Rosary Helped To Conquer Racism
Up until my ninth grade year, I had no major problems with black people. In my ninth grade year, however, I got in two fights with them, one of which I was picked up and slammed against the wall and the other, I was punched in the eye. To add insult to injury, I was also humiliated in front of the class by a black teacher and two of the black teachers I had didn't care about what they were teaching. I was like a speck of salt in a pepper shaker. That's how I felt anyway. These things happened to me long before I became Catholic.
When I was in the process of becoming a Catholic about 8 years later, my sponsor was a professor at a black university in town. She had no idea that I had had these problems before. She also invited me to help at the first annual African American Night at church, where they had African and African-American food and a Mass by an African priest.
I had learned how to say the rosary, about a year before when I started my research on Catholicism. Before the Mass at African-American Night, I decided to pray a rosary and all the ill feelings I had had toward blacks that had built up over the years suddenly vanished as if they had never been there before.
