This past March, Irma Dillard, RSCJ, joined the faculty, staff and students at Stone Ridge School of the Sacred Heart for their “Social Action Day.” Social Action Day focused on examining racism in light of the Chapter Calls, the work that the Society has done to explore and address its past with slavery, and what that means for all of us today.

In his latest book, The Universal Christ, Richard Rohr speaks of the centrality of relationship. “My trinitarian faith says that God is Relationship Itself,” he writes. “The names of the three ‘persons’ of the Trinity are not so important as the relationship between them. That’s where the power is at.” He characterizes our human love relationships as a sort of “school” that prepares us for relationship with God, and he defines Grace as “just the natural loving flow of things when we allow it, instead of resisting it.”
