One of the best things to happen to my spiritual life in the last two years has been getting involved with Blessed Is She. 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. 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 up — to reflect on key aspects of the Catechism. You can do the whole seven parts or any one of them.
My contribution to the project was writing the guide on the sacraments. 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. It’s also gorgeously designed (by the enormously gifted 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. If you’ve ever thought of getting a few ladies together and sharing your spiritual journeys, the Blessed Conversations just might be the place to begin.
