It’s been a long day and I’m much too tired to go into my whole Catholic back story again. Let me simply say that my relationship with the Catholic Church is long and complicated but it continues to improve, especially when I hear stories like this one about Catholic hospitals supporting healthcare reform…

“We are trying to respect other people’s conscience and views” said Carol Keehan, chief executive of the Catholic Health Association. “… We think this bill is a good first step to health care reform.”

Amen, Carol.

Stay strong.

P.S. This doesn’t hurt either.
