Sr. Rani Kurian, JPIC Coordinator
With other human beings, the Daughters of Wisdom take the JPIC mission seriously (Justice, Peace and Integrity of Creation). The values of this wide movement in the Catholic Church are rooted in the Gospel. They encourage human beings to be caretakers of creation, to take a radical option for the poor and become active builders of a just and peaceful world.
JPIC mission invites each Daughter of Wisdom to reveal Liberating and Incarnate Wisdom through prophetic actions that proclaim the presence of the Reign of God. We affirm that “being members of an International Congregation, we are attentive to the massive consciousness of the global dimension.” (RL 2) We are also part of forming the future generation through our various missions especially our schools and Institutions. Let us take seriously our responsibility to take care of our Mother earth and also encourage our staff, all those who are involved in our missions and students to make every effort in protecting and taking care of our natural environment. Pope Francis invites us to take care of our common home. In the encyclical letter Laudato si No.95 he says “The natural environment is a collective good, the patrimony of all humanity and the responsibility of everyone.”
In solidarity with our Brothers and Sisters let us join Pope Francis in taking every possible step to protect and care for our natural environment.
