 “ … anger is the passion that moves the will to justice” - Saint Thomas Aquinas

  1. Bryan Massingale,professor of theology at Fordham University and the author of Racial Justice and the Catholic Church,recently spoke to Commonweal Magazine about the racist policies and structures in the country and the Church. I invite you to read (or listen to) the interview here.

 “ Your brother’s blood calls to me from below the ground” - Genesis 4:10
