Over the past few days, our nation has been forced to confront the evil effects of racism. The violence in Charlottesville did not develop in that moment or in one day. Rather the seeds of Saturday’s tragedy had been planted long before, going back far in the history of our nation.  We can look upon last Saturday’s tragedy with a sense of great sadness and defeat.  Or we can look at these events with the vision the Paschal Mystery brings us - a vision of healing, a vision of new life.
