Great News: If you can't attend our conference "Erroneous Autonomy: The Dignity of Work" in person, it will be livestreamed. You can access the livestream here. The event begins at 2 p.m.

In the Chicago Tribune, Cardinal Blase Cupich writes passionately about the need to protect the Dreamers, those young immigrants who were brought here as children and who qualified for DACA.Why can't the USCCB issue something with this force?

The Trump Transition Team issued this statement in honor of National Migration Week. Oh, excuse me. The statement came from the President and Vice President of the USCCB. I call readers' attention to the third paragraph which seems to suggest that our nation has overcome its bigotry towards migrants. It is true that Italians are no longer subject to restrictive immigration laws as they were in the 1920s, but I know plenty of Latino and African immigrants who still encounter bigotry.

One thing about Bishop Robert Lynch, who wrapped up his blog now that he is stepping down as the Bishop of St. Petersburg with one final post: The man has exquisite taste! Bishop Lynch has been an outstanding local bishop and a voice of sanity within the conference he once led as General Secretary. I was honored to get a nice shout out from him. Ad multos annos, Bishop Lynch!
