Changing a broken system

Living the Gospel - Sr. Berta Sailer and Sr. Corita Bussanmas have helped three generations of children in the urban core of Kansas City, Mo., from providing day care and education to lobbying to change state legislation. With Operation Breakthrough, their care extends to the children's families, and they have gone even further, adopting children into their own. Sailer works to change attitudes, too, saying poverty exists because we allow it.
