This is not intended to be a debate about whether the team logo should be changed or not, or whether the baseball team should be renamed or not, or whether the logo/name is a sign of racism or not.
What it is intended to be is seen in the picture above: love of country over tension in our country.
In a similar way, the Holy Cross can be seen as an instrument of torture for hardened criminals, or an instrument of salvation for triumphant souls. As Catholics, we rejoice in the glory of the Lord as we face the crucifix and all of the good that it beholds.
As you reflect on the picture above, and the striking contrasts on display, remember the Holy Cross. Just as there was victory in the Holy Cross, we have trust and confidence that our country will prevail over injustices and the violence that grasps it.
