Katie, I'm not sure if you or others here have read the USCCB's Strangers No Longer, or Immigration and the Next America: Renewing the Sould of Our Nation by Archbihop Gomez. Both discuss the rights of immigrants (as flowing from the right to life) and the rights of sovereign nations. If you have, I'd be interested in your commets.

It's been a while since I've read these two resources, but I recall being especially impressed with the book by Arch. Gomez. He covers a lot of ground in a short work. His main thesis is that immigration is about more than immigration; it transcends politics. It is about faith and the soul of America, which has lost its sense of having a Spanish and Catholic heritage.

Having said that, his practical commentary (and that of Strangers No Longer) is focused on the needs of immigrants. Both of course suggest solidarity with immigrants and offer pathways to legalization. But as for addressing the needs of a nation, Perhaps it is assumed that the nation will take of looking out for itself. I wonder if there is a source someone out there could suggest.

"We can mistreat a person in the very act of bestowing a good on her. How? It happens when our in our "charity" we treat another as the object of our condescenion and beneficence, rather than as a subject."

How easily, in the name of truth, we can objectify a person.

Von Hidebrand's The Heart has had a profound effect on me. Philosophically, he bridges the gap between love in the will and love in the emotions. Clearly we cannot manufacture feelings of love for someone, "the concrete person before us." Yet we must love that person; and perhaps at specific moments, that love can be manifest only in willed acts. But this condition should be pedagogical, rather than normative. The is key.

Stay informed
