I remember Hortencia, talking to a gathering of abused women in the Chalco slum of Mexico City. Her message was from Psalm 139 and those women wept to think that, in spite of the hitting and hateful words that had been heaped on them by husbands and lovers, they could somehow cling to the words, “You created my inmost being; you knit me together in my mother’s womb. I praise you, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made.” At its best, our work sparks an inner renewal that is pure good news joy!
At its best, our work of renewal points to God and deepens our relationship with him.
