Show Notes

Last week, Matthew Wickman, founding director of the BYU Humanities Center, and Patrick Saint-Jean began their discussion of Patrick’s remarkable new book titled The Spiritual Work of Racial Justice: A Month of Meditations with Ignatius of Loyola. They talked about Patrick’s international education, as he is a native of Haiti and has degrees from universities in France, Mexico, and the United States. Patrick also shared insights from his own spiritual life, including the story of his conversion, as a Jesuit Regent. Today, Matt and Patrick will continue their discussion about antiracism as a spiritual journey facilitated by exercises and passages from his book, and will move beyond the page to talk about what we can do to change our perspectives and be active servants for needed spiritual and social change.
