Derek Chauvin Convicted in Killing of George Floyd, April 20, 2021.

St. Marguerite Bourgeoys our founder calls us “to love our God and our neighbor as we love ourselves.” Such love is found in a reciprocity, a mutuality of love. In fidelity to our commitment to bearing public witness that is clear and direct, we seek to fashion God’s beloved community with our brothers and sisters. We join in support and solidarity with the statement of the Equal Justice Initiative (www.EJI.org) and their call to us currently. We continue to engage in and collaborate with their truth telling about racial injustice in this country.

Wednesday, April 7, 2021 is World Health Day

The theme this year is Building a fairer, healthier world. https://www.who.int/campaigns/world-health-day/2021

Conditions for good health, mental and physical health, are so different throughout the world, how could we, who have so much to help us maintain good health, be involved in building a fairer, healthier world?

Perhaps we might begin with our own health and wellness. Credible resources in studies of mental health list three basic needs common to all human beings of all ages and stages, that help us feel good about ourselves. We have a need to feel competent, to have some autonomy and to be related/connected with others.

World Health Day is just a day. Can it help us be reminded of our responsibility for caring for our own health, resilience and positive approach to everyday life in the world in which WE live?

Eleanor McCloskey, CND
