Handmaids of the Sacred Heart of Jesus Post Election 2016 Statement
The Handmaids of the Sacred Heart of Jesus, grounded in the gospel and the ACJ mission are committed, in this “Divided States of America” to uphold the dignity of every person, enshrined in the Constitution, and wish to work for the common good of our nation and to promote a living faith that works for justice. In our society deeply in need of mercy, the Handmaids, with our Eucharistic-reparative charism and our rich experience of multiculturality can be agents of reconciliation and dialogue.
We will continue working to protect to the fullest extent of the law undocumented immigrants and will support and stand in solidarity with all our brothers and sisters, regardless of their faith traditions, gender, or culture to preserve the religious freedom’s on which this nation was founded.
As members of LCWR, we embrace the post election statement made by our leadership.
