Spiritual Reading for the Catholic Man
Monday, April 17, 2023
Note: During his presentation at the Catholic Men's Forum on April 15th Bishop Perry mentioned this book. The author asked if he could stop by but scheduling would not allow it. So, if you want to meet him or get a signed copy, go to this book signing for the Chicago area on the 17th instead. Still, if you who would prefer to order it online see below. This is all in goodwill for the benefit of your spiritual reading, and CMCS does not make anything from it.  -- Frank J Casella

Cardinal Francis E. George, O.M.I., was a model pastor and a heroic disciple of Christ. A native Chicagoan, he was told as a young man that he would never be a priest in Chicago because of a physical disability resulting from polio. He went on to be ordained a priest with the Oblates of Mary Immaculate in 1963. He was appointed as Archbishop of Chicago in 1997, created a cardinal in 1998, and served in Chicago until 2014, just months before his death at the age of 78. 

Cardinal George's many gifts — including his superior intellect — made him a pivotal player in Church affairs nationally and internationally. He governed during difficult and challenging times, yet he always attempted to lead with the heart of Christ, living out his episcopal motto, "To Christ be glory in the Church.” 


A man of pastoral availability, Cardinal George poured out his life in service to Christ and the Church, always attentive to the poor and those on the margins. Universally admired for his pursuit and proclamation of the truth, and his personal witness to the Gospel, Cardinal George remains a model for discipleship and leadership. By the time of his death in 2015, Cardinal George was regarded as one of the most respected bishops in American Catholic history. His fascinating and inspiring story reminds us that God's ways are always better than our own.
