In these polarized times, a group of Sisters published a book called, "However Long the Night." It tells of a time -- 2009 to 2015 -- when the Vatican Office investigated the Leadership Conference of Women Religious, an organization that boasts 60,000 Catholic Sisters.
It was a challenging and hurtful time for Sisters, which became a sacred time. This is the story of those women who wanted to share those experiences -- including our own Sister of St. Dominic, Mary Hughes, OP. The lessons they learned were brought to light through their prayerful and hope-filled traditions. These practices can serve as a light to anyone in conflict today. Available on Amazon.
