One of the best things to happenÂ to my spiritual life in the last two years has been getting involved with Blessed Is She. Â If you aren’t familiar with it, it’s a website — that’s a totally inadequate term; it’s really more of a gathering space and sisterhood — for Catholic women to grow in faith. Â It features daily reflections on the Mass readings, online workshops, and materials for small group studies, among all sorts of other wonderful things.
And it’s just launching a brand-new study guide called Blessed Conversations.
Blessed Conversations is a seven-part series for use in small groups — anywhere from two women on upÂ — to reflect on key aspects of the Catechism. Â You can do the whole seven parts or any one of them.
My contribution to the project was writingÂ the guideÂ on the sacraments. Â It — like each of the guides — features excerpts from the Catechism, related Scripture verses, a personal reflection on the sacrament, and questions for group discussion. Â It’s also gorgeously designed (by the enormously giftedÂ Erica Tighe) and is available for purchase as a download on the BIS site.
If this study guide (or any of the things BIS offers) tugs on your soul, check out the website. Â If you’ve ever thought of gettingÂ a few ladies together Â and sharingÂ your spiritual journeys, the Blessed Conversations just might be the place to begin.
