Freedom, Justice and Sincerity: Reflections on the Life and Spirituality of Mary Ward

In this year where we celebrate the 400 year anniversary of the founding of Mary Ward’s Institute, a revolutionary way for women to live an apostolic life in the service of God and others, Christine Burke’s book on the life and spirituality of Mary Ward is timely. The author’s background as historian and theologian is evident in this insightful book. The turbulent 17th century context within which Mary Ward lived comes to life, and the author draws rich parallels with the turbulent times of the 21st century. This book will have wide appeal. Those who claim Mary Ward as a model of a woman’s way of faithfulness to God and to church—whether religious sisters or lay men and women—will find much to inform and sustain them in the book. Those who work in modern-day ministries related to those Mary Ward began—in schools and universities, especially for girls and women; in spiritual direction; in the service of the poor and marginalised—will find inspiration from it. The book also makes a valuable contribution to feminist theology and will therefore be a useful addition to theology institutes and students. Dr Leoni Degenhardt, Principal of Loreto Normanhurst
