The Bishop's column

Bishop Hubbard's latest column in The Evangelist is here. In it, he mentions what might be the major purpose of this blog:
Financial contributions are not the only way to assist those in need. We can also do so by advocating with our elected officials, letting them know -- through letters, emails, phone calls or personal visits -- of our support for or opposition to particular public policies that impact the poor.

Two points to make here. The first is that God must really love the Albany diocese to let us have this wonderful man as our bishop. We support his efforts. And second, if you don't subscribe to The Evangelist, get a subscription. It is a wonderful resource, and the printed paper has so much more than the on-line version. It's no wonder they win all those awards from the Catholic press association.
