In Loving Memory
Remember with us Sister Marie Kinsella, SBS who has believed in God’s promise and lives now in God’s presence forever.
We, Sisters of the Blessed Sacrament, are saddened, angered and heartbroken on the killing of George Floyd. We pray for the repose of his soul and for comfort and peace to his family. We are appalled by the murderous conduct by members of our law enforcement officers, who are sworn to protect and serve everyone in their community. Their failure to live up to their duty is rooted in the systemic racism that has been a part of our society since its foundation. In recent weeks we mourn Reason “Sean” Reed, Breonna Taylor, Ahmaud Aubery, and now George Floyd.
As Sisters of the Blessed Sacrament and in the spirit of St. Katharine Drexel we join our voices with those who march against these injustices demanding accountability from those who have the obligation to create a just society. Instead, they preside over our nation as it suffocates in racial hatred, inequality, and disrespect for human life, especially the lives of its African American citizens. All of us are accountable for our response to the gospel message of Jesus Christ; a message that challenges us to love, and to model that love daily in our interaction with our fellow brothers and sisters. We pray that justice will be served.

A Eucharistic World Rooted in Compassion and Justice
Guided by the spirit of Katharine Drexel, we are called to share the gospel message with the poor, especially among the Black and Native American peoples, and to challenge all forms of racism as well as the other deeply rooted injustices in the world.
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 peoples.
