Product Overview

Following up her very popular book about the happiness of the contemplative life, A Right to be Merry, Mother Mary Francis tells the story of how a cloistered Poor Clare Community, wholly content to stay where it was, is called forth by God to go abroad and found five more contemplative communities. In her own charming way, she relates the story not only about the spiritual adventure of one contemplative nun, but also about the spread of the contemplative life from New Mexico to Holland.

Throughout the book she weaves spiritual themes about the call each person receives from God to venture forth into new revelations of himself made fully possible only by his consent to go beyond the confinements of his own life plan into the broader acres of God's unfolding designs.

Editorial Reviews

"Mother Mary Francis offers practical wisdom, from behind cloistered walls, to those of us whose lives are filled with the distractions of a frenetic world. She reminds us that many moments of life have the potential to lead us to holiness."
- Cardinal John O'Connor

"Penetrating insight into the spousal love and divine beauty that make up the heart of vowed contemplative life as a Poor Clare nun."
- Fr. Kenneth Baker, S.J.
