Grace & Bias: Theological Reflection on Racism

About this webinar


Racism is a moral and spiritual problem. Jesus Christ made it clear that all kinds of vices flow from the human heart. (Mark 7: 20 – 23) If we do not seek to convert our own hearts as well as the hearts of others in our efforts to overcome racism, then we will be left with “tolerance”  between the races and not the real “reconciliation and healing” that is truly needed. Pastoral leaders need to first deal with what might be contained in their own hearts regarding racism,  before seeking to help others to overcome racism. This Theological Reflection on Racism by Bishop Fabre, Diocese of Houma-Thibodaux, will make use of sacred scripture to guide a spiritual reflection on how we can proceed to overcome racism in our own hearts and in the hearts of others. 

Learning outcomes: 

Participants will: 

1. Learn how racism is a spiritual problem; 

2. Learn why conversion of hearts is needed and how to address the conversion of their  own heart as necessary regarding racism prior to seeking to assist others with a  conversion of heart; and 

3. Understand the spiritual challenge that the Catholic Christian faith places before us in  our response to racism. 

Reflection Questions: 

1. What do I understand as the abundant life that Jesus came to give us?

2. Do I truly consider others equal to me? 

3. What flows from my own heart with regard to racism and race hatred?
