"Scripture advises us that we should turn the other cheek to violence. However, my Jesuit training has taught me that in addition to nonviolent resistance we should hit back with love. My beautiful, loving wife, Jessica, and I were blown up in the name of God. Our bodies were torn apart and our psyches shattered in the name of religion. We were casualties of a religious war. At least that’s what we were led to believe." So begins an essay Patrick Downes, a a graduate of the Boston College Lynch School of Education and a Boston Marathon bombing survivor, writes for "C21 Resources," a publication of the The Church in the 21st Century Center (C21 Center).

    The Antidote is Love
    It will always triumph over hate, writes BC alumnus, Boston Marathon bombing survivor Patrick Downes Campus & Community / Alumni - Published on April 12, 2018 Patrick Downes and Jessica Kensky, moments after Downes, running with a prosthetic blade, completed the Boston Marathon on April 18, 2016.

The University community mourns the death of Boston College School of Social Work alumna Christine Loeber MSW'08, executive director of The Pathway Home treatment center for veterans in Yountville, California. Ms. Loeber, who was a gifted student and passionate about serving those suffering from mental illness, was killed on March 9, along with two colleagues at the center, by a veteran who had been treated for post-traumatic stress disorder.

    Victim from Easton 'passionate about helping'
    At the heart of Friday's killings of three women in a hostage standoff at a sprawling California veterans' home was a single terrible irony: The three victims, including an Easton native, had devoted their lives, friends say, to helping the kind of traumatized veteran who authorities say took their lives.
