Talitha Kum – ARISE – As consecrated women we live in solidarity with our brothers and sisters who suffer the consequences of the evil of human trafficking

Talita Kum is an expression that is found in the Gospel of Mark (5, 41).  The words, translated from the Aramaic mean "young girl, I say to you, arise."  These words are addressed by Jesus to the twelve year old daughter of Jairus, who lay apparently lifeless.  After uttering these words, Jesus took her by the hand and she immediately got up and walked.

The worldwide network of consecrated life committed against trafficking of people chose the expression "Talitha Kum" to define their identity.

The expression "Talitha Kum" has the transformative power of compassion and mercy, which awakens the deep desire for dignity and life which may be asleep and injured by the many forms of exploitation.
