The Spiritual Work of Racial Justice

Play Video

Join CPMC for a presentation by Dr. Patrick Saint-Jean, SJ about racism, including a discussion of his books: The Spiritual Work of Racial Justice and The Crucible of Racism: Ignatian Spirituality and the Power of Hope. Upon coming to the United States to pursue graduate studies and then to embark on training as a Jesuit, Haitian-born Patrick Saint-Jean discovered something he had not known before: racism.

To these experiences, Dr. Saint-Jean applies the basic principles of Jesuit formation―the “discernment of spirits,” the examination of conscience, the imaginative identification with Jesus in his sufferings, death, and resurrection. These principles and practices, he concludes, hold promise of conversion, healing, and resurrection for a church and a society still caught in the crucible of racism.
