Chapel Windows XII: Justice

Justice - scales

The Benedictine charism is to seek God as members of a cenobitic community and to respond through prayer and ministry. This charism is reflected in symbol in the beautiful stained glass windows in our chapel.

JUSTICE

Justice is symbolized by scales.

The mandate of Jesus, to hunger and thirst after justice, enables us to hear and respond to the cries of our oppressed sisters and brothers as we struggle to create a just society.

Let nothing be preferred to the Work of God – Rule of Benedict 43:3
