Justice, Peace and Integrity of Creation

Welcome

This website established by Congregatio Jesu (CJ) and Institute of the Blessed Virgin Mary (IBVM) is a door to allow you to learn more about our mission, to see where we are, who is involved and with whom we work, to see the public stances we have prepared for decision makers in support of our JPIC ministry, and how to contact us.

We also include some presentations and reflections relating to the themes of our work. We hope that this website will encourage all to participate in the work of the JPIC Office, in the context of the vision and mission of our foundress, Mary Ward.

Freedom

The Just Soul

Mary Ward had a special relationship with God, family and others. This prepared her for what was to come in her journey to pursue her call ‘to this other thing’; she learned to refer all to God as her point of reference. God was at the center of her response to her call.

Sincerity for Mary Ward was expressed in the words “being such as we appear and appear such as we are”. It means living an integrated life that is honest and true, simply put: not wearing any masks.

Justice was a value that constantly invited Mary Ward to right relationships, and it must have flown directly from her disposition to refer all to God in freedom. As a result, she undertook with great commitment, all forms of good works.

For Mary Ward living the Just Soul brought her ‘indescribable joy’. A just soul refers all to God, endeavours to live in right relationships at all times and lives sincerely, just as she appears, leading to a state of great inner joy. The fruit of this is rendering joyful service to God and to humanity.

REFLECTION FOR THE COMMEMORATION OF THE WOMEN MARTYRS OF EL SALVADOR

Am I willing to suffer with the people here, the suffering of the powerless, the feeling impotent? Can I say to my neighbours I have no solutions to this situation; I don’t know the answers, but I will walk with you, search with you, be with you. Can I let myself be evangelized by this
