Tattoos on the Heart is Greg Boyle’s book on “The Power of Boundless Compassion.”
I figured when I was reading it that I would write some heartfelt reflection when I was done, but it speaks for itself. Father G’s work doesn’t need any help from me other than me to say: Buy it. Buy it and read it.
It’ll make you and laugh and cry. And if you know any of the homies, every bit of your soul will smile. It’s a beautiful reminder of the connectedness of humanity that is so easy to forget.
Fr. Greg said when the new Homeboy facility opened that “hope has a new address.”
But really, if you think about it, Homeboy is the address of Heaven on Earth.
P.S. You can buy it HERE!! and help keep Homeboy’s doors open. (Or you can visit and ask for a tour. Ask to see the bakery!)
