Carlos Bristled

The interview with Bishop Carlos Sevilla, S.J. in Yakima was very spiritual and uplifting. I have known Carlos since he was a teacher when I was in high school. Church law now has him retiring after reaching age 75. I found him to be vigorous and energetic with his trademark wicked sense of humor as usual. The Yakima diocese is one of the poorest in the country with a large population of migrant workers moving from field to field trying to make enough to feed their families. Many of them are undocumented, and have become the backbone of the local economies. Carlos bristled at the misuse of the words “social justice” by the right who, in actuality, have no idea what the words really mean.
