Church Reporter: The spirit of the day was excellent
(POSTED: 10/27/10) The Chicago Catholic Campaign for Human Development (CCHD) served up heavy-duty spirituality in the morning of its annual Justice Day on Saturday, Oct. 2, at Our Lady of Sorrows Basilica, and sometimes raucous explanations of programs it funds in the afternoon.
In the morning Paul Simoneau, from Knoxville, Tenn., quoted Blessed Mother Teresa, Benedict XVI and St. Augustine in an effort to convince the 70 human-developers on hand that they ain’t nothin’ if they ain’t got the spirit, no matter what else they do.
In the afternoon a man from the St. Toribio Center rolled out facts and figures about the plight of the undocumented, at one point telling his listeners he would not tell them how to vote but they should ask him later about it. . . . .
