Thanks be to God for Reverend King!

On January 15, 1929, a child of God was born.  On April 4, 1968, he was assassinated.

Forty three years later this holy man, Dr. Rev. Martin Luther King, Jr., still speaks to the issues that concern us.

Here you can meet him and his gentle, yet radical approach to loving:

As I rest and dream on his holy feast day, I am going to pray with his Letter from Birmingham Jail. I pray in thanksgiving for this brother of ours who still lives in the truth of Love!

  1. Thanks, Sister Julia, for the connection to the Dr. King video clip. I wish you could have been with me this am at the MLK breakfast at the MPLS Convention Ctr. Fr. McDonough was honored with a Local Legend award. Newark Mayor Corey Booker gave the keynote address. A powerful speaker! He told many self-deprecating stories, the point of them being that we all can add to this forward momentum by our small daily actions. No one is unimportant.

  2. Thanks Sister Patricia,
    Yesterday, when I prayed I remembered Fr. McDonough and an awesome homily I heard by him back when I lived in Minneapolis that reflected on Dr. King’s letter from Birmingham jail. Thanks be to God that there are preachers and teachers all over the place that remind us of the power of Truth and peace.
    Lately, I have been thinking that my most important teachers are the people I least expect, like an encounter with a stranger on the street or a store clerk. God is good!
