The JPIC Promoters
The JPIC Commission promotes and supports the integration of JUSTICE, PEACE & INTEGRITY OF CREATION (JPIC) in the life and mission of the Union of Superior Generals (USG) and the International Union of Superior Generals (UISG) and their member congregations. It is responsible for animating men and women religious in justice, peace and integrity of creation according to the vows of the evangelical life, through experience, social analysis, spiritual reflection and action.
Each year, the JPIC Commission focuses its activities on a particular theme. This year, our work centers on Looking for ways to respond to our call to holiness as contemplatives in action who promote God’s reign of justice, peace and love. This means being able to create a sense of God's presence with our family, our neighbor, the community, people of other countries, all living creatures, the environment around us and the entire universe. Moreover, we must promote justice, uphold peace and be loving and compassionate at every opportunity.
TOWARDS BUILDING ONE WORLD WITH A COMMON PLAN
The global experience of solidarity we are currently experiencing has given us the strength to survive the pandemic that is aggressively spreading in parts of the world. Knowing that we are not alone in dealing with the negative effects of COVID-19, gives us the perseverance to fight it. While it has caused our world to stop, it also allows us to assess what went wrong and the changes needed when we get back to our lives. Life as we have known it will not return to the way things were. Never have we had such awareness of the need to care for one another in our common home.
