About the video
The Virtual Prayer Vigil for Lamentation and Racial Justice took place on the one month anniversary of the killing of George Floyd.
It was an opportunity for each of us, members of the Ignatian family, to gather for shared prayer across our network to lament and commemorate the Black lives that have been lost due to police brutality and white supremacy in the United States.
In the wake of George Floyd’s death, Pope Francis reminded us that “We cannot tolerate or turn a blind eye to racism and exclusion in any form and yet claim to defend the sacredness of every human life.” With this in mind, during the prayer vigil, anonymous lamentations from across the network were shared to illuminate the many emotions people are feeling in this present moment.
