White Catholic priests, sisters, and laypeople could leave these big churches behind. They can try to keep black migrants out of their churches-and there’s a movement to do that, where white priests are at the forefront of resistance to black migration. But the people I focus on are these white missionaries who say, We have to convert these non-Catholics to Catholicism and save our parishes by filling the pews with black converts.

The term black church refers to Protestant churches that currently or historically have ministered to predominantly African American congregations in the United States. While some black churches belong to predominantly African-American denominations, such as the African Methodist Episcopal Church (AME), many black churches are members of predominantly white denominations, such as the United Church of Christ (which developed from the Congregational Church of New England).

These white Catholic missionaries invited black parents to enroll their children in Catholic schools. The Black Power movement inspired black Catholics as they ultimately charged their Church with being a white racist institution. When they did so, black families were introduced to the rituals, prayers, and habits that defined Catholic culture at the time. The Second Vatican Council provided another opportunity for them, as Church leaders from around the world, gathering from 1962 to 1965, opened the doors to sweeping changes not just in Catholic worship but also in the ways in which Catholics engaged the modern world.

This book chronicles the experience of a black man who is a priest in a church that is White. While the book is somewhat dated today, it still captures the racism that is faced by black Catholics in a church that is still mostly White. This book would invite you to ponder on the possibility of being black and Catholic. The book is easy to read and the author is transparent as he shares his feelings. The book needs a revision.

While it presents itself as a wonderful auto biography of Father Lucas, it's value as an expose
of the Roman Catholic church in Americal, is far more the attention getter for those raised
under this denomination, especially if you were not of European descent.

Father Lawrence Lucas is an inspiration for all of us. The book gives insights that are not usually thought of by the average Catholic
