In Response to Events in Washington
As Sisters of the Humility of Mary, committed to Jesus’ mission of bringing more abundant life to our world, to non-violence and compassionate justice, and to courageously speaking the truth, we watched the events unfolding in our nation’s capital this week with deep sorrow, disappointment and horror. The divisions that exist in our country that perpetuate these kinds of actions are a great cause of concern.
Today we add our voice to that of the Leadership Conference of Women Religious and many others in pledging to commit our energy to “helping to build a more perfect union.” We will work with others to proclaim the Gospel message of nonviolence, of hope and of peace during this time of great pain and division. We call on people of good will to join with us and to encourage our newly elected leadership to lead the way to a more united country.
