We Walk by Faith and not by Sight.
The 11th chapter of Hebrews opens with a description of faith as the “evidence of things not seen.” As people of faith, our hope lies in the Kingdom of God, revealed to us by the teachings, life and death of Jesus Christ.
We all have a sense, and our current context makes it even more clear, that the way our world works is not aligned with God’s vision for the world–where the inherent dignity of each person is recognized, and where mercy, compassion and justice reign.
There is so much suffering in our world, and we look to the witness provided by the saints to guide us in bringing God’s kingdom. St. Katharine Drexel, the Foundation’s patron saint and the founder of The Sisters of the Blessed Sacrament, is an inspiring model in the pursuit of racial justice. Promoting racial justice is a priority in the Foundation’s work and we hope that you’ll read more below about her witness and our commitments.
This summer, we feature numerous donors and funds that are modeling ways of “walking by faith, not by sight,” (2 Cor. 5:7) living in a way that is aligned with God’s Kingdom and dreams for the world.
We pray for each of you reading these articles. We are grateful for your faithfulness and generosity. We’d love to hear from you and see how we can support your faithful, impactful giving.
