PALM SUNDAY

“We wave palms because we have long awaited God’s deliverance and now we’re within seven days of it. We wave palms because Jesus shows us life-saving answers when we feel crushed by problems threatening to overcome us. We wave palms because Jesus has set us free from the destructive longings of our fallen nature. We wave palms because, like the pilgrims who came to Jerusalem and gave thanks for their healing by Jesus, we too can really be healed in body, mind, and spirit.

Christmas is the season for kindling the fire of hospitality in the hall, the genial flame of charity in the heart.

A statement from the Leadership Conference of Women Religious

LCWR Assembly Statement on the US-DPRK Crisis

This week, while tensions between the governments of the United States and the People’s
Republic of Korea quickly escalated, 700 members of the Leadership Conference of Women
Religious meeting in Orlando, FL issued a public statement imploring President Donald J. Trump
to engage in dialogue and negotiation.

At this critical moment for our country and global community, we – the 700 members of
the Leadership Conference of Women Religious gathered in assembly – have discerned
the Gospel call to embody love for the sake of the world.
We believe that love is more powerful than fear, dialogue more productive than rhetoric,
and connection more transformative than threats of destruction.

We call on President Trump to engage in constructive dialogue and negotiation to
resolve the current crisis between the governments of the United States and the
Democratic People’s Republic of Korea in a manner that guarantees the peace and
security that all people seek.

We commit ourselves to promote nonviolence and a compassionate response to the
thirst of the world for integrity and communion.

LCWR is an association of leaders of congregations of Catholic women religious in the United
States. The conference has nearly 1300 members, who represent more than 38,800 women
religious in the United States. Founded in 1956, LCWR assists its members to collaboratively
carry out their service of leadership to further the mission of the Gospel in today’s world.

MOTHER’S DAY

A mother is a person who seeing there are only four pieces of pie for five people, promptly announces she never did care for pie.
