“Leadership and authority are not the same thing …Authority goes in the direction that’s already in the book; the path that has been clearly trod before now, the way that is safe and sure, clear and certain, obedient and approved, applauded and rewarded. Leadership, on the other hand, rewrites the book. It takes the direction that leads only to the promise of a better tomorrow for everyone however difficult it may be to achieve it now.”   From NCR- Wanted; Women of Spirit  in our own time. Sister Joan Chittister, OSB
