These videos have served the Society well in recent years. Tobie first gave the two lectures in person, in Rome, for the international tertianship of 2018. Then videos of the lectures were made so that she, from California, could join the 2019 renewal program for silver jubilarians meeting in Rome. In 2021 the international tertianship met virtually because of Covid and once again Tobie incorporated the videos into her virtual presentation. In 2023, she did the same for our novices in Jos.

Christmas Meditation 2022 – by Mary Ann Buckley, SHCJ – 6 minutes 43 seconds; a video reflection for prayer on the three moments of Incarnation – Creation, Jesus enfleshed, the reign of God; presented as part of the SHCJ Monthly Meditation video series

Watch This Space – 25 minutes; January 15, 2023; features interviews with eight sisters reflecting on their experience of participating in Society-wide conversations on incarnational spirituality; they respond to three questions: what especially sparked you in the conversations and feedback? What energizes you to do something more with that in the new year? What hurdles do you foresee?
