[NEWS] Meet The Philadelphia Nun Inspired By Pope Francis To Stamp Out Poverty

 

From the Huffington Post

A little over a year ago, Sister Mary Scullion received an unexpected call from the Archdiocese of Philadelphia. The church, she was told, was making plans for the World Meeting of Families -- the international Catholic festival that Pope Francis will visit in the city this week -- and they needed her help.

While the event would in part champion the church’s views on family issues -- including its stances against same-sex marriage, contraception and abortion -- the archbishop of Philadelphia, Charles Chaput, wanted to meet with Scullion to discuss another matter.
