September 14, 2023 — Fr. Chris Kellerman, SJ, is the author of “All Oppression Shall Cease: A History of Slavery, Abolitionism, and the Catholic Church” (Orbis, 2022), which provides a rigorously researched, era-by-era history of the Catholic Church’s teachings and actions related to slavery.

The book gives a detailed account of the Church’s slaveholding past while issuing a call for the Church to take the necessary steps to reconcile with its history.

Fr. Kellerman is also the brand-new Secretary of Justice and Ecology for the Jesuit Conference of Canada and the United States. He talked with his colleague and guest host MegAnne Liebsch about the book and the Office of Justice and Ecology’s advocacy work on a wide range of pressing social issues.
