Last week, the Sisters of Charity of Nazareth leadership teams gathered in Orlando, Florida, with 650 members of the Leadership Conference of Women Religious (LCWR) for their annual meeting. During that annual meeting, it was apparent through discussions that participants felt called to create a statement on the deepening crisis between the governments of the United States and the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea (North Korea).
As Sisters of Charity of Nazareth, we affirm this statement based on our Gospel call to embody love for the sake of the world. We believe that love is more powerful than fear, dialogue more productive than rhetoric, and connection more transformative than threats of destruction.
As Sisters of Charity of Nazareth, rooted in our call to nonviolence and the promotion of peace, we call upon President Trump to engage in constructive dialogue and negotiation to resolve the current crisis between the governments of the United States and the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea in a manner that guarantees the peace and security that all people seek.
