Promote healing and wholeness

We commit ourselves
to promote healing and wholeness
in all aspects of life,
to seek to preserve the integrity of life
and to act where this integrity is threatened,
to participate in the movement of empowerment
of those made poor
and those who are oppressed,
weaving care and compassion
into the web of life. 

Together with others similarly called,
we participate in the birth of a new world reality
as we link our lives
with those made poor,
with those who suffer,
with those who are victims of systemic injustice,
laboring to bring about our mutual liberation,
publicly witnessing to alternate ways
of being and behaving,
pushing beyond those boundaries
which separate and divide.
