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. We call upon all Americans to take a long, loving look at their own heart to learn how they can become an instrument for the eradication of racism at home, in their neighborhood, their church, their work place, their city or town and our country.

As Sisters of the Blessed Sacrament, we believe God calls us to be a sign in the world of the power of the Eucharistic Christ to effect unity and community among all people. We invite all people to join us in responding to this call “that all may be one”.
