Sister Joan Chittister to appear on “Super Soul Sunday” with Oprah Winfrey (OWN)

Air date: Sunday, May 26, 11:00 a.m. ET/PT

In this episode of "Super Soul Sunday," Oprah Winfrey talks with author and activist Sister Joan Chittister to discuss her newest book, The Time Is Now: A Call For Uncommon Courage (Penguin Random House).

In a powerful conversation, Sister Joan defines what it means to be a prophet in today's modern world and challenges us to combat complacency and apathy in our own lives. She outlines the key steps we can all take to lift America (and the world) out of its current state of polarization and political disarray.

Rather than wait for others to solve the problems of inequality, injustice and poverty, Sister Joan explains why it is both our moral and spiritual responsibility to take action ourselves, and make the world a better place for all.

The segment will be available online at starting Monday, May 27.

Joan Chittister is a Benedictine Sisters of Erie, PA and an international lecturer and author of over 60 books. She is one of the best known writers on Benedictine spirituality and has been a courageous advocate of justice, especially for women, in both church and society for over 40 years.
