Injustice is basically unfairness which is propelled by selfishness in that one only upholds what he/she considers to be of benefit to them at a given time. Where there is injustice there exist neither integrity nor sincerity nor uprightness and in fact Isaiah 59:14-15 stresses that God is not pleased by injustice. No wonder Mary Ward the foundress of the Loreto sisters would perceive in the Just soul the capacity to ‘be as you appear and appear as you are.’

Many are the times that we engage in talking about injustices in the society but mainly referring to the injustices that are practiced against us. We rarely seek to analyze what part we play in these injustices or how we contribute to them.
