Reflections on Baltimore Crisis from Catholic Charities Director

"On Tuesday morning, I walked with Archbishop Lori and Bishop Madden through sections of West Baltimore to visit, support our neighbors and to see firsthand the aftermath of the previous night’s violence and destruction.  As a son of West Baltimore myself, the destruction was heartbreaking, but we also witnessed the power of one at work already. It was very early, yet we saw many people already clearing the debris from sidewalks and streets on every affected street.  Some people were from the neighborhood and others had come from outside the neighborhood to lend a hand. They also helped secure properties that had been broken into. We saw this block after block, street after street…one person, one community, one purpose." Read entire statement.
