Reflections on the Journey of Puerto Rican Migrants
Author: Joseph P. Fitzpatrick
Pubpsher: Rowman & Littlefield
Joseph P. Fitzpatrick, S.J. -- priest, internationally-acclaimed scholar, activist--was intensely involved in the ongoing studies of the Puerto Rican people, their culture, and their problems as migrants in the U.S. mainland.The Stranger Is Our Own contains Fitzpatrick's personal memoir, as well as a collection of articles, papers, lectures and talks that chronicle his "bittersweet journey" with Puerto Rican migrants. A consultant to religious, political, education and social leaders on the issues of migration, assimilation, inter-group relations and social justice, Father Fitzpatrick helped shape governmental and Church policies at both the local and national level. He continued his active involvement until his death in 1995 at the age of 82.
The author presents an analysis of each one of the parables, taking into account the context in which Jesus presented the parable, then how it was understood and used by the people of that day, and finally, how we can follow its teachings within our own context. Dr. Fricke is a retired missionary who taught in Latin American seminaries for many years, and wrote this book in Spanish.
This book is the fruit of holy hours and meditations on the readings for Sunday Mass and Holy Days throughout the year. The author attempts to portray the humanity of the Biblical family. The Gospel of Matthew paints a portrait of Jesus which is refreshingly human. We get to experience a culture and faith journey in a way that comforts us almost 2000 years later. Our questions and issues of today do have answers and consolation from a man who was very much alive and in his divinity offered us salvation.
