Remembering Francis Cardinal George, OMI – I miss this man and his voice.
“To make Christ’s love visible”
“If I could have only one word on my tombstone, it would be ‘Thanks'”
“You are my legacy”
Here are his final remarks from Sun, Nov 16, 2014, his last public Mass.
How I miss that voice
What a holy man – an inspiration

my chosen one with whom I am pleased,
upon whom I have put my spirit;
“As the pilot of a vessel is tried in the storm; as the wrestler is tried in the ring, the soldier in the battle, and the hero in adversity: so is the Christian tried in temptation.” — St. Basil the Great
“Beloved: Who indeed is the victor over the world but the one who believes that Jesus is the Son of God?”
Just because a Christian won’t support something doesn’t mean he hates the people involved in it.
“The most excellent method he had found of going to God was that of doing our common business without any view of pleasing men, and (as far as we are able) purely for the love of God.” Br. Lawrence, The Practice of the Presence of God
“Let each of us accept the truth of the following statement and try to make it our most fundamental principle: Christ’s teaching will never let us down, while worldly wisdom always will. Christ Himself said that this sort of wisdom was like a house with nothing but sand as its foundation, while His own was like a building with solid rock as its foundation.” — St. Vincent de Paul
