El Papa Francisco en varias ocasiones y con mucho entusiasmo nos ha invitado a unirnos en una “Revolución de la Ternura”. Pero, ¿En qué consiste esta Revolución de la Ternura? En este artículo se presentan algunos recursos que pueden permitirnos acercarnos a esta propuesta del Papa Francisco desde sus propias palabras. Los compartimos con la intención que pueda ser una fuente para reflexionar y responder, de forma individual y en comunidad, a esta propuesta del Papa Francisco.

The Maryknoll Affiliate Mission Statement includes the phrase,

“Maryknoll Affiliates challenge one another to witness to mission as a way of life by going beyond borders (italics added for emphasis)...,” 

but this issue gives examples of Maryknollers and Affiliates not going beyond borders, but rather going to the southern US border and serving the great needs there. 

Several articles show it is not even necessary to physically go to the border to make a difference. David Schaffner points out that shoelaces are such a simple item but are providing a tangible way to connect with those in need and also to educate the local community about the situation at the border! Affiliates in this issue also say their mission is in the community: teaching English to immigrants, offering hospitality to traveling Maryknollers, or joining a Campaign Nonviolence action.  Santa Orlando points out the many ways the Albany Chapter maintains connections and is a catalyst and conduit of communication. She says Affiliates are called to Relationship.

And Affiliates contemplate. Before, during, and after actions, we contemplate our place in the global human family and know our hearts have been fracked. We “ain’t gonna study war no more.” Please share the fruits of your contemplation at Esta dirección de correo electrónico está siendo protegida contra los robots de spam.
