Profound Gratitude for an Anonymous Gift

As an immigration attorney at CLINIC, I represent hundreds of religious men and women (priests, brothers, sisters, and other religious workers) from all over the world.  I feel privileged to be a part of a team assisting these modern day disciples called to ministry in the United States.  The diversity and determination of these individuals amazes me; not only where they are from, but also the services they perform and how they were called to religious life.
