Priest takes reform message to Wall Street, literally

 |  NCR Today

The comical and serious "The Daily Show" will be airing soon an interview with a Catholic priest whose life work has been reforming Wall Street.

"Father Séamus Finn has a mouthful of a title: Director of Justice, Peace and the Integrity of Creation for the Missionary Oblates of Mary Immaculate. What it means is that he works the political and corporate halls of power on ethical causes that always seem to come back to the worlds of big business, finance, and politics. He introduces shareholder resolutions at corporate general assembly meetings, presses causes on Capitol Hill that range from Sri Lankan refugees to strip mining and rights of indigenous peoples in Bangladesh, and shuttles around the world trying to solve or at least get a grip on the root problems."

Can't wait to watch the show.
