Franciscan Sisters of Perpetual Adoration (FSPA)

Modern Lives. Sacred Traditions.

These are our own Meribah moments

How can the invitation to discern help you develop your own heart of flesh?

Temptation and transformation in the desert

God guides us to explore the depths of vocational discernment even in the most dreaded circumstances, with us as we confront the temptations that threaten our fidelity to live in communion with God.

Hearts and ashes

When desire to be of service is present, are we ready to love like Christ?

Discovery in discernment: breakthroughs of mind and heart

Like a scientific finding, discernment starts with a question.


Discipline and commitment in our hearts: not just in Lent but Advent and discernment too.

What did you say?

From novice to the common good: the language of discerning religious life.

"Yes" to God's invitation

Witness what it means to walk the Gospel-centered journey of life as a religious sister.

Diamonds in our midst

Commitment to prayer, service polishes their priceless lives.

A promise to build a new life upon

By choosing to distract ourselves from listening—particularly when we are called to rise to the potential already within us—we can hide from God.

Commitment doesn't emerge overnight

Are you ready to allow God--not a stagnant statue of your own creation--to be the form you follow?

Mary and our "Yes" to mystery

When we say "Yes" to vocation we—like Mary—must walk the road, learning as we go, trusting God is always there.

Sharing courage to walk in darkness and light

Does love want others to lose in order for someone to win?

World Day of Prayer for Consecrated Life

Will you be part of the next generation of consecrated life?

Service Saturday: mutuality at its core

Service and discernment: are you open to the idea that God co-creates with you the future?

Open eyes can change world views

What if your dream is the one the world needs now?

Resolutions and reflection in discernment

Trust—on the days you feel like you aren't measuring up to your discernment resolutions—in the power of prayer.

Awake and ready in discernment?

Discernment: How you wait is just as important as the waiting.

Trying on your metaphorical lenses

Religious discernment: scrutinizing, eliminating and finding the right fit.


Running from silence: when we plug in are we silencing God?

Blisters, discipline, perseverance and joy

Olympics and religious discernment: to win not a gold medal but a relationship with God, you don't have to be a skilled athlete of prayer.

Doorways to celebration

Crossing 800 and 138-year-old thresholds to love, acceptance and forgiveness.

Peace in the midst of unrest

Discerning in a hurting world: when our faith asks us, in difficult times, to look again.

Franciscan family reunions

Are you called to join a family of Franciscans working in service of the Gospel?

Use words when necessary

Words, vows, renewing commitment: what does your life call you to today?

Seeing discernent from new heights

Ask yourself: are you seeing discernment from new heights? A different point of view?
