Anti-Semitism, anti-Judaism and the Catholic Church: How Acknowledging Our Past Can Help Us Challenge and Heal Hate in Today’s World
Sunday, Oct. 6th, 2:30 p.m. to 4:30 p.m. The program will be held at St. Therese Catholic Church 300 Mildred Ave NW, Albuquerque, NM 87107.
About the Speaker
Michaela Bruzzese has taught at St. Pius X High School since 2012, specializing in the areas of Catholic Social Teaching, Church History and Sacraments.
Understanding and learning from our Church’s history of anti-Semitism and anti-Judaism can prove
a key component in our ability to address hate and bias in today’s world. In addition to understanding
our Church’s history, and how these attitudes contributed to the events that led to the Holocaust,
the session will also examine the tremendous progress in Jewish-Catholic relations brought by
Vatican II, and how the current partnership between Jews and Catholics can address increasing
incidence of biased speech and actions in today’s world. Finally, attendees will learn different tools
with which to address and analyze incidents of hate, such as the Pyramid of Hate and the “Pyramid of
Love,” a unique Catholic resource that can help us to actively construct a just and loving world.
