Pope Francis composed a magnificent book called The Joy of the Gospel. He could write it for one reason. He experienced that joy. In hours of prayer. Each morning. Each week. During every one of his 46 years in religious life. So it is with our Sisters who are celebrating jubilee years and whom we profile in this issue of Cross Currents. Through their 50, 60, 70 and 80 years in religious life, each morning, each week and each year they have met and spent time with the God of abundance and overflowing love. As you see their photos and read their comments, we invite you to pause and savor the deep and abiding joy Jesus came to bring to us. All of us.
