Power from the Margins : The Emergence of the Latino in the Church and in Society Paperback / softback

Description

From his roots in Bay City, Texas, to his service as a priest and later bishop of Las Cruces, New Mexico, Ricardo Ramirez's life has unfolded against the struggles, the hopes, and the vibrant faith of the Latino Church.

In Power from the Margins he traces the historic struggle of the Latino Church to find its voice and outlines a road map for the future. His reflections range from the role of the family and the promise of youth, to education, civil rights, and the challenge of immigration.

Probing the profound faith that lives in the Latino Catholic heart, he explores the role of popular piety, devotion to Mary, and "liturgy as fiesta." Concluding with reflections on the impact of Pope Francis, he echoes the Pope, calling on the whole church to come out of our comfort zones, to follow Jesus, and discover the power that lies at the margins.
