Core Value of the Sisters of the Blessed Sacrament and Associates of the Sisters of the Blessed Sacrament
We live in solidarity with those who are denied full human dignity, praying for justice, acting justly, and addressing the causes and effects of injustice.
Join with others and become concerned about Human Trafficking. Let us be a voice for those who cannot speak for themselves.
All the above are absolute and added to the above is the venerability of many to become victims of “Human Trafficking”. Learn more about the Dream Act https:///www.nilc.org/issues/immigration-reform-and executive actions/dreamact/dream-act-2017-summary and faq/
Sisters of the Blessed Sacrament Leadership Team’s Response To
The Deadly Incident in Charlottesville, VA on August 12, 2017
August 15, 2017
As Sisters of the Blessed Sacrament, our mission calls us “. . . to challenge all forms of racism, as well as, the other deeply rooted injustices in the world today.”
In light of this “challenge,” we are opposed to white nationalism and its promotion of violence against other races. We believe that racism is wrong in principle, morally and socially and must be eradicated not only from our institutions but from the very heart of our nation. We call upon religious leaders of all faiths to encourage their congregations to challenge racism.
“Ours is the Spirit of the Eucharist, the total Gift of Self.”
“If we live the Gospel, we will be people of justice and our lives will bring the good news to the poor.”
Saint Katharine Drexel.
