For the second year, NCR is bringing our readers a four-part series of conversations on spirituality during the Lenten season.
In this final and Easter Monday conversation, Soul Seeing for Lent host Michael Leach speaks with Franciscan Sr. Ilia Delio, the Josephine C. Connelly Endowed Chair in Theology at Villanova University, about finding God in everything and balancing spirituality and science.
In her Soul Seeing for Lent column, Delio invites us to see the invisible in the visible, to notice and celebrate every miracle of life, whether a tiny twig, a small flower, or a burly human, because everything is bursting with divine life.
You can find more of Delio's work at Global Sisters Report.
Soul Seeing, which is edited by Leach, is a regular NCR column focused on spirituality and the "peace beyond all understanding." You can read all Soul Seeing columns here.
