"The greater the work the more
important it is to establish it on
a solid foundation. Thus it will
not only be more perfect; it
will also be more lasting.”

St. Louise de Marillac

“Be diligent in serving
the poor. Love the poor,
honor them, my children,
as you would honor
Christ Himself.”

St. Louise de Marillac


Being a Peaceful Presence in a Turbulent Time

On Saturday, March 23, the Justice Circles sponsored a reflective workshop titled “Being a Peaceful Presence in a Turbulent Time: What’s the Work that’s Ours to Do?” facilitated by S. Bridget Bearss, RSCJ, the LCWR associate director for Transformative Justice. We spent the day learning about how we can have more nonviolent, dignified, and constructive conversations with people in the midst of this very contentious election year. By practicing these skills together throughout this year and beyond, we can transform our relationships with ourselves, one another, our families and friends, and the larger community we engage in our justice work. Instead of trying to be right, how are we relating to one another to understand and learn the “other’s” point of view? #peoplearemorethanourdifferences
