gratitude newsletter’; what a beautiful souvenir! To everyone who contributed, sent e-mails and cards - know your words touched me deeply. I ask for your prayers as I begin my new role within the Congregation. Holding you close to my heart and in my prayers.

In the spirit of Marguerite,

Anna Rowley
