Several years ago, I came across a prayer by Therese Wilson Favors, director of the Office of Black Catholics, entitled “If you don’t start something, it won’t be nothing.” The main focus of the prayer was that our ancestors in faith and action, such as St. Augustine, St. Monica, Sojourner Truth, Harriet Tubman, and Daniel Rudd (founder of the Black Catholic Congress Movement), responded to God’s call by taking some form of action.
