Starting with the biblical teaching that the fiftieth year marks a time for celebration and reflection as well as the embarkation point of a new journey, Harris helps women enter the second half of life with a refreshed spirituality, an increased freedom, and a richer sense of themselves. To create this inspiring and empowering guide, Maria Harris drew on her own experience as a jubilarian; on the writings of such women as May Sarton, Elizabeth Janeway, Doris Grumbach, and Florida Scott-Maxwell; and on the moving responses of more than 140 diverse women to her questionnaire on growing older. While the specific revelations of Jubilee Time are unique to each woman, all recognize the astonishing power of their mature minds and spirits.
Maria Harris was a writer, speaker, and advocate for religious education. A former member of the Sisters of St. Joseph, Maria dedicated her life to teaching and leading Catholic parochial schools. In addition to her grade school work, Harris was a very successful teacher of higher education at Immaculate Conception seminary, Andover Newton Theological School, and Fordham University.
