Description

Justice comes before charity. Everyone has a right to eat, and therefore there is a governmental responsibility to ensure everyone's capacity to eat. On the bus, our Sisters of Social Service moved from community to community hearing stories and letting our hearts be broken open. In the process we discovered that sharing stories leads to hope. Hope leads to community. Community leads to action for the common good, i.e. justice. This presentation features the stories Sister Simone heard about economic equality that moved her being to fight for economic justice.
