The Association of Ladies of Charity of Milwaukee wishes to thank everyone who attended the national assembly in September. It was truly a magical weekend filled with Just Care speakers, friends, inspirations and memories that will last us until we are together once again In New Orleans. None of us will forget the concluding Mass during which we joined in song with three local choirs and installed our new officers.
So as we leave you, we invite you to ponder the words of Dorothy Day, “What we would like to do is change the world-make it a little simpler for people to feed, clothe, and shelter themselves as God intended for them to do. And, by fighting for better conditions, by crying out unceasingly for the rights of the workers, of the poor, of the destitute… we can, to a certain extent, change the world; we can work for the oasis, the little cell of joy and peace in a harried world. We can throw our pebble in the pond and be confident that its ever-widening circle will reach around the world. We repeat, there is nothing that we can do but love, and dear God, please enlarge our hearts to love each other, to love our neighbor, to love our enemy as well as our friend.”
Thank you for coming to Milwaukee and praying with us.
