Chapter Message - Southern African Province 2001
At the start of the new millennium,
we, Ursulines of the Roman Union,
daughters of Angela, pilgrim of peace and justice,
hear the call to become more fully
Artisans of peace.
In our world torn by division and inequality,
we respond as women of peace by
promoting justice and reconciliation:
in all our actions and relationships,
in community and mission,
towards all people and all cultures,
towards the earth and all creation.
"This is what God asks of you, only this:
to act justly, to love tenderly
and to walk humbly with your God."
