Keeping Hope Alive in a Troubled World with Joyce Rupp, OSM

On Saturday evening, September 14, about 150 people gathered in Somers Lounge at the College of St. Scholastica to listen to Sister Joyce Rupp speak on Keeping Hope Alive in a Troubled World.

She said, “Hope is not just one single quality or promise. Hope has to do with believing beyond today – knowing there is a garden of beauty that awaits me. Hope encourages me to follow my dreams, to believe in the part of me that envisions my wholeness. Hope is trusting that what is happening will eventually make sense, or if it never does become more meaningful, it will still offer an opportunity for growth.

“Hope assures me each morning that my life is of value no matter how unsettling or disturbing my current situation is. Hope encourages my heart not to give up and nudges me when it is time to move on. … Hope tucks promises of growth inside the pockets of my struggles.”

This talk was the latest of our Benedictine Days events.  Watch the website of the Center for Spirituality and Enrichment for news of the next event. And register early: these fill up quickly.

“Listen carefully, my child, to your master's precepts, and incline the ear of your heart. Receive willingly and carry out effectively your loving father's advice, that by the labor of obedience you may return to Him from whom you had departed by the sloth of disobedience.”
