Between Heaven and Earth: The Call to Religious Life

The Way Autumn issue

The Way Review of Christian Spirituality, a journal of the Jesuits in Britain, has published an article by Sr Teresa White fcJ on religious life today in its October 2022 issue

Cardinal Michael Czerney has published some reflections on Pope Francis’ encyclical Fratelli Tutti and its special significance for religious life (see the online Jesuit journal Thinking Faith). In the light of  them, Teresa argues that religious life is founded upon a dynamic responsiveness to God that creates the conditions for the perennial relevance of the religious vocation and points forward to its future evolution.
