remembering and asking forgiveness

On Good Friday an ecumenical group walked together down town as a modern day Way of the Cross. There were 9 stops along the way including, US Federal Court, Bus Stop, State Capitol, Dane County Jail.  At each stop there was reading, prayer and song.  One stop was the Historical Museum and one of the prayers was:

History is replete with examples where the threat of violence or fear has resulted in the standardization of prejudice and hostility--the forced relocation of Native American populations, the internment of Japanese Americans, the segregation of African American communities, the incarceration of minorities, and the ongoing deportation of immigrants and exclusion of refugees.  All responded:

Lord, forgive us, for we know not what we do

The walk was sponsored by Madison Catholic Worker
