Tattoos on the Heart by Gregory Boyle

Gregory Boyle is a Jesuit priest who works with gangs in Los Angeles. His efforts led to the founding of Homeboy Industries, an organization that employs gang members. This book tells the story of his 20 years of ministry through heartfelt vignettes of compassion, sorrow and redemption. The author is able to give us hope even as he tells his tales of abuse, neglect and poverty. By the end of the book, it seems clear that many of society's problems could be solved with unconditional love and respect for others. Tattoos on the Heart: The Power of Boundless Compassion gave me a lot of think about.
