“ I shall consider everything that God has given me not to be mine but a trust given to me so that I can use it for the benefit of my neighbour. Life, health, intelligence, activity and all else that I may come to possess, I shall use for the advantage and for the relief of my brethren.”
St. Bartolomea Capitanio, a visionary educator and a soul spent her life for loving God and neighbours founded the Society of the Sisters of Charity to carry out the mission of educating the youth, caring for the sick and support the needy. As the torch-bearers of her vision, we carry on her mission in loving, caring, and educating.
The poem Begin now. Why are you waiting? perhaps captures the sense of duty and commitment with which we carry on this mission:
If each note of music were to say
One note does not make a symphony.
There would be no symphony.
If each word would say
One word does not make a book
There would be no book
If each seed were to say
One gram does not make a field of corn
There would be no harvest.
If each of us were to say
One act of love cannot save mankind
There would never be justice and peace on earth.
Why are you waiting? Begin now.
Can a person really make a difference? The question is superfluous. History demonstrates humans can. The question is whether you will make that choice to make a difference in the world to make it better? It is up to us to listen humbly and attentively to the changing context of human society and its people so that we may become agents of change for a just, loving and caring human family. Let us not withhold the good from those for whom it is their due; when it is in your power do it.
