Franciscan Sisters of Perpetual Adoration (FSPA)

Modern Lives. Sacred Traditions.


Action vs. contemplation in discernment?

Active vs. contemplative discernment: visiting communities and meeting sisters equally essential as praying for wisdom and direction.

Life as a nun today: FSPA can relate

FSPA: living modern lives, sacred traditions.

"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.

Mantle of grief

Easter alleluias always come: God will not abandon you on your discernment journey.

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.

Kindness: we are all called to be Esther

On the Lenten road of kindness and spiritual growth, Esther is a model for discerners.

Love beyond measure

Love: it's also what discernment—and religious life—are all about.

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?

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.

Advent light and joy: the vocation that may shine from deep inside you

The searing questions we hear on the lips of Jesus are held in tension with this sense of Advent joy.

The hope and conversion in Christmas

The clear invitation of the Advent season: amidst the work make way for hope in our hearts, hope in discernment.

Awake and ready in discernment?

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

Following Francis: the margins may be closer than you think

Searching and serving--every day--those on the periphery.

Unplugged

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

Earthquakes: when ground is no longer solid

Discerning through the dust of spiritual earthquakes: a readiness and responsiveness to what becomes unearthed.

Jesus under wraps

Would your life be different if Jesus and your relationship and your beliefs were unwrapped?

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?
