In the Boston Globe, Cardinal Sean O'Malley on the need to act justly to immigrants and refugees. This is, for Catholics, a matter of both history and theology. A splendid essay by someone who has spent his entire life ministering to migrant communities. It is also worth reading Cardinal Sean's blog which begins with a brief account and several photos of a meeting he hosted with some of Boston's Muslim leaders.

So, the USCCB just sent out this "Action Center" alert calling on President Trump to sign executive orders relating to religious liberty. I hope he does so. The question: Did my "Action Center" alert on the executive orders that pertain to the 11 million undocumented, now threatened with a hugely increased deportation force, get lost in the mail? Yeesh.Time for bishops to withhold their tax or some heads to roll. The fifth floor is a Francis-free zone and it is a scandal.
