Dear Friends

These are challenging days, and we’ve only begun our journey into the Covid-19 crisis. As we’ve shared previously, we are viewing this time of enforced isolation as a time of Sabbath. Sabbath well lived invites us, and provides space for us, to “not do” but rather “to be” quieter, less busy, more reflective….a blessing that we do not seem to allow ourselves in a time of ‘normalcy.’

Dear Friends

These are challenging days, and we’ve only begun our journey into the Covid-19 crisis. As difficult as it is to let go of so many important and meaningful activities, we are considering the necessary curtailing of activities and appointments, trips and commitments as a time of Sabbath. Sabbath well lived invites us, and provides space for us, to “not do” but rather “to be” quieter, less busy, more reflective….a blessing that we do not seem to allow ourselves in a time of ‘normalcy.’

We, the undersigned Bishops of the International Circle of Roman Catholic Women Bishops express our anguish, sadness and incredulity at the current treatment of children at international borders of the United States. We speak out against any failure to provide adequate water, food, clothing, bedding and shelter to migrant children, against the separation of children from their parent/s, against the housing of children behind bars in facilities that are often former prisons, and against any failure to provide adequate care and supervision for these children. We see the treatment of children at international borders as a humanitarian crisis.
