When Mary’s Pence staff and board congratulated current board member Sr. Barbara Battista, SP, for being featured in National Catholic Reporter’s Global Sister Report on May 27, 2021, for her work to accompany 2 men to their federal executions, Sr. Barbara’s response was one simple line. “So many ways these days to extend love, to work for justice,” she wrote.
