By this Author

In San Antonio we shared a feast and a festival

Dancing with Sister Water and all our sisters and brothers

We can all build gardens together, but we don't yet recognize each other

Young women work together to present at UN forum

May the communion of saints bring us comfort!

'Washerwomen God' invites us

Immigrant children: unending detention

The puppet and the saint seeking truth

Baptism is our call to care for water

The world will be saved by beauty

Compassion unites us across faiths

Glory brighter than the burning napalm

Danger did not drive us out of Peru

El peligro no nos hizo salir de Perú

Dancing and praying in the nuclear age

Compassion and courage, sisters and popes
