Social Justice Lenten Series Unites Voices from Jesuit Network

During the 2018 Lenten season, the Ignatian Solidarity Network will bring together more than forty contributors from the national Jesuit network for a Lenten series titled “Break Forth,” exploring a response to systemic injustice from a Catholic perspective.

Hosted by the Ignatian Solidarity Network, the blog will feature reflections from February 14 (Ash Wednesday) through April 2 (Easter Monday). Uniting individuals engaged in work for immigration advocacy, racial equality, criminal justice reform, alleviation of poverty, and environmental justice, “Break Forth” will offer reflections through the lens of daily readings and Ignatian spirituality.

Contributors to the 2018 series include Jesuit priests, religious sisters, students and alumni of Jesuit institutions, community advocates, grassroots organizers, professors, authors, and social ministry leaders.

Featured writers include:

·       Sr. Patricia Chappell, executive director, Pax Christi USA

·       Cecilia González-Andrieu, professor of theology, Loyola Marymount University

·       José Cabrera, Xavier University student, DACA recipient, and immigration activist

·       Karen Clifton, executive director, Catholic Mobilizing Network
