Looking back at social cooperation between Vietnamese sisters and government authorities

The Vietnamese bishops’ 1980 joint letter called on religious to get involved in social activities, not only to secure a means of their livelihood but also to give witness to God. The document raised religious’ spirits so they could find peace of mind working with government officials on the basis of human dignity and social justice. We sisters took those opportunities to explain the ideals of consecrated life to those who asked, trying to lead them to the God of love through our daily life and activities.
