As Sisters of Charity of the Incarnate Word, Houston, serving in six countries, we are deeply concerned about the injustices of our time here in our home country and our hearts are breaking and grieving the death of George Floyd.  We stand against racism in all of its manifestations and believe in dignity and respect for each and every person. We believe in genuine peace through real justice and non-violence. As George Floyd is laid to rest in his and our hometown, with deep sadness and concern we mourn with his family and friends and with all who have lost loved ones and were denied their rights. For the sake of Mr. Floyd’s legacy and those of color — our friends, neighbors, clients, patients, our employees, and our own Sisters, many of whom are from African nations, we pray for our nation’s healing and for reforms where all are treated with the dignity they deserve. May the Incarnate Word hear us.
