A DREAM COME TRUE: MIGRANTS AND THE KINGDOM OF GOD

Here’s how this week’s arts and culture column begins:

Father Raniero Alessandrini, CS, has ministered to immigrants in Chicago, Guadalajara, Vancouver, and LA for more than 60 years. His recently published booklet, “A Dream Come True: Migrants and the Kingdom of God,” outlines the theological underpinnings and sets forth the vision of his life’s work. Self-published by Father Alessandrini, the booklet is available in LA at no cost at St. Peter Italian Church (1039 N. Broadway St., Los Angeles 90012).

Father Alessandrini is a member of the Congregation of the Missionaries of St. Charles Scalabrinians (also known as the Missionaries of St. Charles Borromeo), an order founded by Blessed John Baptist Scalabrini in 1887 with a specific charism of serving migrants and refugees.

      Exactly!

  2. What a lovely tribute to Father Alessandrini. As I read your column, I kept thinking how being friends with immigrants has made my life so rich and happy. The happiest days of my life were when I lived in Chicago, having so much fun and joy with my friends who came from all over the world. I am now an immigrant in Brazil and I am thankful to the people who have accepted me.
