“We have to realize that a true ecological approach always becomes a social approach; it must integrate questions of justice in debates on the environment, so as to hear both the cry of the earth and the cry of the poor.” (Laudato Si #49)

PROMOTE SOCIAL CHANGE FOR THE COMMON GOOD

 

When Mother Clara Pfaender encouraged her sisters to respond with loving kindness to all persons, she could not have imagined the future or the many needs her sisters would face, nor the creative ways her sisters would respond to those needs. She gave them, as she continues to give us, courage, and freedom to respond with imagination and love.

Inspired by Mother Clara, the JPIC Office endeavors each day to look at the greatest social justice issues of our times, and to discern how we can best respond: encouraging green practices to care for Mother Earth; signing petitions or sending letters to our government representatives; responding with prayer and concern for the marginalized and forgotten people in our society; and more.
