In light of the tragic loss of Michael Brown and the continued tension in Ferugson, Missouri, we wanted to offer a few resources from Catholic and social justice contexts that relate to the issues of racism and violence that our country is struggling to make sense of right now.   This list is not exhaustive – in fact, our hope is that you might share your own resources (articles, exercises, toolkits, book titles, etc.) so that we can add them and develop a more robust collection.

We also invite the Ignatian family to join in prayer for Michael Brown, his family and for all those impacted by the loss of his life and the subsequent tension that individuals in Ferguson and across the country have felt in relation to racism and violence in our nation.  We pray that as a society we can continue to strive to be more inclusive and seek nonviolent resolutions to the issues that challenge us.

Eternal rest grant unto Michael, O Lord.
And let perpetual light shine upon him.

Amen.
