Global Sisters Report is 5 years old! To celebrate our anniversary, we've selected 25 of our most memorable stories, blogs and columns into a slideshow. We're mindful that each one reflects the decision by women to answer God's call in a particular way, to live as Catholic women religious in a prayer life, a shared life and a vowed life.
GSR Today - What began as an effort by National Catholic Reporter to write more stories about Catholic women religious is now an award-winning publication that has had more than 1.8 million visitors since its launch and an average of 60,000 monthly readers.
Notes from the Field - My favorite work at Missouri Health Care for All is collecting stories. I interview people, draft their stories, and then post them online. The stories can further expose the human impact of our health care crisis.
Notes from the Field - I have to recognize each time I ride in a private car or eat at an agency luncheon that this is part of my work. Mentally rebuffing them brings me no closer to realizing what it truly means to live in service of others.
Notes from the Field - I have found inspiration and guidance through the community of Loretto volunteers, co-members and vowed sisters, reminiscent of af Klint's relationships with her spirit guides and the Five.
Notes from the Field - Realizing that someone could see some part of my personal mission that I had not been able to identify myself is truly humbling and illuminating.
Notes from the Field – I was fortunate to attend the 63rd session of the United Nations' Commission on the Status of Women. I wondered, under an administration that systematically dictates the exclusion of people from certain countries, what qualifies me to participate in these conversations?
GSR Today - "We need to look as a nation to our obligations and reach out to help people — especially since we are a rich nation. The U.S. government is obliged to help people in desperate situations."
Notes from the Field - I've been reflecting on the stimuli that shape my headspace as we approach the 63rd U.N. Commission on the Status of Women, with its focus on public infrastructure.
Notes from the Field - My housemate Lindsey and I set out to pursue the promise of a free buffet dinner at the National Shrine of Our Lady of the Snows. On account of a modest stipend, we often go out of our way for free food, but what I found there became much more than that.
