Our Superior General met with Archbishop Douglas Lewins, SSM in Toronto on June 23, 2018 for discussions regarding the growth of the Society and how to better serve the people of God.
As a Priestly Society committed to mercy, we cannot ignore the plight of immigrant families who are being separated at the border. Christians in good conscience may disagree about the methods of immigration reform, but our arguments and actions must reflect the dignity and value of every human life. Separating families denies the sanctity of life and is an unconscionable act.
As Christians, our faith compels us to show hospitality to strangers. This is a core tenet of our faith, and is especially pertinent because we worship a Savior who fled His own homeland. I urge the Administration to rescind the government’s policy of zero tolerance and offer my prayers for the families and children impacted by this policy.
