+Wilton Channels Pope Francis

Archbishop Wilton Gregory recently gave the invocation at the UNITE Here convention. He chose the occasion to channel Pope Francis. No minimizing the message here. And, he did it with people with ears to hear, the workers who staff the nation's hospitality industry, workers who are too often denied the respect they deserve and whose pay is not commensurate with the work that they do. The alliance of Church and labor is as natural as whipped cream on a sundae and it is good to see an American archbishop cultivating that alliance. Kudos upon kudos to Archbishop Gregory.
