Grounded in the Gospel…we follow Mary Ward’s way of freedom and justice, seeking to be a prophetic voice, risking new ways, and new paths, that God’s love be known.’ (Const. Vol. II Chp. 7 no.7.3)

Jesus chose ‘to pitch His tent’ with the people and to become like them in every way. Going to the people was the principal thrust of Jesus’ saving mission. It was the religious establishment who condemned Jesus for mixing with the riff-raff – publicans, sinners, outcastes – who were shunned by respectable society. He was for anyone who was oppressed, marginalized, ostracized, suffering… Jesus was clearly for the ‘ANAWIM’. Unless I involve myself with the struggles of the oppressed people, I cannot understand Jesus.
