JOAN CHITTISTER ESSENTIAL WRITINGS
Ideas in Passing
from Joan Chittister
Joan Chittister Essential
Writing
s: This volume, more than
any other, captures and distills
Chittister's spirit and her message
for women and men
today--including reflections on
her own journey, why she
remains in the church, and what
sustains her faith and hope.
Enthusiasm for life
Some things in life are simply too exciting
to ignore. They come when we least
expect them. They explode into the middle
of the mundane and race through our veins
faster than our hearts can handle the
pressure of them. They leave us in a kind of
spiritual shock, a sort of spiritual numbness.

The conversation we doubted we’d ever
have is about to happen. The letter we
thought would never come arrives. The
opportunity we never dreamed would be
offered to us is now, unexpectedly, within
reach.

“Until one has loved an animal, a part of
one's soul remains unawakened,” wrote
Anatole France. It is in this spirit that Joan
Chittister has written a prayer to honor
the presence of animals in our lives.

Whether you have a special pet, wish you
had a pet, love animals or simply love
someone who loves animals, this new
prayer by Sister Joan breaks open the
often extraordinary bond between pets
and people.
