Healers in a harsh society

“We must become aware of the sacred in every single element of life. We must bring beauty to birth in a poor and plastic world. We must restore the human community.  We must grow in concert with the God who is within. We must be healers in a harsh society.

“We must begin to do life, to be with people, to accept circumstances, to bring good to evil in ways that speak of the presence of God in every moment.” Joan Chittister
“Remove the heavy yoke of oppression.
    Stop pointing your finger and spreading vicious rumors!
10 Feed the hungry,
    and help those in trouble.
Then your light will shine out from the darkness,
    and the darkness around you will be as bright as noon.
11 The Lord will guide you continually,
    giving you water when you are dry
    and restoring your strength.
You will be like a well-watered garden,
    like an ever-flowing spring.”  Isaiah 58: 9-11
