Father Greg Boyle

Life as a Human has just published my article "The Jesuit and the Homies: It's all about Kinship." The article is about Father Greg Boyle, a Jesuit priest who started Homeboy Industries, an organization that helps L.A. gang members learn skills and turn their lives around. Father G, as he is usually called by his beloved homies, has recently published a book about his experience in this inspiring ministry; the book is entitled Tattoos on the Heart: The Power of Boundless Compassion; I enthusiastically recommend it.
