“My mission is to remain in Christ and to reveal him everywhere,” writes Catholic author, speaker, and teacher Mary Sharon Moore.
And how does she express this mission in everyday life? Conformed to Christ offers moving insight into St. Paul’s words: “I live, no longer I, but Christ in me.”
These 40-plus gemlike essays draw the reader into the conversation between faith and life as it is lived in the day-to-day—but with eyes and heart and mind wide open to the workings of the Holy Spirit. Mary Sharon’s capacity to notice and name the particulars helps us to do the same. These essays first appeared in Mary Sharon’s long-running monthly column in the Southwest Kansas Catholic.
One reader comments: “I am reading something I could have written! Conformed to Christ is a complete verification of what I’ve been through.”
Mary Sharon’s background includes as master’s degree in theological studies from the Franciscan School of Theology in Berkeley, California, and deep immersion in liturgical spirituality and charism and vocational discernment.
Her work is rooted in the rhythms of dying and receiving new life which define Jesus’ redemptive work, rhythms which lie at the heart of Christian sacramental life and human experience. Her work awakens people of Christian faith to the power of their anointing.
