Erie Benedictine Sr. Joan Chittister looks at American social issues and politics through the lens of Catholic social teaching.
From Where I Stand: If you want to resolve a problem, you must be willing to face it, to address it consciously, to confront it. We must stand up to the wind that's shaking the pillars of our republic.
From Where I Stand: It is not the force of power, or the power of force, that can save us. Only inclusiveness and equality everywhere — not party bosses or class conformism — can really save us.
From Where I Stand: Rule making or rule breaking? Each of these has its place. The moral response requires that we decide which is most life-giving at any given time.
From Where I Stand: My mother insisted that there was something to be learned in everything. I've learned a lot from President Donald Trump in none of the ways I wanted to.
