Saving Faith

Journey back to the 1960s and 1970s with author Elizabeth Osta as she recalls in clear detail a lived experiment in activism, spirituality, education, Catholicism, the meaning of vows, and the dreams and sometimes harsh realities of following a calling. Elizabeth Osta came of age as a nun, teacher, and activist with the Sisters of St. Joseph in Rochester, New York during Vatican II's aggiornamento, or the bringing up to date of the Catholic Church. But would Catholicism's new open-minded perspectives be enough to satisfy her intuition that something else, just as sacred, might be waiting for her outside the convent walls?
