Item Description...
Overview
Contemporary religious life if just now emerging from a period following the Second Vatican Council that has been both blessed and burdensome. Its members continue to face some formidable and complex challenges if their congregations are to survive and flourish in the new millennium. The work that lies ahead will require open minds, a willingness to surrender divisive ideological points of view, and a great deal of sacrifice. This book invites those interested in the future of religious life in America to take another look at the signs of the times and derive hope from some of the positive elements to be found there: the growing number of religious men and women interested in committing themselves to an explicit life of prayer in welcoming communities dedicated to the proclamation of God's Word and to works of reconciliation and pe4ace aimed at transforming the world in which we life by engaging that world as to evangelize it. Their challenge? To reclaim the values that lie at that heart of their way of living the Gospel and to express them in new form. This book, while hardly a manual, is practical in nature: it offers a number of specific recommendations about what might be done to further the renewal of religious congregations in the U.S. The questions at the end of each chapter are meant to foster further discussion and, hopefully, action that will advance the cause of consecrated life and its future in America.
