Item Description...
Overview
This is a groundbreaking work that speaks of reinventing religious life while still being faithful to the founder's spiritual goals. Guaranteed to provoke thoughtful discussion. The Beating of Great Wings is not only about recovering religious life, or renewing religious life, but also about rebuilding it or perhaps even reinventing it, setting it upon different, non-traditional foundation stones. In this ground-breaking work, Bernard Lee reflects on the nature of charism and what he calls the "deep story," the inheritance that members of a religious community receive from the founder or foundress. He emphasizes the need for giving Scripture and the Eucharist places of privilege in the community and suggests ways for doing so that help religious be more open to the presence of the Spirit. Father Lee also considers the topics of community-in-mission and vows-in-mission as other essential elements of active apostolic communities. This is a thought-provoking, must-have resource for all religious, especially those called to an active ministry in the service of the church.
