Headline: “You Are the God of Stillness,”
by Rose Tillemans, CSJ

I believe that your will for me, O God, is to be attuned to the Sacred.

I ask of you, Attentive One, for a sense of your presence this evening.

Help me to absorb reverently the moments you give me and to find richness and strength in them.

Keep me from moving too fast from one activity to another.

May I work against a sense of urgency — that I must be in perpetual motion because my causes are worthy ones.

Give me the gift of pausing to savor what is happening now before I plunge into the next activity.

May I see, hear, and touch each moment attentively.

Time and place are so sacred.

With our country at war, much of the world in combat with hunger and homelessness, call me to prayer and thoughtful action.

But for now, Great God of Stillness help me to be still.

Headline: This week we are witnessing a deep truth of our reality whispered and shouted from the streets. From our privileged role as witnesses, the landscape of collective pain, chronic frustration, and entrenched injustice once again is fully illuminated. The power of George Floyd’s voice is inescapable – “I can’t breathe.”

Loyola sits not far from where the shouting is loud. The smoke from the fires just a few blocks away coated one’s throat last night. Cars, police, ambulances, and fire trucks shot past through the evening. Loyola also sits not far from where the whispers can be heard. We hear the whispers of those whose spirits are assaulted by the rancor of the moment and the culture of white supremacy that lays beneath it.

Loyola’s own shout is with our neighbors against the scourge of racism, against the violence and the disparities perpetrated on anyone labeled a minority. Loyola’s whisper is to prayerfully listen, notice the invitations to act, and serve with and beside our neighbors.

On behalf of the Loyola Board and Staff,

Dan Johnson, Managing Director

Headline: Regarding racism:
Here are 10 steps we can each take to step out of the shadows of silence:

1. Learn about other people and their culture but go beyond foods and festivals.
2. Explore the unfamiliar. Put yourself in situations where you are in the visible minority.
3. Be a proactive parent. Talk to your children candidly about race.
4. Don't tell or laugh at stereotypical jokes.
5. Think before you speak. Words can hurt whether you mean them to or not.
6. Be a role model and help educate others regarding your own experiences.
7. Don't make assumptions because they are usually wrong and stereotypes are destructive.
8. Consider how race and racism impact your life and those around you.
9. Don't let others get away with biased language or behavior- speak up and out.
10. Take a position against hate and take a Stand Against Racism.

Headline: The world was increasingly inspired by the simple actions of Captain Sir Tom Moore, who died this week at age 100.

His desire to donate to healthcare workers in the UK by walking 100 short laps with his walker in his garden last year generated not the 1000 pounds he aimed for but ended up with 1.5 million individual donors.

His simple actions and positive attitude ("Tomorrow will be a good day!") garnered great popularity and he was eventually bestowed knighthood by the queen.

In this time of so much chaos and negativity, how are you doing small things to increase the positivity in the world?

Let us know in the comments. We'd love to hear from you!
