Today marks the end of National Catholic Sisters Week, March 8-14. Anyone who is a member of Pax Christi USA knows that it is women religious who form the backbone of our movement. They are present everywhere in our ranks, leading us and giving of themselves. From the women religious on our national staff to our national council, Teachers of Peace and Ambassadors of Peace, regional leaders and local group leaders and everywhere in-between, women religious are embodying, proclaiming and witnessing to the peace of Christ in our world.
I think I can confidently speak for all of us in Pax Christi USA who are not women religious when I say to all of our Catholic Sisters, thank you. Thanks for your lives of generosity and kindness, the tenacity of your spirit, the clarity of your vision, the strength of your witness. We are inspired and emboldened in the work for peace with justice because of your presence among us.
