The mission of the Justice, Peace and Integrity of Creation ministry is to explore CSA's distinct contribution to the ongoing, nonviolent transformation of the world towards peace, justice and ecology. This work embraces the efforts of sisters, associates, co-workers and others who share the CSA vision. We live out the mission to bring about systemic change by using the lens of nonviolence to focus on the issues of women, children, health care, globalization (especially as it affects Latin America), seamless ethic of life.

Social Justice from Home

March 16, 2020
By Sister Ruth Battaglia, CSA

While your usual activities curtailed to efforts by contain COVID19 use the time to advocate on on behalf of social justice issues (care of Earth, immigration, gun control, voting rights, etc.) with phone calls, letters and signing petitions with your own added comments. Tune in to webinars to increase your understanding of issues that you care about. Fill out your census form:  https://2020census.gov/en.html   

I welcome any of your suggestions. 


A Prayer for COVID-19 Pandemic

May we who are merely inconvenienced remember those whose lives are at stake.
May we who have no risk factors remember those most vulnerable.
May we who have the luxury of working from home remember those who must choose between preserving their health and making their rent.
May we who have the flexibility to care for our children when their schools close remember those who have no options.
May we who have to cancel our trips remember those who have no safe place to go.
May we who are losing our margin money in the tumult of the economic market remember those who have no margin at all.
May we who settle in for a quarantine at home remember those who have no home.
As fear grips our country, let us choose love.
And during this time when we may not be able to physically wrap our arms around each other, let us yet find ways to be the loving embrace of God to our neighbors.
Amen.
