This study attends closely to the faith and experiences of black Catholics. Two major themes emerged from semi-structured interviews with fifteen black Catholics in a midwestern u.s . city: First, participants experience the Catholic church simultaneously as both a loving home and a significant source of suffering because of racism. Second, participants engage in forgiveness of racism, which involves working for racial transformation of church and society. The analysis suggests a need for corporate conversion in that racism remains a major and pernicious barrier to the u.s . Catholic church’s ability to serve as a sacrament of God’s love.
