Nonviolence - Our Chapter Act (Part Three)

Over the next few days I will be sharing our CSJP Congregation Chapter Act, "Seeds of Peace: Growing in Nonviolence." Here is part 3 (click here for the beginning of this series):

Sowing the Seeds of Peace
“You will hope, if God blesses your work, to sow the seeds of peace in modern society.” (Bishop Bagshawe at profession of first Sisters of Peace, January 7, 1884).

The lens of non-violence brings new insights and commitments to all aspects of our lives together. We commit to look with eyes of compassion, to relate with openness and hospitality, and to act from a center of contemplative prayer, peace and passion. Our prayer and study lead us to actions which “make our own the concerns of the human family … especially those who are poor and oppressed.” (C 55).

More to come ...
