Socio-pastural

“Our faith in Christ, who became poor, and was always close to the poor and the outcast, is the basis of our concern for the integral development of society’s most neglected members” (Pope Francis -The joy of the Gospel). It is the compassion of God as shown in the sufferings of the Poor, which motivates the missionaries to engage themselves to the cause of the uplift of the poor. The poor whom Jesus espoused as his people, and addressed him to include all those categories of people who were oppressed by the local rich and religious leaders. The presence of Christ in Human struggles for social justice and for procuring the primary needs of the poor is an actualization of his mysterious presence in the struggles of today.

Our Foundress Blessed Brigida, a great visionary, a contemplative and a prophetic leader drew strength from the crucified Lord and gave life to the crucified world. Our Foundress urges us today to identify with Christ recognizing the crucified of today. We Ursulines are called to challenge, reach out and liberate. “Through our apostolates we conscientize the people about sensitivity to social Justice and protection of human rights specially in relation to the most defenseless, for example children, women, and the aged. Our solidarity expresses itself, above all, in eliminating all forms of discrimination.” (UMI Dir.No.85)
