The best tribune to Francis Cardinal George

Among  all of the wonderful words printed or spoken about the late Chicago's archbishop, Francis Cardinal George the best tribune comes from Pat Hickey in his blog, With Both Hands. If you haven't acquainted yourself with Pat Hickey, you should do so now. He is more authentically a Chicagoan from the neighborhoods than Studs Terkel or any of his allied poseurs have ever been.

  • Praise from Caesar; thank you, Dennis. I will miss this wonderful, thoughtful and joyful man.

  • Kudos to Pat for sharing the illuminating anecdote about our late spiritual leader. Cardinal George was indeed a man of unshakable faith.

  • That he was Jerry and he walked the talk. We miss him. Last night his memory got a standing ovation from the 700 Alums at the Lexington House.

  • I loved Cardinal George. He was the real deal and counseled our kids who needed him the most. Ed, you are the a priest right out of Cardinal George's spirit. The Church needs men like you now more than ever!assignment arena – helping students
