I said to the 8-year-old “how lucky she was to have him help her” His response was “Well someone has to do it so I guess it’s me.” What a parent won’t do to save their children.
Dare to be prophetic.
The Sisters of St. Joseph of Carondelet are a congregation of Catholic sisters. We, and those who share our charism and mission, are motivated in all things by our profound love of God and the dear neighbor.
The spirituality of the Sisters of St. Joseph is centered in love, the central commandment of Jesus—a love that seeks to achieve unity of neighbor with neighbor and neighbor with God. Our life together in prayer and in community impels us to reach out to the dear neighbor, whoever they may be, whatever the need they might have.
Our commitment to justice
The Sisters of St. Joseph of Carondelet work to bring loving unity to a divided world. Urgent needs call us to bold conversation and prophetic action. We educate, advocate and take action to promote social justice.
The Sisters of St Joseph of Carondelet in collaboration with the Fe y Alegría (Faith and Joy) School in Tacna, Peru have created a tree-planting program in this desert area: Trees for Tacna.
In both local communities, I experienced meaningful daily common prayer, delicious typical Peruvian dishes prepared right at home and an occasional outing. So, pass the days and the weeks, very ordinary, but never dull.
During this Season of Creation, there will be many opportunities to choose outward manifestations of your inner ecological conversion.
