Welcoming the stranger: A biblical approach

Bishop Richard J. Sklba in the "Herald of Hope" column in the Milwaukee Catholic Herald, September 11, 2008, put on his "biblical glasses", concluding,
They should each and all be welcomed. The issue is far greater than simply immigration, but it certainly also includes immigration reform.

A haunting observation came at the end of the discussion: It's always the people in power who get to define precisely who the strangers and aliens are at any given moment!

As we saw in an earlier column in which Archbishop Dolan wrote that International priests, sisters are a blessing, but a blessing the acceptance of which is tightly controlled in the Archdiocese of Milwaukee.
