“Dont be like mannequins”

As part of his February Prayer Intention, Pope Francis calls on all Catholics to be prepared to take action in response to the suffering of refugees, the poor and the homeless in our world.

He urges us not to be like “mannequins who stand by and do nothing!”

As called for at the 2016 Brigidine Congregational Forum, “This demands an engagement with the new challenges of our contemporary world.”

During February, Brigidine Sisters, their associates and colleagues in ministry are invited to reflect on and respond to this challenge in their prayer and action for justice wherever they are.
