  20. 20. Dogs run free in Peru. They seem happy and have their own pack language robust with conversation, companionship and a city-wide early morning warning system.
  21. 21. Cats also run free. One park in the center of Lima seemed home to 100 cats. They watched us traipse through their territory with a mix of indifference and mild curiosity.
  22. 22. Peru! Many of the CSJs in Peru talked about the gift of “presence.” We experienced its power time and again as people expressed gratitude that we came as if our presence was some sort of affirmation. Yes, there is great poverty and the challenges that go with it, but the people and the land offer amazing treasures. The people work hard. They smile easily. And they have great faith. With thanks to the Vice Province of Peru for their work and hospitality.
