This newest treasury of Joan’s wisdom explores
how God calls each of us to become fully alive.
Here she reflects on the myth of perfection, our
need for failure, the power of true humility,
reverence for the created world, and the
search for God. “When God is the ‘monos,’ the
only goal of our lives,” she says, “we are living a
‘monastic’ life, whatever the shape—married,
single, or religious—the monastery of my
own particular soul-life may be.” This is Joan Chittister at her
finest—brilliant, brave, and deeply mindful of the infinite
possibilities that exist in each of us.
