Cardinal DiNardo appointed to an appropriate post

Cardinal DiNardo appointed to an appropriate post June 13, 2008

My archbishop, Daniel Cardinal DiNardo, was appointed by Pope Benedict XVI this week to the Pontifical Council for the Pastoral Care of Migrants and Itinerant Peoples.  This is rather appropriate given Cardinal DiNardo’s strong solidarity with the migrant communities in the Archdiocese of Galveston-Houston.  I have blogged previously on Cardinal DiNardo’s efforts to change unjust immigration law in the United States.  I do not think it too much of a stretch to say that this appointment is a papal validation of Cardinal DiNardo’s pastoral and social work.
