Peace must be built on justice, on integral human development, on respect for fundamental human rights, on the protection of creation, . . . on dialogue and solidarity.
Pope Francis, Message to UN Conference, 27-31 March 2017
As a Congregation we are called to shape communities of gentleness, justice and peace, impelling us to promote right relationships that witness to the liberating and empowering love of God.
In our daily living and in our ministries of presence, love, justice and reconciliation, we strive to share the compassion of the the Heart of Jesus with all we meet.
Our commitment to continual growth and conversion enables each of us to acknowledge the violence and non-peace within and in allowing that to “be healed by God’s mercy, becoming in turn an instrument of reconciliation.” (Pope Francis, 50th World Day of Peace, 1 January 2017)
