Sister Simone will present on September 21, 2019 from 9 AM to 3 PM She will share her insights on the intersection of faith, contemplation, and doing justice.
As Sister Simone described her presentation. “Karl Rahner stated ‘in the future Christians will be contemplatives or they will not be at all.’ This conference will explore the contemplative practice and the resulting action that is required. Through examining Pope Francis’ writing we will explore the mandate for political engagement and the challenge to live 21st century holiness. Prayer is not a private practice, but rather one that impels us into action. Let us together explore the call to engage this chaotic and painful world.”
