Vision Guide 2006

Recommended Posts

Just got it in the mail. It seems they really turned it around. They have a lot of articles now, before it was just advertisments. Their articles range from areas of vocations of bishops, and spiritual direction and cool stuff like that. So they're getting better! Get yours today!

Be careful with the Vision guide! They have oodles of wacky Orders (well, imo, "wacky" = "orders who have severely misinterpreted the changes of Vatican II"). They do have good Orders in there, too, but in the last Vision guide I got, there were [i]very[/i] few good Orders.

I agree. I have been receiving it since 1999. I have noticed the orders that wear habits has gone down in number over the years

I prefer to use the Internet and there is a "good" catalog available. Check out cmswr.org

The magazine itself is Ok. But the orders that advertize are more liberal because they have the money to advertize everywhere whereas a lot of the more traditional orders just don't have the money for that sort of thing.
So, it's a good idea to look at the articles separate from the advertizers!

I don't think that is what Susan meant, but there are MANY orders that are... I know
that they are an order you are looking into and are just defending their name, but there wasn't a need to jump the gun a little... :) God Bless

Well I question the magazine's integrity, because they also advertise books by Father Rolheiser (who is a heretic, from all I can tell). I don't think it's very commendable to simply advertise the Orders who have the money to do so, and any books by authors who have money to do so. They should at the very least be screened.

Yeah, I agree about some of the orders being questionable, but I thought the one article about the Rwandan priest and the cloistered nun was really worth reading and a wonderful story!

well i guess if you approach the whole guide as permeated with ads from "bad" orders, you might miss out on being open to God's will.
It may be clear sometimes, it may be not so clear. You just have to read the thing being aware, as opposed to trashing the whole thing altogether, it has helped me in my discernment. Although i have not seen the new one at all, i have gotten the ones the past couple of years.
