Abstract

Professor Cara H. Drinan hosted a luncheon colloquy with students on Feb. 26 titled “Criminal Justice and Issues of Poverty, Race, and Human Dignity.” Speaking from her own experience of Catholicism, Drinan offered several examples of how the Bible and Catholic social teaching may intersect with criminal justice policy. Drinan addressed the admonition to love one’s enemies, the concept of making a preferential option for the poor, and the charge to see the spirit of God in all human beings, including the most marginalized among us.
