More Happiness in Forgiving

web TumeinskiPart of the mission of Anna Maria College, as a Catholic institution of higher learning, is to foster in our students “social awareness, dedication to justice and peace, religious and moral sensitivity and a lifestyle capable of sustaining these within balance.” What might that mean in today’s world?

We have all heard about, and perhaps even seen close up, the ongoing violence occurring all too recently in our streets, malls, schools, markets, airports and even places of worship. In response, Catholic voices in the US and around the world–such as the Knights of Columbus, the Catholic community in Baton Rouge, the Diocese of Manchester, Chaldean Catholics in Baghdad and the Bishops of Honduras–have been urging Christians to pray, fast and work for peace and join together in these efforts with people from other religions and all people concerned about peace.

Pope Francis recently commended the examples and the efforts of young people especially, as bridge-builders and peacemakers:

Art therapists use art media, and often the verbal processing of produced imagery, to help people resolve conflicts and problems, develop interpersonal skills, manage behavior, reduce stress, increase self-esteem and self-awareness, and achieve insight."

Higher Education Can Drive Civic Engagement

President Mary Lou RetelleFifty-five years ago, President John F. Kennedy famously used his first speech as commander-in-chief to implore upon young Americans to “ask not what your country can do for you – ask what you can do for your country.”

That call to action drove civic engagement for the Baby Boomer generation for decades to come. Men and women signed up for the Peace Corps, the military, community service organizations, and opportunities of all shapes and sizes in order to improve our society.

But on the eve of electing a new president, it’s time for a call to action to a new generation.

Today more than ever, there are many opportunities for young people to check out from community action and stay isolated.
