Jim O'Shea's Holy Week message and the Passionist Solidarity Network
View this email in your browser
"May the Passion of Jesus be, in fact, our center and may we ever more
intentionally walk with, serve, learn from, advocate for and suffer with the
Crucified of Today"

... in a word: solidarity.

We were grateful to receive the following Holy Week Message from Jim O'Shea, Provincial of St. Paul of the Cross Province.  We were struck by his story from Honduras and the beautiful symmetry with the announcement in our last newsletter renaming and focusing the Passionist Solidarity Network. (below Jim's letter) Thank you Jim!

A New Look and Recommitment: 
The Passionist Solidarity Network

You will notice a new look with this newsletter, starting with the masthead.  We are now proudly the Passionist Solidarity Network (PSN)!  More importantly we are recommitting ourselves even more strongly to the work before us.  Following important discussions with eastern and western Passionist provincials, we decided we wanted to show a new, more unified commitment to social justice with some rebranding reflects our renewed energy for this vital work of the Passionists.

You can see how our new logo directly places the PSN within the Passionist charism With the Crucified of Today. From doing this work together for Social Justice and Earth Care, we are Awakening the Compassion of Christ.  Solidarity is a bold and prophetic experience for all of us to seek.  It draws us ever closer to the margins and into the places where people are hurting and oppressed.  Our work is "with" as well as "for."

For the next year or longer, we will also be focusing much of our attention on the critical work of ecological justice and the intersections of Earth care and the cultural changes that must happen based on the powerfully written Laudato Si’ encyclical by Pope Francis.

We are excited about our work together moving forward!
