Sisters Of Mercy

I am pleased to share with you that Blessed Sacrament (USA) Province supports the Sisters of Mercy effort to bring a speaker from the COPINH coalition in Honduras to the School of the Americas’ Convergence on the US/ Mexico border being held in October (7-10) of this year. I remind you that Berta Caceres, the Honduran indigenous and environmental rights campaigner, was murdered in early March, barely a week after she was threatened for opposing a hydroelectric project. The co-founder of the Council of Indigenous Peoples of Honduras (Copinh) was shot dead by gunmen who entered her home in La Esperanza. Some of the Congregation of Notre Dame Sisters in Honduras worked with Berta and were very affected by her murder. This is a concrete expression of solidarity with our CNDs and with the people of Honduras.

Sully

In January 2009, Capt. Chesley "Sully" Sullenberger (Tom Hanks) made an emergency landing in the Hudson River in New York after a flock of geese crippled his plane in flight. We remember this event; the landing was successful and all of the 155 passengers and crew survived. This movie is about the after-events, and the way we can be quick to second-guess motives and decisions and slow to recognize a selfless act for what it is. Tom Hanks is an excellent Sully.
