I was at Ground Zero soon after the fall of the second tower.  I had wrapped my shirt around my mouth because it was difficult to breath.  I was looking to assure that my son was okay.  He went to a high school nearby.  I was amazed at how totally silent it all was.  I […]

His tracing out of the stifling of worship in our city was illuminating and places the current debate in its proper context. The perpetrators of 9/11 made a bold and deadly assertion as to the nature of God and what it means to serve […]

(Excerpts the Bishop’s column “Islam and Religious Freedom” in The Tablet, August 28, 2010) The events of September 11, 2001 will forever be burned into our minds and consciousness.
