On Reconciliation and Greater Collaboration Between Hispanic American Catholics and African American Catholics
Addressed to those who serve the approximately 20 million Hispanic Catholics and 3 million African American Catholics in this country, this reflection urges a spirit of pastoral collaboration between these diverse groups in order to "enrich the human family and strengthen the human community." The document explores the common challenges of these groups—historical roots, racial backgrounds and experiences, sharing neighborhoods, extended families, limited socioeconomic resources, common spiritual leaders, contemporary moral leaders—and seeks mutual reconciliation in the areas of race and language. Celebrating more than 50 years of community ministry, the Hispanic American and African American bishops join together to recommend ways to move forward at the national, diocesan, and parish levels. English/Spanish edition includes Spanish text on left-hand pages and English text on right-hand pages.
