On February 17th, CRS information technology experts Steve Hellen and Marianna Hensley led a webcast with students as part of the CRS University Faculty Learning Commons. The following are some excerpts from the conversation; you can view the webcast in full at: catholicreliefservices.adobeconnect.com/p2flv0odgll/
Besides tweeting about it (using #4Lent4Life, of course), Catholic Relief Services offers a number of ways you can live your faith, deepen your prayer, and more intentionally connect to the Catholic mission of solidarity with people around the world during the season of Lent. And, you can engage others on your campus to do the same!
Pope Francis reminds us that “Whoever uses and exploits the person, even indirectly, makes himself an accomplice of this abuse [trafficking].* How can we understand better the ways that human flesh is sold for profit in our global economy? What actions can we take for justice?
On the occasion of the February 8 International Day of Prayer and Awareness against Human Trafficking, the CRS University team would like to offer the resources below for learning and reflection. Let our prayer be to overcome our indifference.
We just love it when our CRS Student Ambassadors educate their campus communities about global justice issues. Fortunately, it happens ALL the time. We also love it when CRS Ambassadors themselves learn something new.
