Mother Maria Skobtsova (1891-1945), a Russian Orthodox nun, and Catherine Doherty (1896-1985), a Russian-born baroness, both lived lives of radical hospitality; wrote profound spiritual reflections on love, God, and the human person; and held the conviction of sobornost, a deep experience of collective humanity. Each in her own way ushered in a new kind of Christian monasticism—Skobtsova in Paris and Doherty in North America.
During these reflection times, explore the Russian spiritual concepts of poustinia (spiritual hermitage) and sobornost and reflect on your response to the invitation to see God unconditionally in your neighbor.
