Nuns continue to inspire–See you in Atlanta!
We are looking forward to attending the Leadership Conference of Women Religious next week in Atlanta, Georgia from August 9-13 with some of our favorite Women Religious!
Their bold examples of leadership and love continue to inspire many in the Catholic community. We especially appreciate their upcoming letter to the 2016 presidential candidates which will be delivered later this week, which urges them to step outside themselves and act for the common good. We stand with you sisters! Here’s a excerpt:
“In his September 24, 2015 address to the U.S. Congress, Pope Francis reminded all who seek to serve that, “You are called to defend and preserve the dignity of your fellow citizens in the tireless and demanding pursuit of the common good, for this is the chief aim of all politics.”
“Unfortunately, we live in a time when our politics is too often marked by self-interest and demeaning rhetoric. We seem to be caught in a political system paralyzed by ideological extremism and hyper-partisanship. Those on all sides of the growing political divide too often appeal to our basest instincts and stoke the fires of fear that tear at the fabric of our nation. We cannot let the voices of hatred and fear carry the day.
