How cool is that?
Also he is helping Mother Teresa's nuns to continue serving the homeless despite the City of Miami's recent interference:
After the City of Miami issued a violation to the Missionaries of Charity for “operating a business without a license,” a lawyer providing legal support said he is confident the city will withdraw the notice.Now this is a case where Tom literally is on the side of the angels.
“The city has full knowledge” of the sisters' work and has given them “numerous approvals over the years,” attorney Tom Equels told CNA April 4.
“Sometimes they forget so I’m going to do my best to remind them.”
On March 20, inspector Cornellius Pierre of the City of Miami issued a notice of violation to the “Missionaries of Charity, Inc.” for “failure to obtain a valid certificate of use for the type of business being conducted.”
The notice stated that if the “violation” was not corrected by April 1, the sisters would face fines of up to $100 a day for each day the “violation” went uncorrected.
“It’s hard to say what the equivalent is, but picking on these humble nuns is a mistake,” he said.
The Missionaries of Charity have been ministering to the area’s poorest of the poor since 1980 when Mother Teresa established a branch of her community in Miami, Fla.
