Sister Simone Campbell

Today, instead of going to my regular Dignitas class, my class and I, along with the other Dignitas classes attended a lecture given by Sister Simone Campbell who is a part of the Nuns on the Bus effort. ¬†The Sister brought to light an economic issue- with a Catholic Social teaching twist. She explains that within the last thirty years, the rich got richer, and the poor got poorer. She explained this through numbers and a human bar graph; it was quite interesting. She says that Catholic Social teaching says that this is not fair, and it shouldn’t be happening. One does not have to be Catholic to agree with this, right? A person with a full-time job at minimum wage does not make enough money to cover necessary needs for life. They are often deemed lazy, but usually this isn’t the case- they simply just do not make enough money. She asked the audience members for solutions, and some of them were: awareness, lowering costs of education, making it easier to attain better paying jobs, etc. Sister Simone says that we need to have a heart for the whole. We need to open up our minds to others, not just ourselves, and we also need to care for the planet. I am not Catholic, personally, but I do believe that we need to have a heart for the whole, which is what Catholic Social teaching tells us. I appreciated this lecture very much. To me, the College does a fantastic job of bringing in interesting lecturers to keep us on our toes and open to the world outside of us.
