Address Service g~luested By Judith Weaver PARIS CORRESPONDENT 'Tour membership mirrors the pattem of the early Church," Abbot Jerome Kodell, OSB, told 100 members of the Diocesan Council of Women Religious during the day of enrichment Feb. 28 at St. Vincent Infirmary Medical Center in Little Rock. Abbot Jerome Kodell of Subiaco Ab- bey was the keynote speaker for the event, called "Springtime of Hope." "In the early Church, Peter, Paul, Barnabas and other disciples worked independently to spread the gospel," Abbot Jerome said. 'at was a time of great creativity, dependent on faith. "the Biblical account of the transfigu- ration of Christ offers an icon for today's religious, who are driven by the religious experience of their past that keeps hay- hag to be owned. St. Luke's gospel tells us Jesus was in deep prayer when his il- lumination experience occurred. Persons of prayer will also reflect a deep inner experience of God to the world by their ministry." The abbot applied St. Gregory of Nyssa's comment about St. Paul to reli- gious today, who, though "not knowing the way they are going can take this as a sign they are going the right way." The sisters agreed and laughed heartily. Bishop Andrew J. McDonald cel- ebrated Mass for the sisters, commission- ing the new officers to serve the organi- zation. New officers are Sister Mary John Seyler, OSB, president; Sister Catherine Markey, OSB, vice president; and Sister Yvonne Lerner, OSB, treasurei'.

She and Sister Eileen Schneider, OSB, were coordinators of the day of enrichment, which was ha preparation for a year. Sisters discussed the responses to Wision-aire," a questionnaire on vari- ous aspects of contemporary religious life, which was sent to all members. Key sections of the questionnaire ad- dressed issues of community life, laity, founders, God, vocations, lifestyle and ministry. Dialogue on these issues re- vealed a hopeful attitude of the sisters toward the future of religious life, as . atl well as the reallsuc understanding i communities of the future will b smaller, i 'It is the commitment of the individU'[ als, not the numbers, that is most impr"! tant,' one sister said. t'[ Brother James Lindsey, OSB, Subiaco, told the group, "The past is!! n] , there "ce place to visit, but don t stay i , , The challenges and risks of the fttttn i call you."
