It seems many people are accepting a negative political and international atmosphere that leads to fear, prejudice, and withdrawal. In contrast, several Affiliates have provided articles for this issue which highlight their efforts to move towards wholeness. Their positive ideas, advocating for peace and nonviolence, having environmental discussions, participating in interfaith groups, and performing service work are all in the direction of wholeness. 

The Maryknoll Affiliate Book Group is reading Ilia Delio’s book which discusses wholemaking. In an article in this issue Lenore Smith-Aman asks, “Since we are connected to each other as Affiliates, how can we consciously and creatively work to transform the present political climate from extreme divisiveness to wholeness?”

We encourage Affiliates and Affiliate Chapters to talk about what they are seeing, to not be silenced by the fears and the rhetoric we hear, but rather to intensify our efforts in wholemaking, building Community and taking Action, with a prayerful and loving Global Vision. Then share your concerns and efforts with us at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it..

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.
