February 1st is the beginning of Black History Month. In order to help mark this month, The Jesuit Post is re-releasing “Know Justice, Know Peace: A Jesuit Antiracism Retreat.” Our re-release of the retreat includes translations of all twelve talks into both Spanish and French. Join us this month as we continue our process of conversion toward antiracism, in our own hearts and in our society at large.
With the racism and violence in our country, the kids are not alright.
If it’s US vs THEM and we are intent on scoring points, we are not making antiracist progress.
Some realities in life can only be known through tears. The participation of Black, Indigenous, and People of Color (BIPOC) members in antiracism is not a hobby or an optional venture: it’s a matter of survival.They do not have the luxury that White people have to retire from the conversation of racism and flee from its painful realities. Matt Briand, SJ, invites us to put aside our fear to weep with those who weep because of racism, for true Christian love suffers along the beloved, and commits to justice.
The Jesuit Post presents “Know Justice, Know Peace: A Jesuit Antiracism Retreat.” In this trailer, Ángel Flores Fontánez introduces you to this four-week retreat which seeks to assist Christians in their growth as antiracist followers of Jesus. It will consist of twelve short talks published in the form of videos and podcasts and they will be published three times a week for a month.
