In his message to our community of faith, Archbishop Gomez reminded us that racism is “a blasphemy against God, who creates all men and women with equal dignity. It has no place in a civilized society and no place in a Christian heart.” We must treat one another with dignity, compassion, love and respect, as children of God, regardless of race, language, or country of origin. We must follow God’s commandment to love one another as he loves us.
As an Archdiocese, we stand committed to continuing to work to end racial injustice in our society and promote peaceful dialogue, discourse and understanding on race and social justice.
