For the second time in two weeks New York Times columnist Nicholas D. Kristof has singled out the inspirational Christian works being done by largely unknown women religious and priests in some of the most impoverished areas of the world. His overall point in a column published April 17th and his newest column, published May 2nd, in The New York Times is this: if the top leadership of the church has strayed from its roots, much of its base is still deeply inspiring.
Thank you, Nicholas, for sharing with your readers what NCR readers have known for so many years: Our church is filled with men and women, lay, religious and clergy, who are living selfless lives on behalf of countless marginalized and vulnerable human beings.
