Franciscan Sisters of Perpetual Adoration (FSPA)

Modern Lives. Sacred Traditions.


Hearts and ashes

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

It's where I pray

In a chair, near a window, Sister Maris prays and receives stability, change and connection.

Pray as you pray

Silent, spoken, individual, communal, mindful: Sister Clarone reflects on fruitful paths to prayer.

Discovery in discernment: breakthroughs of mind and heart

Like a scientific finding, discernment starts with a question.

Journey of Advent

How is your discernment part of the pilgrimage experience? Are you willing to enter the passage?

Sister Ronalda: I need to live and love

Her "heart in the middle of my being" is vital to Sister Ronalda.

Sister Sue: nature is prayer

Creation, says Sister Sue, is a small footprint of God's capacity.

Sister Antona: comfort, joy and security in prayer

"I thank God daily," says Sister Antona, "for His companionship and love."

Sister Anita: the soul searching question

Calling through quiet to her innermost spirit and that of God, and listening "to find the courage and RESPOND" is, for Sister Anita, prayer. 

Sister Rita Mae: painting as prayer

Sister Rita Mae Fischer finds sanctuary, centering, connection and courage in the heartache of death through painting.

Discerning, igniting a revolution of peace

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

Sister Karolyne: God's sacred creation in morning and evening prayer

Simple and natural and wonderful, the astronomical gifts of all creation call Sister Karolyne twice daily to most profound prayer. 

Sister Jean: Praying

Movement ... mindfulness ... self ... love ... presence: Sister Jean's Franciscan Way.

Sister Lucy Ann: expression of my time with Jesus

Poetry as prayer: Sister Lucy Ann is "experiencing deep and profound insights about who I am and how to live more fully into the mysteries of life."

Viewing relationships in a discernment eclipse

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

Obituaries and celebrating St. Clare

Your obituary: will it speak to your courage, service, voice, gifts?

"Yes" to God's invitation

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

Celebrating religious life renewed, perpetually professed

Sisters Kristin and Laurie celebrate religious vows: rejoice and pray with us!

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.

Following the light

Discernment: following the light of daily reflection

Documenting discernment

Journaling by hand or tweeting by phone: are you documenting your discernment?

Unplugged

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

Peace in the midst of unrest

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

Stop. Look up.

Allow beauty to seep into your soul ... reflect on things bigger than ourselves.
