tracing the hidden streams

I spent this morning as part of conversation between different forms of religious community and rule of life in Church of England Birmingham.  As you can imagine, this was exceptionally rich.  I, for one, owe a huge debt of gratitude to the religious communities which have nourished me and helped to form me, not least as a Priest Associate of the Community of the Sisters of the Love of God, and with the Companions of the Society of St Francis (as well as my friends in Carmel).

Sister Anna O’Connor, the Episcopal Vicar for Religious in the Archdiocese, led some reflections for us.  I am living off some of the insights, especially from Pope Francis’ Apostolic Letter to all Consecrated People:

look to the past with gratitude

look to the present with passion

look to the future with hope
