The following post, written by The Rev. Robert A. Franek, is a part of Politicus Policy Discussion, in which writers draw connections between real lives and public policy.

The rescinding of DACA last Tuesday put some 800,000 youth and young adults on a countdown clock with Congress. Without swift action from lawmakers in the House and the Senate to protect Dreamers, families will be torn apart, employers will lose workers, and students will be unable to complete their degree programs.

This is an untenable place for our country to be in. We cannot simply send Dreamers back to a country they never knew as their home. It is not only impractical and economically detrimental to the country, it is morally reprehensible and indefensible.

Join with others and  become concerned about Human Trafficking. Let us be a voice for those who cannot speak for themselves.

All the above are absolute and added to the above is the venerability of many to become victims of “Human Trafficking”.  Learn more about the Dream Act https:///www.nilc.org/issues/immigration-reform-and executive actions/dreamact/dream-act-2017-summary and faq/


Sisters of the Blessed Sacrament Leadership Team’s Response To
The Deadly Incident in Charlottesville, VA on August 12, 2017

August 15, 2017

As Sisters of the Blessed Sacrament, our mission calls us “. . . to challenge all forms of racism, as well as, the other deeply rooted injustices in the world today.”
In light of this challenge,” we are opposed to white nationalism and its promotion of violence against other races. We believe that racism is wrong in principle, morally and socially and must be eradicated not only from our institutions but from the very heart of our nation. We call upon religious leaders of all faiths to encourage their congregations to challenge racism.


“Ours is the Spirit of the Eucharist, the total Gift of Self.”

“If we live the Gospel, we will be people of justice and our lives will bring the good news to the poor.”
Saint Katharine Drexel.
