Sister Joan Chittister is Heroic

“It was a sense of Divine Light in all things that kept the Jewish convert Edith Stein strong in the face of death at the hands of the Nazis; and Joan of Arc unyielding to the churchmen who condemned her for following her conscience rather than being obedient to them; and Galileo faithful even in the midst of rejection by a church intent on smothering modern science in the name of faith; and Dorothy Day implacable in her pursuit of peace in a country that called her “communist” for doing it.

Spiritual leaders like these remember what so many of us far too often forget:

Christians are not people of the cross. Christians are people of the empty tomb, the ones who know that every step on the way to the Light is Light.”___Sister Joan Chittister
