I grew up in Denver Colorado in a pious Catholic family, the middle of three children.  Both of my parents considered the possibility of entering religious life when they were young people, so the thought of a priestly or religious vocation for us children was always present alongside that of the married state.  I attended the parish school, and then went on to an all-boys Catholic preparatory school run by the Jesuit Fathers.  It was there that I first met religious order priests, and it was there in high school that I first seriously considered becoming a priest and a religious myself.

“Children’s lives are at stake.” These poignant words were written by Jeanne Atkinson; CLINIC’s Executive Director, in an article posted to Roll Call last month, and they could not be more accurate. In 2014, our nation witnessed an unprecedented increase in the immigration of unaccompanied migrant children and families fleeing persecution in Honduras, Guatemala, and El Salvador. On July 7, 2015, a hearing was held by the U.S.

I don’t understand all the paperwork, but I trust God and I trust my lawyer will do a good job representing me.
