In October’s newsletter, Sister Diana writes about the quality of Goodness, expressing her concern that the recent focus on “What’s good for me,” has replaced a focus on goodness and an interest in what’s good for the community and society at large.
She asserts, “A firm, unshakable belief in the value and dignity of each person and every life is something that I think is part of Goodness. We adults must acquire and practice this ourselves if we ever expect our children to learn it from us. They will never learn it from watching TV or social media. In fact, the norm that our children are exposed to over and over again is exactly the opposite.
