Bipartisan senators honor Catholic sisters


A group of female senators from both parties earlier this week announced a resolution to honor Catholic sisters who have served in American churches since the founding of the country, according to this story in Roll Call.
Here's what the signatories wrote about the sisters, in a "Dear Colleague" letter:

They have answered the call of the Second Vatican Council to ‘seek justice in the world’ and have led to the vital mission of teaching our children, caring for the sick, feeding our hungry, sheltering the homeless, leading major institutions, demanding corporate responsibility and fighting for policies that promote human dignity.
