We often hear people talk about the “sin of racism. ” Books and articles describe racism as America’s original sin. We identify racism with events and actions like slavery or Jim Crow laws. But it’s still corroding our nation.
We are Franciscan Media, a sponsored ministry of the Franciscan friars of St. John the Baptist Province. We strive to inspire a loving world that embraces the Franciscan spirit of harmony, joy, and simplicity. May our resources renew your spirit as we share God’s love in the spirit of St. Francis.
