In the Heart of the Temple: My Spiritual Vision for Today's World
Sister Joan has provided anyone who is a sincere seeker of the Truth (God, Supreme Being, etc.) a unique opportunity to reflect on his/her spiritual journey through this dimension. Her vision transcends her orthodox Roman Catholic background to include anyone and everyone who believes that all humans are created through the incomprehensible goodness of the Creating Force, the Force which sustains us and leads us to be our best selves in this world and to view each and every creature as a unique expression of that Love which surpasses human understanding.
