Echoes from past Chapters....

  • Ursula Bugembe and Helen McLaughlin
Chapter 1994, Canada


“We experience the originality of each culture which enriches our internationality.  At the same time, we notice the tension between our various cultures and internationality, and we suffer from this tension.  Individualism, racism, the fear of losing one’s own identity, the need for self-affirmation at the expense of others prevent us from going to the heart of each culture, embracing it without condescension and allowing ourselves to be challenged by it.  To enflesh the Gospel in different realities we need constant conversion.  We believe that to live in interdependence and solidarity is a sign and a witness of communion in a divided world.”
