The salvation that Jesus’ resurrection brings to all who are oppressed and impoverished, is also meant for the non-human members of our earth family.
Like the disciples on the first Holy Saturday, we must mourn for the victims of each crucifixion and so notice how each injustice is one instance in a cycle of violence.
God is present in all members of creation, no exception, and so every person (no matter their race, class, gender, nationality, disability, etc.) and every creature (no matter their species, intelligence, etc.) is welcome at the table of the Eucharist.

Silence in the face of grave injustice and violence is complicity.
