Women Of Providence in Collaboration

Providence & Compassion

Providence & Compassion
$14.65

Within this new and inspiring publication, nine Women of Providence share their understanding of Providence and Compassion through the lens of their lived experience in ministry and community life. These shared personal reflections will expand awareness and appreciation of the intimate link between Providence and Compassion in the lives of not only the author but also within the life of the reader. Compassion has been personified in Jesus and his ministries, and is central to the charism of Providence women wherever they minister.

 

 

 

You will see how Providence and Compassion are expressed in diverse ministries. You also can discover similarities with your own living and ministry experiences as well as gain new insights from each author. Questions for personal and communal reflection are included with each essay. This 58-page collection on providence theology and spirituality is a good resource to use with people in formation, in local houses, our providence retreat centers, bookstores in our sponsored colleges and universities, mission departments in our healthcare facilities, and for personal growth and reflection.

Providence and Peace: Connecting and Co-Creating for Justice
$15.00

“Providence and Peace: Connecting and Co-Creating for Justice” is the second in a series featuring authors who look at specific topics through the lens of Providence and their lived experience in ministry and community life.

In this publication, we experience various perspectives on the connections between Providence and peace and how they are interwoven. In addition to two of our Providence Sisters, this publication includes the insights of one lay man and two lay women from different backgrounds and experiences. It is rich in history as well as current lived experiences, and certainly comes at a time when our world, our environment, our own ordinary lives are surrounded by chaos and turmoil and in much need of peace.

The authors who have contributed to Providence and Peace have gifted us not only with their insights into peace; they have also shown us that Providence is an evolutionary process and continues to grow in each of us.This publication invites us to ponder and reflect on how we live Providence and peace in our lives, and how we witness HOPE that Providence and peace are alive among us.

The Women of Providence in Collaboration is excited to present their new book, Providence Alive in Us: Ever Unfolding Mystery. This book is designed to promote and broaden the understanding of Providence theology and spirituality and how, over the years, it has affected our lives. The authors, some of whom are previous contributors to other Providence published books, will lead us in this search for still deeper engagement with Ever Unfolding Mystery. The authors of this book are Providence women from five of the thirteen member congregations of the Women of Providence in Collaboration. Marie McCarthy, SP and Anji Fan, SP are from the St. Mary-of-the-Woods in Terre Haute, IN; Ruth McGoldrick, SP is from the Sisters of Providence in Holyoke, MA; Michele Bisbey and Myra Rodgers are CDPs from the Allison Park, PA, Sisters of Divine Providence; Alba Letelier, SP, Hong Nga Nguyen, SP and Annette Suebert, SP all belong to the Sisters of Providence who began in Montreal, Quebec, Canada and spread throughout the United States.

 

New contributors, as well as four reflections devoted to intercultural voices and experiences, also take us inside ourselves to probe deeper meanings of abundance, expansion of partnership with God in the very action of transforming our world, and the challenges of being the face of Providence within a different culture and in different settings. Truly this work will provide much food for thought as to how each of us lives the charism of Providence in the world today.
