During this critical postelection time, the USA Roman Union Ursuline Leadership teams invite our sisters and collaborators to commit ourselves to engage in prayer, reflection and compassionate responses to the needs of our world, our nation and our most vulnerable brothers and sisters.
St. Angela invites us: “…always act out of charity, with faith and hope in God”.
Pope Francis tells us: ? “Before all else, the Gospel invites us to respond to the God of love who saves us, to see God in others and to go forth from ourselves to seek the good of others.” (The Joy of the Gospel)
Our Ursuline Chapter call: “Be the change you wish to see” compels us through word and deed to act in God’s name who accompanies us in light and darkness.
