Fr. Hesburgh and Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.

Jan. 15th would have been the 86th birthday of the Reverend Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. who used nonviolence, civil disobedience, and Christian teaching to advance the cause of civil rights in America. Honor his legacy by re-reading his “Letter from a Birmingham Jail” in which he urges actions consistent with Christ’s “extremist” love, and quotes St. Augustine who said that, “An unjust law is no law at all.” Read it in The Atlantic here: Martin Luther King Jr.’s Letter from a Birmingham Jail
