My lovely archbishop! I will never forget this man who put up with so much nonsense during the AIDs epidemic. A true gentleman. Thank you for posting, NYer.
During his years in the Archdiocese of New York, Cardinal OConnor was active in many areas from ministering to both the rich and down trodden, to preaching it was important to live your faith in both politics and even on the baseball field. He would donate his Social Security benefits to a black scholarship fund and give blood to the Red Cross and ask others to "give" too. In the quiet of the night, he was known to visit AIDS patients at an archdiocesan hospital and could be found listening to them, cleaning their sores and changing their bedpans.
How we could use Cardinal O’Connor today instead of the go along get along attitude at St. Patrick’s Cathedral.Cardinal O’Connor had Courage.
