Here is a quilted piece only hinted at almost a year ago. It was made at the request of the eastern region of the Association of Contemplative Sisters. The intended use was as a prayer shawl to be draped around the shoulders of a newly elected president or to envelop with warmth a member in need of healing and being prayed over by her sisters.
The organization provides mutual support to members who share pursuit of the contemplative way, both vowed religious and lay woman married or single, as well hermits, in a wide variety of locales, cultures and life styles. For those lacking a like minded group nearby, ACS conquers distances and provides members with a sense of community which offers encouragement for the spiritual journey.
