What Thanksgiving should really mean in Chicago thanks to Reverend Msgr. Michael M. Boland

Senator James Meeks and Rev. Msgr. Michael M. Boland Chicago Catholic Charities I know it sounds corny from a Chicago Roman Catholic taking a sabbatical, but it did feel great to go back to my roots. I enjoyed my conversation with Reverend Monsignor Michael M. Boland at the Thanksgiving meal for Chicago’s homeless. Rev. Boland is the Administrator, President, and CEO of The Catholic Charities. I am happy to report Rev. Boland agreed to appear on Chicago Clout as a guest. I was going to talk about the political results of the Chicago Catholic Church since Richard Daley became mayor. I do not think Daley has done enough positive, in words or actions, to promote or recognize the important work the Catholic Church. I hope the next Mayor of Chicago understands the importance of all religions and shows thanks for the good deeds. Daley decided to get into the religious business with his “Mayor Daley Meals on Wheels” self-promotions with taxpayer money. I enjoyed this Thanksgiving with this man of faith; Rev. Boland inspired me to get closer to my upbringing. Enjoy this picture of Illinois State Senator James T. Meeks and Reverend Monsignor Michael Boland taken November 25, 2010. Photo by Patrick McDonough
