Readings for today’s Mass
This morning, the news that usually greets me as i awake included a piece on immigration reform in general; DACA in particular. It was a lively discussion, parts of which angered me, parts of which gave me good stuff to think about.
It was a good reminder to me of the words of Emma Lazarus at the base of the statue in the harbor. We call her Liberty. How eloquent, candid and hopeful.
In light of the current debate, it might be a good time to reflect again on the always-timely words of Emma's immortal poem. If you don't like Emma Lazarus, try the other words above from the law of Moses, from the book we call Holy.
