Statement on Racism

Dear Friends,

I would like to express my deep solidarity and compassion towards those who suffer from the sin of racism, especially towards those in our black community during this time of pain. As I mentioned in a recent homily, racism is incompatible with the Christian faith, and as Christians we have a grave responsibility to ensure that the dignity of every person of every race is upheld and respected at every stage of life. I invite you to read Archbishop Hartmayer's recent statement on racism
