AS120 Ask Sister – Jesuit sisters and nuns?, rediscovering Ignatian roots, riding the prayer roller coaster

  • Are there religious orders of women that apply Ignatian spirituality in their formation?
  • What is the historical connection between the Sisters of Saint Joseph and Ignatian spirituality?
  • Why is it we don’t have control over our feelings? I may wake up in high spirits to pray, and then all of a sudden I don’t feel like it, and it becomes extremely difficult to pray.

A Litany of Saints

A favorite IHM custom of mine is the prayers of the faithful during Mass during which time we remember by name our sisters who have died on or near that day. The name of the sister is read along with the year that she died. This custom reflects a profound sense that are sisters who have died are still truly with us albeit in a new way. As an IHM community, we trust in their love and prayers as we continue God’s mission as IHM sisters.
