Catholics of African descent all over the nation have been calling for an end to racism and racial justice after the killing of George Floyd. The cry for racial justice is being declared by the Catholic Church leaders as well.
Es un día dedicado a la devoción del amor de Dios hacia la humanidad simbolizado con la representación física del Corazón de Jesús. “Es un amor que supera todo conocimiento”, declara el Papa Francisco en su homilía para la fiesta. “Así de grande es el amor de Dios, como el mar, sin orillas, sin fondo, sin límites”.
Even as dark clouds rained on demonstrations and protests that moved through the Third Ward, a colorful mural at the Catholic Newman Center at Texas Southern University stood as a bright icon of hope calling for an end to all racism and prejudice.
