Nun Thanks Bishop

Sister Doreen Glynn, Justice Coordinator for the Sisters of St. Joseph Albany Province, has a letter in today’s Times Union in which she thanks Bishop Howard J. Hubbard for his leadership:
Just hours after learning the sad news that the Vatican has ordered the Leadership Conference of Women Religious, the organization representing 80 percent of U.S. Catholic nuns, to reform itself and place itself under the orders of an archbishop and two bishops, I read about our own beloved Bishop Howard J. Hubbard using his time and energy to speak on behalf of the poor.
Thank you, Bishop Hubbard, for giving me hope. Thank you, Times Union, for your coverage of our bishop addressing a panel of Senate Democrats about the gap between the rich and the poor in the state and nation ("Hubbard: Pay gap threatens social justice," April 19). Along with other faith leaders, Bishop Hubbard was advocating for raising the minimum wage.
The entire letter is available here.
