Justice and Peace

Reflection on Justice

Sr. Marta Elena Vélez, delegate of Justice and Peace - Spain.- The reality of our broken world demands of us a response to justice, which becomes a continuous and intense search for causes. In every General Chapter, Provincial Chapter, Enlarged General Council (EGC), this theme resounds with demanding generosity, reaffirming our commitment to JUSTICE, PEACE AND INTEGRITY OF CREATION, to combat against all forms of violence, poverty and to defend above all the dignity of the human person, giving priority to the option in the peripheries, where "life cries out".

Our solidarity will leave its footprints in the present and in the future

Let us renew the spirituality of the Charism of our Foundress, whom privation, poverty, need, and hunger moved and motivated her to leave and go forth to meet all those who were waiting for her service of Charity in solidarity.

Our witness today is to assume a style of life characterized by simplicity, austerity and work in today’s society that not only consumes us, but also makes us compulsive consumers. The way we use our resources and assets and the choices we make tell the world a lot about who we are and what our values are. It is an urgent need to rethink about the ethical criteria that governs our economy and ensure our objective of the common good that is the proclamation of the Gospel.

Our solidarity will leave its footprints in the present and in the future, if we really witness with our actions the quality of our evangelical poverty, that leads us to give generously our "five loaves and two fish".
