A conversation with Clayton Sinyai of the Catholic Labor Network.
We feature two online conversations this week: the first is with Clayton Sinyai, right, a member of the Catholic Labor Network and the director of strategic campaigns for the Amalgamated Transit Union. Speaking at a conference on Caritas in Veritate held at Princeton University, Clayton explored what the pope’s latest encyclical has to say about the labor movement. We also spoke with Archbishop Joseph Mitsuaki Takami of Nagasaki, who was visiting New York to attend the nonproliferation deliberations at the United Nations. The archbishop brought with him a scorched remnant of a statue of Mary that graced the main altar of Nagasaki’s Urakami Cathedral before it was destroyed by the atomic bomb. The archbishop was an unborn child in his mother’s womb when the second atomic bomb obliterated his hometown.
