Adrian Dominican Sisters Justice and Peace Action Page

 

St. Catherine of Siena  by Aneesah McNamee, OP

Dear Adrian Dominican Sisters, Associates, and Friends,

The Adrian Dominican Justice Promoters invite you join us in reflection and action with this edition of the ADS Action Page. As always, this digest of online advocacy is rooted in the Mission and Vision of the Adrian Dominican Sisters.

This edition of the Adrian Dominican Action Page is dedicated to the spirit of Catherine of Siena. Her feast day—April 29th—is cause for celebration, and for doing good works of justice. We also call to mind the words of the ADS Vision:

"We commit to claim our moral authority to speak truth in Church and society in the spirit of Catherine of Siena."

Please join us as we embrace Catherine's mantle, and claim our moral authority and speak vital truth to power.

The Adrian Dominican Justice Promoters also join the congregation in the ministry of preaching on Facebook. Consider "liking" us and you will receive in your Facebook feed reflections on today's Scripture readings and posts from Justice Promoters: MAKING PEACE BY WORKING FOR JUSTICE. To view the Adrian Dominican Sisters' Facebook page: Click Here

In pursuit of peace,

The ADS Justice and Peace Promoters

Climate-Ecology

NEW!

The Catholic Sisters for a Healthy Earth, a coalition of women’s religious communities in Southwestern Wisconsin and Eastern Iowa, including the Sinsinawa Dominicans have created a booklet entitled: Earth As Our Home. In this refreshing 16-page booklet, the relationship between how one live in a house illistrates how one might live more harmoniously on Earth. Earth As our Home is written in accessable language, and offers practical and affordable suggestions to being a thoughtful steward of both the homes!

Nuclear Disarmament

NEW! 

Big news out of The Hague and San Francisco. The Republic of the Marshall Islands (RMI) has filed unprecedented lawsuits against all nine nuclear-armed nations for their failure to negotiate in good faith for nuclear disarmament, as required under the Non-Proliferation Treaty. The suits were filed against all nine nations at the International Court of Justice, with an additional complaint against the United States filed in U.S. Federal District Court.

The Nuclear Age Peace Foundation applauds the courage of the RMI’s leaders in bringing lawsuits against the nuclear-armed nations. The people of the RMI continue to suffer today from U.S. nuclear weapon tests that took place on their territory in the 1940s and 1950s, and they want to ensure that such devastation – or worse – is never brought on anyone ever again.

NAPF is playing a key role in the Nuclear Zero Lawsuits campaign, which just launched this morning. You can learn more about the specifics of the lawsuits and show your support by signing a petition supporting the RMI’s bold, non-violent action.
