Sisters from around the world reflect on a synodal vision for the Church and engage in a contemplative dialogue on the emerging future of religious life.

The story of religious life over the centuries displays two enduring qualities: constancy and change. God’s love is constant, as is the changing state of the human condition lived on Earth, our common home. Each generation of religious is faced with reading the signs of the times to faithfully navigate the intersection of constancy and change But what are we to do in this time of renewal? In Reseeding Religious Life through Global Sisterhood, sisters from around the world reflect on a synodal vision and engage in a contemplative dialogue on the emerging future of religious life.

In this hopeful volume, sisters share perspectives on their rich heritage while continuing to till the soil of religious life with their encounters, transforming and deepening their charismatic identity with each conversation. Through this process, readers may come to understand how tending to the wounds of the poor and the planet becomes an awakening to embracing the intersection of the ecologies; social, economic, environmental, political, cultural, and spiritual. Reseeding Religious Life through the Global Sisterhood challenges all who dwell in faithfulness to God to a charismatic synodality: one that reveals the unfolding narrative of all our interconnections, calls us to nurture the conversations that will energize our distinct charisms, and inspires the flourishing of an emerging global sisterhood.
