As a practicing doctor in psychology she will bring a unique and professional element to the task of as a Board member. During the 4 years which I have been associated with the DC Chapter of the Affiliates, her consistent guidance keep us on tract, and help focus the meetings on current socially action issues both international and local. Her personality and personal experiences always was with a positive expression allowing each to express their full thoughts (even though we (I) would go on a bit passionately.) She is able to help all realize our unconscious prejudices while still remaining a prayful group.

 I went to her website and have copied a few sentences from there (I'm hoping you'll give an OK on this Roxanne).  I think it gives a hint of how she has blended academic training and skills with a commitment to those  To see more go to: http://www.drhugheswheatland.com/about/

Dear Friends,

It is always heartening to attend a conference, such as the American Academy of Religion which convened in Boston before Thanksgiving, and receive such affirmation from visitors to our booth. A typical comment: “I just love Orbis Books!” Part of the reason, no doubt, is that our program has such a clear and identifiable mission. In this era that mission is defined on the one hand by Pope Francis—with his call for mercy, care for the earth, and the defense of the poor—and on the other hand by President Trump, with his contempt for those on the margins, his disdain for the earth, and his glorification of wealth and power.
In the first case, we have published such books as Pope Francis’s The Works of Mercy, Cardinal Chito Tagle’s memoir, I Have Learned from the Least, and Martin McGee’s Dialogue of the Heart: Christian-Muslim Stories of Encounter. On the other hand, there are titles like The Problem of Wealth: A Christian Response to a Culture of Affluence by Elizabeth Hinson-Hasty, The Sin of White Supremacy by Jeannine Hill-Fletcher, and of course Faith and Resistance in the Age of Trump—all of them bestsellers in Boston, with the last the subject of two sessions at the AAR.

Yet the Orbis program is not primarily defined by what we oppose! In every copy of every Orbis book you’ll find our mission statement: to publish books that “enlighten the mind, nourish the spirit, and challenge the conscience.” In that light, leading titles this year have included anthologies of bestselling spiritual writers James Martin and Joyce Rupp, and Peter Phan’s celebration of The Joy of Religious Pluralism, as well as Heidi Russell’s engaging reflections on the Trinity, The Source of All Love, and the latest volume of Pope Francis’s Morning Homilies.

But perhaps you are seeking more specific advice for your Christmas shopping? Here are some suggestions: In the end, the spirit of this season is not determined by the gifts we exchange or whether we say “Merry Christmas.” In this season we remember the Prince of Peace, born with the smell of the sheep, who came to bring good news to the poor and to scatter the proud in the conceit of their hearts.

Blessings,

Robert Ellsberg

Jean and I spent ten weeks in Asia earlier this year. Initially we were in Japan for a week and then went on to Bangkok, Thailand for six weeks where we taught English to Buddhist monks in a program sponsored by Maryknoll. During our last three weeks we toured China. It was a wonderful opportunity to experience worlds very different from our own in the US. Below is a slide show we hope you enjoy

The Western Regional Conference was held in Las Vegas, Nevada, over Labor Day Weekend. Mary Ryan-Hotchkiss wrote:

Affiliates from 13 chapters gathered in arid Las Vegas, Nevada, for the Western Region Maryknoll Affiliate Conference to contemplate Water as Sanctifier and Quencher. Inside a sumptuous casino/resort we drank from metal water bottles bearing the Affiliate logo, while outdoor temperatures over the Labor Day Weekend soared to nearly 100 degrees. Indoors we heard the biblical treatment of water and of current water issues around the world. Sr. Rose Marie Cecchini M.M. told of the poisoning of aquifers by uranium mining on the Native People's lands near Gallup NM where she now works. A video,”Water For All” and our prayer and discussions motivated us to be better informed and to affirm the resolution that “Every Friday Maryknoll Affiliates will make special efforts to be aware of and to conserve water to be in solidarity with those suffering a lack of water.”

Sisters Centennial Reflections Archive

Beginning January 6, 2010, the Feast of the Maryknoll Sister's 99th Anniversary of Foundation, the Maryknoll Sisters will share twenty-four reflections. These reflections will come out in the early days of each month of 2011 and 2012, as they look forward to, and then realize the various celebrations of the Maryknoll Sisters Centennial!

These writings can be used individually or in a group, on reflection days or at any other time. The Sisters write, "May they serve to bring all of us to a greater depth of understanding and love of the wonderful legacy that is ours!"
