#17 - March for Black Life (28 August 2020): Reflections

September 2, 2020

Thomas, Monica, James, and Jacob (from Catholic Social Action) talk about our experience at the March on Washington for Racial Justice and Police Reform. We discuss the complexity of the BLM, the wonderful friends who marched with us, the power of public prayer, the legacy of MLK, and the futility of expecting racial justice from liberals and centrists.

We didn't get a Latin Mass in Washington, but friends in Detroit marked the day by hearing a votive TLM with the intention of ending the sin of racism.
