    Thank you so much for posting this. In those days, I worked in midtown and was at that 7:30am mass with Cardinal O’Connor on most days. I have such fond memories of that time and how it fed my soul as I began a return to my childhood faith.

    This is what is so important about essential truths – they are timeless. The words of Cardinal O’Connor do ring as true and as meaningful today as they did in 1993.

    I especially appreciate what he said about how Toussaint respected activists but was not one in that way. I had not thought of that before, yet that is sort of (although I am no Toussaint or even close!) how I see myself. There are many ways and we must all find the path that God leads us on – as activist or otherwise.

    My husband went to Haiti (journalist) in April – things remain so bad there – our help, both practical and prayer is desperately needed.
