JOAN CHITTISTER FUND FOR PRISONERS
"Whether or not going to church correlates well with religious
values is clearly a debatable subject. To wit, the corporal
works of mercy -- as in, feed the hungry, give drink to the
thirsty, clothe the naked, house the homeless, visit the
imprisoned, visit the sick, and bury the dead. It is on these
criteria in Matthew 25: 31-46, however, that Jesus rests his
definition of salvation. No small thing for those who consider
themselves "religious." --Joan Chittister, OSB
HOW DOES THE PRISON FUND WORK?
Benetvision works with a network of prison chaplains and prison volunteers who make sure our materials are given to those in
prisons or in half-way houses. We also respond to individual requests from women and men in prison.
Because we receive such positive feedback on The Monastic Way, we are especially intent about getting this publication into
the hands of prisoners. Chaplains find it an ideal resource because it is interfaith and good for personal and group reflection.
