Radical Spread of Love

As the tragic events unfolded in Charlottesville, Virginia, on Saturday, I prayed for the respect for the dignity of every person and the radical spread of love to overcome hate.

The violence and ideology of neo-Nazis, the Ku Klux Klan and other white supremacist groups have no place in our society. My series of tweets, while not a reflection of all I feel in my heart, do mirror my silent prayers:

“Acts of hatred by neo-Nazis and their kind such as occurred in #Charlottesville are unacceptable and unAmerican.

I pray for greater wisdom & kindness in our nation, respect for the dignity of every person & the radical spread of love to overcome hate.

I ask the @univofdayton community to join me in these hopes & prayers.”

As we welcome new students and families to our campus this week, let’s remember our mission as a Catholic, Marianist university.

We build community.
