Mindfulness, a Wolf Disguised as a Lamb

It has become even more frequent to go into a school gym and see students in the lotus flower position, or lying on a tatami mat with their eyes closed and with silly smiles on their faces practicing mindfulness.

A Carmelite Vocation Saved by Sr. Clare

Sr. Magdalena Guadalupe of the Most Holy Trinity is a Discalced Carmelite. She writes to us from Mexico with a very impressive testimony in which she explains how discovering Sr. Clare has transformed and healed her way of living her religious life. Although she had recently begun, she was going downhill, tied down by many things that were impeding her to give herself completely to Christ. Sr. Magdalena Guadalupe wanted to share her testimony with us and is aware that it can greatly help others who, like her, are going through a time of darkness and confusion. She wants everyone to know, “that there are people interceding for us, and, in my case, it was the dearly loved Sister Clare.”

Man is not a product of his historical circumstances and social environment. Or at least he should not be. Sometimes, sadly, he is. When he exerts his intelligence to respond creatively to the situation in which he finds himself, then he retains his personality and makes a contribution. When he fails to do this, he elects to “go with the flow” like deadwood floating downstream. It cannot be denied that Sr. Clare was shaped by her environment, but she was not defined by it.

Changing Tracks: Sr. Megan Conway, S.H.M.

Sr. Megan´s parents did all that they could to bring her and her siblings up in the faith. She received a Catholic education at home and at school. Sr. Megan went to a "Catholic-by-name" college. Everything seemed to be going well -- she got good grades and was playing soccer. She resisted the party scene... at first. But the peer pressure from her soccer team won her over in the end and brought her down so far that she nearly lost her faith. She decided to transfer schools, but her party scene lifestyle wasn´t so easy to shake. It wasn't until she met a "hippy" in her Theology class that things finally started to change for Sr. Megan
