Franciscan Sisters of Perpetual Adoration (FSPA)

Modern Lives. Sacred Traditions.


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?

Crisis reveals goodness

Walking together — through life changers like discernment — takes courage and conviction but also generates power to shape the future.

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.

Mantle of grief

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

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.

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.

Thankfulness, flaming rolls and the illusion of perfection

Leaving your illusions at the door: who you are and why God calls you to discern religious life.

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?

Earthquakes: when ground is no longer solid

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

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.

Franciscan family reunions

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

Trailblazers and touchstones along the path

Who are the trailblazers in your life? Are you willing to go where God leads?
