Are You Called to be
Brother to the World?
their faith. They have taught me a
lot of things, vestiges of wisdom that
cannot be found in books or on the
internet. i have had the most amazing conversations with these men,
who never seem to run out of energy,
stories, ideas, and blazing charisma.
still and all, being a religious
brother is not an easy life, but it is a
life worth living and a vocation that
is worth giving a try. it is as exhilarating as surfing, but you have to choose
and dare yourself to take on the wave
of life no matter how big or small. so
i invite you: Take the plunge! =

Hermano para el Mundo?
When Mercy Sister Joan
Margret Schwager, R.S.M.
isn’t teaching in a classroom in Whitefish, Montana, you may find her on
slopes instructing 5- to
8-year-olds in the basics
of skiing. A friend who
works a ski resort asked
Schwager if she would
be interested in teaching
skiing. Now she coordinates instruction for about
40 young beginners each
season. “It’s fun,” says
Schwager, “and an opportunity for evangelization,
too, during the great chats
one has riding up and
down the ski lifts!”
