"In every situation, we have an opportunity to choose love over fear" ~ Sr. Carol Zinn
Sr. Carol Zinn , a Sister of St. Joseph of Philadelphia, became executive director of the Leadership Conference of Women Religious a year ago, just in time to oversee the process of LCWR examining how best to support religious life and what its role in that might be.
"Religious life is always from the culture and from the historical time it is in, so it's not surprising we're in a huge shift in what the life form looks like," Zinn said. "But we're also new to this in that most of us thought religious life would always be what it was. These kind of changes only happen every 350 to 400 years."
