I really appreciated listening to an interview with Catholic Nun and prolific author Sister Joan Chittister on Radio National (Australia) programe, The Spirit of Things. Here’s the promo for the show:
“America's most outspoken Catholic nun, Sr Joan Chittister, breaks down the high walls of the monastery in her extended poem, The Monastery of the Heart.
She invites us to 'stop the noise within' and consider a relationship to God which opens to the self and is a bridge to the world. Based on the Rule of Benedict, Chittister's testament is full of wise counsel and spiritual direction that speaks to people of all traditions and none.
Yet Sr Joan's role as a leading figure in the Roman Catholic Church's women religious in America, has also put her in the line of fire, which she addresses in this extended interview and reading from her home in Erie Country, Pennsylvania.”
