Greg Boyle, S.J., is founder of Homeboy Industries, which celebrates its 25th anniversary this year. He is also the author of Tattoos on the Heart: The Power of Boundless Compassion, which made the New York times bestseller list. Homeboy industries serves high-risk, formerly gang-involved men and women with free programs like tattoo removal, legal services, and mental health services. It also operates seven social enterprises that serve as job-training sites, including Homeboy Bakery, Homegirl Café and Homeboy silkscreen and embroidery. We spoke with Fr.
