Franciscan Sisters of Perpetual Adoration (FSPA)

Modern Lives. Sacred Traditions.


Mary, Clare, a novice and an associate: discerning pathways to God

Where do these pioneers, blazing their own paths to religious life, inspire you to go?

Discerning Religious Life? Consider the power of a good question…

We learn by asking questions…lots and lots of questions. 

When someone wants to learn more about membership with our congregation, we receive and answer some common questions time and again. And, to help answer those, we've created a reflection guide (learn more and reserve your copy!) ... 

Hearts and ashes

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

Beacons of hope

Spiritual blisters: symbols of joy discovered in risking the journey.

A transformative moment

In discernment, abundance is recognizing that God provides more than we could ever consume.

Discernment: clothed in your own uniqueness

Call to mind the boldness of wearing orange when the world encourages you to blend in.

Discerning, igniting a revolution of peace

What would happen if we woke up and fostered peace and positivity instead of hate and greed?

Viewing relationships in a discernment eclipse

What happens when parents, friends experience their own moments of obscurity in your discernment?

Sister Katie: ordinary day, invitation to pray

Intimacy with God is not separate from day-to-day life.

"Yes" to God's invitation

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

Where are we going?

Road of discernment: your gifts and talents may be precious fuel for propelling us into the future.

Distraction

What are you finding within the diversion of distraction in discernment?

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.

Freezing and thawing: potholes surfacing in discernment

Jesus showed us how to navigate potholes in discernment.

World Day of Prayer for Consecrated Life

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

Transforming the power of snow

Is it snowing in your world of discernment?

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.

Following the light

Discernment: following the light of daily reflection

Trying on your metaphorical lenses

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

Praying through the storms of the heart

Are external sources determining your interior disposition in discernment?

Doorways to celebration

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

Franciscan family reunions

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

A jubilant life

The jubilee of your life: is discernment leading you to enjoy it rather than endure it?

Use words when necessary

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