Delegates Share Their Inspirations

We asked the delegates signed up for our Remembering the Churchwomen Delegation to share what inspires them about Ita, Maura, Dorothy, and Jean. Here's what they had to say:

martyred churchwomen

“The all-inclusive, self-emptying, animating LOVE that motivated the lives of these women. It is a grace I hope to deepen.”

“Having spent some months in Bolivia prior to their murders, it felt so close to home. I had learned about the social reality/nightmares in a way that could not be denied... In the thirty years since, the women have remained a touchstone for me when working in the inner city.”

“The event of their deaths inspired me to leave my ‘safe’ ministry in teaching and go out to a resettlement area and to live as part of an ecclesial community and respond to the needs of the people.” Read more inspirations here

A Peek into the Magic of a Grassroots Delegation

st-sebs5-533x300

“Life in Teosinte in not taken for granted – every moment is precious. Why do these people want to continue living in Teosinte – working as hard as they do to make a life for themselves? I believe they choose to live in Teosinte because this is the life they know. They want a place for their families, a place they can call home and live in peace. The passion and love in the hearts of the Salvadoran people is great. The struggle for peace, equality and justice continues.”  –Sue Olson, Saint Sebastian delegate Read More
