From the History of ISSUES: "An Encouraging Word"

September 7, 1985:

From a report on the Diocesan Convention in Boston, Mass.
“Politics, wheeling and dealing, was very much part of this Convention in a good way, and appropriately so, as Bishop Coburn noted in his homily. ‘Do not despise hard politics as unworthy of the Holy Spirit,’ he said. ‘Politics is as much part of the Incarnation as any other aspect of the human existence on earth.’ The time while votes were being counted gave an opportunity for caucusing.”
