Open Wide Our Hearts: The Enduring Call to Love

A Pastoral Letter Against Racism

In 2018, for the first time in nearly forty years, the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops published a pastoral letter against racism. Open Wide Our Hearts is a call to a humble and expansive love that respects human dignity and unites us all in Christ. The work of racial healing is a journey, not an event. In response to the turmoil in our country, now is a good time for personal reflection and attentive discussion and prayers for spiritual renewal or reconciliation.
