Peace & Justice News From Blessed Sacrament Province

Rose Mary Sullivan, CND

I invite those who are attracted to the third aspect of our orientation to consider the following invitation which came from The Green Faith Network. There is a new multi-faith initiative which you can join. It calls us, “to walk our talk, to align our behaviors with our values… to change our consumption habits… to join a journey towards lifestyles of compassionate simplicity, for the sake of the human family and our precious planet.” To give concrete expression to your response sign the multi-faith statement, Walk on Earth Gently.

In addition, you may know that the Trump Administration has sought to eliminate the contributions to the funds directed to implementing the Paris Agreement on Climate Change. The Senate is debating this issue right now. Please call your two senators asking them to support the Senate’s $10 m allocation to fund United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) and the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPPC).

TAKE ACTION (click to get phone numbers of your senators - Save this information for future actions.)

It occurs to me that the poorest of our peoples and nations are the most vulnerable to the effects of climate change so those who are attracted to the second aspect of the orientation might join in these actions as well.

For those who are attracted by the challenge of the first aspect of our orientation, I invite you to view a video on YouTube. This film gives an alarming picture of the privately owned detention centers and prisons in our country. This 15 minute film, Immigrant Prisons, is quite informative, and more than a little shocking.

Thank you for responding to these calls to learn and to act on what you learn.
