EC Immigration Round-up

January 13, 2007

As National Migration Week in the U.S. Catholic Church comes to a close, we’ve gathered together our various posts on immigration below.

We were surprised at how few American Catholic blogs even mentioned National Migration Week, especially as it coincided with Pope Benedict XVI’s comments on migration in his January 8th address to the Diplomatic Corps accredited to the Holy See. Those bloggers who did mention and discuss this important week in the U.S. Catholic Church are to be commended for their compassion and attentiveness to our social realities and the corresponding Catholic response to those realities.
