Open Wide Our Hearts: A pastoral letter against racism

“The Christian community should draw from this central, ongoing encounter with Christ and seek to combat racism with love.” – U.S. bishops, Open Wide Our Hearts

In November 2018, the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops approved a new pastoral letter against racism, Open Wide Our Hearts: The Enduring Call to Love. In the letter, the bishops invite all people of faith to conversion. We are called to open our minds and hearts to Christ’s love for all people and to the experiences of those who have been harmed by the evil of racism.
