What is Justice?
In our current environment its hard to tell what is fair & right or just.
Over the next few months we will share what our faith tells us justice is, what we believe, and how we take action for justice in our parish and in our community. I hope you will join us in exploring justice by reading our monthly posts, considering how justice can take shape in your everyday life, and contributing to this especially important conversation.
All justice boils down to one overriding belief in the Fundamental Value of the Human Person, also described as the brotherhood of humanity (CCBS).
Promoting Justice consists of 3 things: EDUCATION –PRAYER—ACTION
The US Catholic Bishops organizes this fight for human development into 7 Themes of Catholic Teaching on Justice. Each month we will explore one of these themes to increase our own knowledge of each, offer scripture and prayer and sources of more in depth information. We will also include ways we can act on each theme in our everyday lives.
Finally, we will highlight projects at Our Lady that you see often, but may not know the justice cause behind, as well as offer opportunities to engage in conversation and action as we move forward.
