Peace and Justice
From the US Bishops: "The Church's social teaching is a rich treasure of wisdom about building a just society and living lives of holiness amidst the challenges of modern society. Modern Catholic social teaching has been articulated through a tradition of papal, conciliar, and episcopal documents."
Our Commission dedicates itself to understanding the Social Teaching of the Church and identifying opportunities to promote a world that reflects the Peace and Justice of the Kingdom of God.
In 2022, we may face international tensions, we may be challenged as we learn about the decisions of the Beacon of Light this spring, we may continue to suffer from the pandemic. We also journey together by participating in a new path called " For a Synodal Church: Communion, Participation, and Mission” throughout 2022. We look to this Scriptures passage and trust. Jesus' words that assure us that we need only follow Him. Pope Francis in June 2021 suggested this prayer : "Jesus, meek and humble of heart, transform our hearts and teach us to love God and our neighbor with generosity." Perhaps this simple prayer will enlighten our hearts to the truth of his Holy Spirit in 2022.
