Easter Reflection

Easter is a season, and so, we take time to share part of Pope Francis’ Easter message. The pope stressed the need for entering into a relationship, kinship, fraternity, sister/brotherhood in Jesus’ message to us, his followers. Pope Francis stated, “Jesus told his followers they would know they were his disciples from their love for one another.  We are called to take care of the common good, our sisters and brothers, especially the weakest and most marginalized.  Only fraternity can guarantee lasting peace, defeat poverty, extinguish tensions and wars and can eradicate corruption and crime. There cannot  be a true communion and commitment to the common good and social justice without fraternity and sharing.” We ask ourselves: How/when have I committed to the common good? When did I last share my time with a sister? Choose a new relationship.

Remembering Martin Luther King Jr.

Wednesday, April 4, marks 50 years since civil rights leader Martin Luther King Jr. was shot in Memphis, Tennessee. It was the time when he was laying out his vision of “The Beloved Community.” He was resurrecting his dream of a community that values the humanity of everyone, a place where love and trust will triumph over hatred and fear. Looking back we can see the impact the civil rights movement had on so many other areas – women’s rights, labor rights and immigrant rights. It is lesser known that King himself saw immigrants and foreigners as enhancers of American life; he welcomed all.
