We Americans reject misogyny, repudiate social inequality, condemn exploitation and abuse of human persons, and abhor bigotry in all its malevolent forms. At the same time, we find ourselves living through experiences of religious, cultural, and social fracture; indeed, Carmelite theologian Constance FitzGerald has named our experience as one of ‘societal impasse.’ This presentation probes the challenge impasse presents and considers contemporary spiritual practices for living out the call to Christian discipleship. 

The Mary Milligan, R.S.H.M. Endowed Lecture in Spirituality, hosted by Loyola Marymount University’s Department of Theological Studies, honors the memory of Mary Milligan, R.S.H.M., who served as professor of Theological Studies, provost and dean at Loyola Marymount University.  The lecture was established to create a forum for critical reflection on spirituality in service to the Church, the academy and the world and in keeping with the charism of the R.S.H. M. community – “that all may have life and have it to the full.”
