This slim volume contains lovely, thought-provoking reflections from missioners who have spent years living with impoverished and marginalized communities around the world.
Maryknoll missioners around the world feel the impact of social injustice and see its effects in the communities were they live and work. Flowing from their ministries of presence and accompaniment, as well as from the concrete programs and projects in which Maryknollers participate, we engage in the hard work of identifying root causes of social and economic injustice. With a particular focus on the geographical regions where Maryknoll is present, as well as on structural or systemic injustice affecting women, children, indigenous peoples, migrants and refugees and people with HIV and AIDS, we join with others of like mind to identify potential pathways to social transformation and to move our world in that direction.
Trafficking, sexual slavery, child prostitution ... all are gross violations of human dignity and demand urgent attention.

from our friends at the National Religious Campaign Against Torture:
Now that known torturer Gina Haspel has been sworn in as our new CIA Director, we must do what we can to ensure that neither she, nor anyone else, can ever bring back the CIA’s torture program. The first step is to ensure that Senators hear that their constituents were watching how they voted on Ms. Haspel.
