A magestic monarch flying freely in Wisconsin on August 6, 2009? How simply Transfiguration-like is that! The Franciscan Sisters of Christian Charity novices, Sister Chiara LaValley, OSF, and Sister Pamela Catherine Peasel, OSF, have been photographing important butterfly-011.jpgstages in the life cycle of Bonnie Sithin, one of nature’s newly named bright-winged seraphs. This thirty plus day Franciscan novena included a photo shoot two days a week focusing on the stages of ‘our caterpillar’. 

Monarchs being generational migrants group together in their flight to freedom. Interesting that two young women themselves in ‘a stage’ of becoming a Sister should take a contemplative look at another creature involved in change and growth.

Any wisdom to share on this eve of the feast of the Transfiguration?
