Patrick Saint-Jean is a Jesuit Regent. A native of Haiti, he has degrees from universities in France and Mexico, a postdoc from the University of Chicago, and he completed his theological studies at Catholic Theological Union in Chicago. Currently teaching psychology at Creighton University, he is also the author of a remarkable new book titled The Spiritual Work of Racial Justice: A Month of Meditations with Ignatius of Loyola. The book, which we discuss today, explores antiracism as a spiritual journey, a transformation of personal attitudes that will lead to better social policies and more opportunities for flourishing for all of God’s children.
This is part one of a two-part episode with Patrick. Please tune in next week for part two of our conversation.
