Description

Born of Common Hungers celebrates the simplicity and complexity of six communities of Benedictine women. From Germany to England, across America and Brazil, each woman and community profiled has adapted to political, social, and cultural changes both local and global in order to be of practical and spiritual use. This book reveals that sisters have as much in common with lay women everywhere as they do with each other. Anything but isolated or stagnated, they are as dynamic today as through their long history.
