September 29, 2019: Doing nothing is not an option.
Preaching for the Twenty-sixth Sunday in Ordinary Time, Joan Rosenhauer offers a reflection on responding to the enormity of the need around us:
"Even though we know that we can’t all do everything, and we can’t all do the same thing, every one of us can – and must – do something. Christ’s teachings tell us clearly that we all need to identify the 'somethings' we can do to help the Lazaruses in our world."
Joan Rosenhauer is the Executive Director of Jesuit Refugee Service/USA. In this role, she leads the organization’s efforts in the U.S. to fulfill its mission to accompany, serve, and advocate for refugees and displaced people. As a member of JRS’s global Senior Leadership Team, she also helps lead JRS’s global operations.
