COVID-19 and its effects have changed our lives. In addition, the issues of racism and racial justice have risen to the top of our collective consciousness. As people of faith, we are called to prayer and action. Many people are facing fear, unemployment, anger, and confusion. I am here with you through all of this, with resources and to be a constant reminder that God is always with us.  God has not and will not abandon us.  As our other securities in life change, let us remember that one thing that never changes is God’s presence in our lives.  May these resources be anchors of hope for you.  May they help you cling to the Promises of God in these unsettling times.  Know of my prayers for you and your communities.  If you have additional resources that I can include, please email us.

Stand Firm with an Open Heart Prayer

An Examine for Racial Justice – by To Go Forth – a blog from the USCCB, Department of Justice, Peace & Human Development – inspired by Pope Francis.

  • Have I fully loved God and fully loved my neighbor as myself?
  • Have I caused pain to others by my actions or my words that offended my brother or my sister?
  • Have I done enough to inform myself about the sin of racism, its roots, and its historical and contemporary manifestations?  Have I opened my heart to see how unequal access to economic opportunity, jobs, housing, and education on the basis of skin color, race, or ethnicity, has denied and continues to deny the equal dignity of others?
  • Is there a root of racism within me that blurs my vision of who my neighbor is?
  • Have I ever witnessed an occasion when someone “fell victim” to personal, institutional, systematic or social racism and I did or said nothing, leaving the victim to address their pain alone?
  • Have I ever witnessed an occasion when someone “fell victim” to personal, institutional, systematic or social racism with me inflicting the pain, acting opposite of love of God and love of neighbor?
  • Have I ever lifted up and aided a person who “fell victim” to personal, institutional, systematic or social racism and paid a price for extending mercy to the other? How did I react? Did my faith grow? Am I willing to grow even more in faith through my actions?

Litany for Racial Justice: A litany recited at the “Prayer Service for Racial Justice” by John Carroll University Campus Ministry on June 2, 2020

  • Please respond: “You are a child of God.” See this link for full litany. 
  • Leader: We remember all who have been killed in senseless violence and we respond together
  • Response: You are children of God

Overwhelmed No More: ONLINE RETREAT

How do I go deeper when the chaos competes for my attention?
How do I settle my scattered mind and hold on to the promises of God during this time?

I spent the last few years praying and asking God to help me answer these questions even before the pandemic began! This past fall,  I created a six-week online retreat to help people create space to intentionally pause, pray, discern, and embrace a path of abundant hope, peace, and purpose.  You can join the self-paced retreat at anytime.  More information here.
