Setting moon, rising sun

Was it a childhood fantasy or the beginning of a call, wonders Sister Linda Romey as she writes about an early life experience in her latest essay at Global Sisters Report. And, what if she were a millennial today—where would she turn to satisfy the longing in her heart? Yes, women are still called today. How do we help them follow their passion in creative ways? Linda shares some ideas to explore from Diarmiud O’Murchu’s new book, Religious Live in the 21st Century: The Prospect of Refounding and Benedictine Laura Swan’s book, The Wisdom of the Beguines, The Forgotten Story of a Medieval Women’s Movement.
