From the Border
We remain ever conscious of our sisters and brothers on the U.S./Mexico border – U.S. residents serving as volunteers, those from Central America who are seeking asylum, those walking through Mexico currently, and our own Sisters and Associates who are responding to the needs they find there. We are assured that all will be met with respect, compassion and love. In the words of our SC Charism Statement: “As pilgrims we pray for the wisdom to know the needs of our sisters and brothers and we dare to risk a caring response.” Sharing some of her learnings from her recent experiences is S. Janet Gildea. READ MORE
