The Catholic Feminist

Aug 12, 2020

When I first read Sister Desiré's public letter on being the only black Felician sister, I was struck by one line in particular: that she felt invisible.

As Catholic feminists, we know that we don't want a single one of our sisters to not feel seen, known, encouraged, and loved. So I invited Sr. on the show to walk us through why she feels that way, how we can be better listeners to one another, and how we can acknowledge pain while searching for solutions within the racial justice movement. We also discuss her love for dance and how she uses this hobby as a beautiful, awe-inspiring prayer. This episode is perfect for you if you've been struggling to understand why some of our sisters who identify as black are upset, and want to have a conversation about it in a way that points towards Christ. Enjoy!
