A Lenten Journey: Explore Anti-Racism as a Spiritual Practice – Live Zoom Presentation
Patrick Saint-Jean, SJ, PSYD
March 23, 2022
Patrick Saint-Jean, SJ, will discuss his book, The Spiritual Work of Racial Justice: A Month of Meditations with Ignatius of Loyola, which adapts the Spiritual Exercises to the challenges of racial justice. Fr. Saint-Jean invites everyone to prayerful reflection on painful examples of racism from the United States, other countries and his own life as a man of color as he navigates our racially polarized world. In this hybrid event, live from the College of St. Mary in Omaha, Nebraska, Fr. Saint-Jean will take a deep dive into the themes of his book.
Lent beckons us on a journey of self-examination with and in God, who mercifully brings new life into all our hopeless places. Cranaleith is partnering with the Institute Office of Anti-Racism & Racial Equity of the Sisters of Mercy of the Americas to invite you to grow in awareness of racial bias and the need for racial justice in our world.
A familiarity with the text will be of great benefit to appreciate this presentation.
