Please join Mary Earle and Rosalyn Collier for “Forgive Everyone Everything.” Using the book by this title, written by Gregory Boyle, SJ, with art by Fabian Debora, the class will explore the topic of forgiveness through meditations, art, reflection and quiet prayer. Fr. Boyle’s ministry to ex-gang members as they rebuild their lives grounds his meditations. The class builds on the Fall 2022 class on compassion, though that is not a requirement for enrollment. These vignettes take the reader to the lived reality of those caught by gang violence, and those who desire to find new ways to live. As we move from Epiphany to Lent, this book will help us remember that we are called to respect the dignity of every human being.
