Not Asleep, Fighting for Justice

Charles de Foucauld and freed slavesWe must stand up for the rights of our neighbour who is suffering from injustice. We must defend them all the more vigorously because we see Jesus present in them. This undoubtedly is our duty because of our love for others for Christ’s sake. We have no right to be ‘sleeping watchmen’ or dumb watchdogs [cf. Is 56:10]. Whenever we see evil we must sound the alarm.
Blessed Charles de Foucauld  (1858–1916)
