Justice and Peace

Justice and peace, a lifestyle

“The 55th General Chapter 2019, insists on the commitment to:
  • Justice, peace and the care for creation as a lifestyle that expresses our preferential option for the marginalized, impoverished and those unnoticed in our societies.
And it proposes:
  • Continue to work for the care and defense of life in its integrity, with fundamental ethical options and to protect the environment, through experiential eco-pedagogical processes that require personal, community and missionary commitments that can be evaluated.”

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".
