February is a special month in the lives of Black Catholics, as we are called to reflect on our rich heritage and our awesome faith. This month commemorates our journey beset by struggles and illuminated by triumphs; it also begins the sacred journey of Lent. February is the month set aside to pay particular attention to the sacrifices and contributions made by Blacks to the fabric of America, indeed, the world. The Roman Catholic Church has also been greatly enriched by the faith and spirituality of those from the African Diaspora.
