Blue Hole Wisdom

Thoughts for the Journey

The Blog,
The Book

When I began my relationship with the Incarnate Word Sisters, what started as a job has evolved into a life journey that has changed what I value and the paths I travel. This blog is an outgrowth of that evolution. At Blue Hole Wisdom, you’ll find posts about the wisdom to be found in everyday experience.

About a decade ago, I started interviewing Incarnate Word Sisters to capture their unique perspectives and wisdom with the idea of writing a memoir. Now, Blue Hole Wisdom: My Journey with the Sisters, is available in paperback and e-book formats. A Spanish translation will be published as well.

I’m glad we can share the journey.

In this memoir of connection and common humanity, Bridget McDermott Flood reflects on the women behind the mystery and souls once veiled by habits, uncovering the wisdom, wit, and the indomitable spirits that have formed the charism of the Sisters of Charity of the Incarnate Word.

In a series of reflections, remarkable women come to life, illustrating the presence of the divine in the ordinary and extraordinary missions each Sister has undertaken. Their stories form the heart of Blue Hole Wisdom: My Journey with the Sisters.
