  • Day 44: Building the Beloved Community | Ignatian Solidarity Network
    races Not all of you are clean Jesus tells the disciples gathered before the Last Supper knowing that one of his closest friends would betray him Reflecting on this vivid Gospel reading and on racial injustice in my community I identify more easily as one who is not clean Over the course of my life I have struggled to open my eyes to the sin of racism with limited success I have been fortunate to be surrounded by people who have challenged me to see this sin in our midst today and to respond with love to the dehumanizing impacts of racism I d like to think of myself as Simon Peter who doesn t understand the magnitude of what Jesus is doing But in reality white Americans are more like Judas who received 30 silver pieces to betray Jesus In spite of the pain and suffering caused by racism too many white Americans are complicit to the economic and systemic benefits it affords us It is easy to be complicit if our faith communities and friends do not include the perspectives of people of color In a city as diverse as New York it is incredible to me how homogenous Catholic communities are Thank God for Pope Francis who models the love and inclusiveness to which God calls us in his annual Holy Thursday foot washing ceremony Pope Francis welcomes all to experience the tenderness and love of God women Muslims refugees prisoners and a diversity of races Jesus s call in the Gospel challenges us to build this inclusive Kingdom of God in our home school place of employment family and faith community I am committed to being an ally to people of color in actively working to undo racism My wife and I have found a diverse Catholic faith community that challenges us to see the Gospel through their eyes We have built friendships with families in our neighborhood from other countries and cultures We have sought out schools for our daughters that embrace and celebrate this diversity And still there is much more to do As I have done for you Jesus tells the disciples you should also do Reflection Questions Have you seen instances of an intentionally diverse Catholic community What sets them apart from other communities What would it look like to widen your circle of familiarity About the Author Nick Napolitano is the assistant for social ministries for the Maryland and USA Northeast Provinces of the Society of Jesus His wife Michelle and daughters Grace and Hannah live in the Bronx Facebook 112 Google 0 Linkedin 0 Twitter 112 Tags Lent2016 racial justice http ignatiansolidarity net wp content uploads 2016 03 3829975991 fd65b4a79e o jpg 803 1200 Nick Napolitano http ignatiansolidarity net wp content uploads 2013 04 ISN Color Transparent Large png Nick Napolitano 2016 03 23 16 39 36 2016 03 22 20 56 55 Day 44 Building the Beloved Community You might also like Day 41 Anoint with Love and Liberation

    The sordid history extends from redlining to banks and insurance companies denying economic opportunities to certain geographical areas that had undesirable racial concentrations to predatory high interest subprime mortgaging These secret deals have handed over too many neighborhoods and cities to the bondage of economic disparity In the past years we have seen more books and articles dedicated to exploring the history of systematic economic oppression along racial lines Books like Not In My Neighborhood How Bigotry Shaped a Great American City by Antero Pietila have helped me better understand the social construction of the neighborhoods I walk and drive through as a resident of Baltimore City Ta Nehisi Coates s article The Case for Reparations weaves together this heinous history of wealth stalling and depletion and connects it to those living today Like Isaiah those who care about justice must become advocates and speak to the weary and set our faces like flint Though our cities have been and still are places of deceit and treachery we must face it head on call it what it is and put events into motion that will bring true transformation We have been betrayed and have been the betrayers but God is compassionate with our errors and offers us answers But are we willing to look Reflection Questions When have you asked the question Why when faced with economic disparity in your neighborhood community or city How have you actively played a role in helping to bring justice to the landscape of your neighborhood community or city About the Author Justin White teaches theology and serves as Director of Community Service and Outreach at Cristo Rey Baltimore a Catholic co educational college preparatory school empowering students in Baltimore City to succeed in college work and life Facebook 58 Google 0 Linkedin 4
