    Very well said, Your Eminence.
    I would only ask that, when admitting immigrants, we insist that they obey our immigration laws. It is illegal immigration with which we have a problem. That they need shelter is undisputed.

    Your Eminence,
    I’m sure you won’t remember me; we met for two seconds at the North American College in Rome in the spring of AD 2000, when you kindly expressed your wishes that we seminarian visitors from Washington, D.C., had enjoyed our spaghetti. But I have admired you for two decades; I devoured your rector conferences when they were published in Priests for the Third Millennium.
    Anyway, yesterday I found myself crying for joy from one eye, and for sorrow from the other. There I stood, at the rally beginning my 19th March for Life, having just greeted an old friend from a former parish with his 13-year-old son, who was born between my sixth and seventh Marches—and here was the Vice-President of the United States speaking to us in person. The vice-president of the United States IS ONE OF US. And another one of us is “Counselor to the President!” Tears of euphoria. We can reasonably hope for an end to Roe v. Wade!
    One the other hand, right beside me stood, among the fifty people on the bus from my parish, a little group of undocumented Mexican immigrants, marching for life here with me, with us—dedicated pro-lifers whose fruitful presence in our blessed land our pro-life president seems hellbent to do away with. Bitter, miserable tears of fear.
    Anyway, I just want to tell you that, having admired you for two decades, I have never admired you more than during your Sanctuary Homily at the Basilica. I thank you for it, dear brother, from the bottom of my heart.

    Cardinal Dolan,
    What a wonderful, prophetic, life giving homily! At this time, your leadership in calling the Pro Life movement to offer life, love, reconciliation, justice and sanctuary to all who desire and deserve Sanctuary is deeply appreciated and hopefully heeded. Peace and Prayers.
