The nuns are back on the bus, this time riding for immigration reform. My story is here, but just as interesting is that they seem to be drawing support from their erstwhile antagonists, the bishops. Trenton’s Bishop David O’Connell, pictured (here), gave them a blessing and had strong words about supporting immigration.
I saw Bishop O’Connell earlier this year at a campus ministry conference, and heard him speak a bit. Seems like a good guy. He wasn’t shy about responding to the Fugee fiasco.

Nothing in Iowa this year, unlike last year.
