Our Holy Yearnings: Life Lessons For Becoming Our Truest Selves
A look at the daily struggle between the imperfect and the divine. This newest treasury of Joan’s wisdom explores how God calls each of us to become fully alive. Here she reflects on the myth of perfection, our need for failure, the power of true humility, reverence for the created world and the search for God. “When God is the ‘monos,’ the only goal of our lives,” she says, “we are living a ‘monastic’ life, whatever the shape—married, single, or religious—the monastery of my own particular soul-life may be.” This is Joan Chittister at her finest—brilliant, brave and deeply mindful of the infinite possibilities that exist in each of us.
