Newsletters


The Monastic Way

The Monastic Way is a monthly PAID subscription containing daily reflections by Sister Joan. It is available as a mailed print subscription or an online only subscription.

“To be able to look at something and imagine how to do it differently is the gift that frees the soul,” writes Joan Chittister. The 2017 The Monastic Way collection is about freeing the soul.

The insights of Joan Chittister, the words of Scripture and the bold and multifaceted art of our 2017 artist Ansgar Holmberg give you a new opportunity each month to see, think and construct your world differently—to discover how God dwells among us in surprising forms.
