My heart swells with pride and tears rim my eyes as I watch Cardinal McCarrick address a crowd of 200,000 in Washington, D.C. I am not bilingual and I cannot understand what he is saying, but the ear of my heart tells me that he is speaking with passion and he is being well received by this crowd. It is great to see clergy all across this nation mobilize on behalf of our immigrant brothers and sisters. “Do not wrong or oppress the resident alien, the orphan, or the widow,” says the prophet Jeremiah.
This is day that is surprising the pundits. It is truly wonderful what is happening on the mall in Washington. This is truly a holy week. This is the finest example of the Incarnation of Jesus Christ in our midst. You too can be a part of immigrant justice by visiting the April 10 website.
