A Cross of Stars Across these great lands she brought the Good News With courage and love in her heart, That faith and hope and love may live Beneath a cross of stars, beneath a cross of stars Early in life she heard God’s call, the call of Christ to stand with the poor, to serve like Joseph to serve in deed to teach, to love, to answer a need.

Justice Signs of a just person…. • Loving the person regardless of the actions they may take. • Not taking sides • Not thinking that one person’s right are ‘better’ or more deserving over another person’s rights • both sides are treated with love and dignity.
Justice Treating people with justice is not the same as treating people equally…. JUSTICE AND EQUALITY ARE NOT THE SAME THING
