Greetings from NYC! This semester I have the opportunity to work as an intern for the Holy See’s Mission to the United Nations. Each day brings an outstanding opportunity to play a part in the Holy See’s mission for the international community, and I am incredibly grateful to have a window into this work of the Church. It is truly impressive to see how much care the Holy See takes to help guide the course of international policy here at the United Nations. The U.N. certainly provides a good forum for leaders to discuss and resolve what is most pressing for the global community, but after being here only a few weeks, I’ve witnessed how true it is that human politics and policies will always and forever fall short of what they hope –and claim– to achieve. If anything, they highlight how only Christ holds complete answers to the needs and longings of the human family. In essence, the Holy See delegation is here in His stead, giving nations insight into what is truly in their best interest. Seen in this light, the delegation’s work is absolutely indispensable –and it’s a privilege to partake in it.
