U.S. Catholic Bishops Speak Against Racism
"The challenge now is to get every Catholic involved in combating racism where it exists. As followers of Jesus Christ, it goes against our faith to sit on the sidelines and do nothing to stamp out the sin of racism. Let us lead by example in eliminating this sin that divides the human family. May this collection of articles help to open our minds and encourage our hearts to take action so that all will be free."
From the Preface by Most Rev. George V. Murry
An excellent collection of articles written by bishops on racism. Developed by the U.S. bishops' Committee on African American Catholics, the volume begins with the Oral Report from the Committee to the bishops at their 1998 General Meeting. Articles are arranged into sections on Catholic social teaching, Catholic Expressions/Activities, Dr. Martin Luther King Celebration, Hate Crimes, Healing, and Ecumenical/Interfaith Issues. Preface by Most Rev. George V. Murry. A long-awaited reader ideal for class and group use.
