Kairos Community in D.C.

We made it into D.C. Saturday night after driving all day. We spent Sunday morning at Jonah House celebrating liturgy, reflecting on our baptismal vows as we begin this Lenten journey and what that means for our call to be peacemakers and practice nonviolence, and enjoying a wonderful brunch prepared for us by the community in Baltimore. Later that afternoon we went to the Holocaust Museum. It was a very powerful day with emotional and spiritual ups and downs. We are still wrestling with what to make of it all. Then the snows began to fall.

The plan for this morning was to join the D.C. Catholic Workers at their weekly vigil for peace at the Pentagon, but because D.C. was dumped on with snow overnight we decided against it. We head off to the White House for the Witness Against Torture vigil at the White House in a few hours as part of the 100 Days Campaign.
