Sister Carol Keehan greets U.S. President Barack Obama during annual CHA's annual assembly in Washingtonby Carder

Well, I don’t know whether this is appropriate, but I just told Sister Carol I love her. On a big stage.

It is true, though, I do. She is just wonderful. Her dedication to doing God’s work here on Earth, her commitment to serving ‘the least of these,’ her steadiness, her strength, her steadfast voice have been an inspiration to me.

We would not have gotten the Affordable Care Act done had it not been for her. I want to thank the entire Catholic Health Association for the incredible work you do.

And it’s true, I just love nuns, generally. I’m just saying.
