Telling Comment About a Priest
I spoke yesterday with a leading nun in San Antonio about immigration in a border community farther upstream. She said to work with the local Methodist pastor since the local Roman Catholic priest in that town was obnoxious and difficult to be around. The nun said, "I think that is why he was sent to the border."
Growing up in Texas and working with a variety of religious groups in Texas, I know several denominations treat the border as if it were the Siberia of Texas - a place to send wayward people so they cause less damage. I am trying to say good things about the border because in some ways this area is the center of mission in Texas.
