The passing of Cardinal George is, for all of us, a sad day. What we will miss is his insistence that each of us has responsibilities that come from the principles we hold deepest and from our most enduring convictions. More than anything else, Cardinal George was a man of principle. He believed deeply in the dignity of each human being and their right to practice their faith, to be educated to the fullest of their capacities, and to enjoy the same level of health care that should be available to all because of their membership in our human family. He used his mind, his energy, and his skills to advocate for these things, and he was fearless in standing up to those who resisted their civic and moral duties.
