It's National Black Catholic History Month
Yes, today is All Saints Day, a Holy Day of Obligation to Catholics. Today is also the first day of National Black Catholic History Month.
That means very little to most people, but it means a lot to me.
Surveys indicate that there might be about 275 million Catholics of African descent in the world; I am one.
I'll be posting throughout the month about black (mostly American, I think) Catholics and the black Catholic experience.
