The JPIC International Meeting would not have been possible without the help of so many people who worked behind the scenes.
JPIC News and Updates
Daphne Sequeira rscj, the JPIC Link to the Central Team, delivered the Closing Message.
"JPIC is a style of LIFE, of relationship, of ‘caring’. It is the living out of our commitment to Jesus and to those who are close to his heart."
"... through our contemplation of the pierced Heart of Jesus, we are impelled to protect life in the suffering humanity in our own countries, provinces and regions where we represent the Society."
"I feel that today’s experiences are asking us all to commit ourselves to listen with all of senses so that we may understand fully before we speak."
"My desire is to be more aware about unjust systems and to help young people in their search for a just and peaceful world."
"Listening to the report of Anne Corry and Sheila Smith was a proud moment for me. These opened my eyes to the productive realities of our internationality. It is our “good news” for the oppressed."
"We are citizens of our world and we are invited to create spaces that might help to break unjust structures. Let us remember that we cannot do this alone, but that we CAN do it together, and with the help of Philippine, to whom we can confide these efforts."
"Let us thank Philippine today for being willing to grapple with the evils of her time and for finding ways to do good even when those ways were incomplete and imperfect. May we find the courage and humility to do the same."
"Let us celebrate our sister Philippine today, a woman of courage who gives us courage, a woman of hope who gives us hope, a woman of vision who urges us to participate in creating a world that mirrors God’s vision for his people."
