Missionaries of Africa are committed to Justice and Peace (JP)
believe that we are created in the "image of a Just and Peace-Full
God", and therefore justice and peace are part and parcel of
our human identity and vocation.
- follow in the footsteps of Jesus in proclaiming and working for
the Kingdom of God founded on reconciliation, justice and peace.
- put into practice the Social Teaching of the Church, aiming at establishing
a just and peaceful society.
It is a legacy and responsibility inherited from our founder, Cardinal
Lavigerie, well stipulated in our "Constitutions and Laws",
(Chapter 1 article 7; Chapter II article 19) and repeatedly confirmed
by our General Chapters.
we are sent to, especially the Africans, hunger and thirst for 'justice
naturally linked to our commitment to promote encounter and dialogue
between people of different cultures and religions.
in Africa, our first collaborators, have "Justice, Peace and
Reconciliation" high on their pastoral agenda. (Cf. Synod of
Bishops, " The Church in Africa in service to Reconciliation,
Justice and Peace, 2009)
"Sharing the sufferings of others and making
their aspirations our own demands of us a particular care for the
poor, a commitment to justice and peace, a concern that people's lives
be fuller and richer, more truly human. In this way will the dignity
of each and everyone as children of God be more truly acknowledged."
(Constitutions and Laws, Chapter I, Article 7)
