Welcome Spring!

Time to wake up the blog! It’s been dormant while I’ve let myself seem too busy – first as a college professor and, since August, as vocation minister for our community.  I never stopped writing — the student newspaper at our college, The Cable, offered me the chance to write a weekly column.  For the first year, I wrote “Ask a Sister”  but switched to Visum Monachae when I took on a broader range of topics. As I wake up this blog, I’m re-christening it with the same title.

What does Visum Monachae mean?  A literal translation would be “Vision or view of a female monastic.” (See why I chose the Latin?) I’ve always written on a variety of topics, and will continue.  But I will focus more on the “monacha” aspect — the place where the Benedictine monastic tradition meets up with the issues and events of the world, with cultural and arts events, with peoples and places.

If you’ve been a reader for a long time, I’m grateful that you’re still here.  If you’ve come across the blog as it re-awakens: welcome.
